The thing about Beauty...

My sister, Christy is in the video. She makes an amazing Vampire. She is so talented! And the music is great! I love Coury Palermo's voice actually. I especially love his version of Another Day in Paradise.

I looked outside the window this morning and was amazed at how beautiful it was. Infact, on my drives to and from California, I am always impressed and just awed at how beautiful it is. I don't think it matters where you live. You can find beauty in everything. The trees, the mountains, the dessert, the forest, the animals, the people. It's all beautiful.

Infact, as a massage therapist, I see many people. (I know I've touched on this subject before) But I really love people. I love the diversity in people. The way we live our lives, the way we interact with people and of course the physical traits. I have yet to meet an ugly person. Yes, we all have flaws. But those flaws are what make us different. They make us unique. They are a beautiful. I don't buy into this "you have to be a size 0 to be beautiful". That's bunk. I think there is beauty in every size. There is a story to every scar. There is something great about being flawed. As Caitlin Crosby sings, "Imperfect is the new perfect."
I highly suggest checking out her site as well as her new cd.

So, today I give you a challenge: whether you are out and about today, at work or even staying at home working around the house; look for the beauty around you, notice the differences between people and places. Celebrate your differences. Remember, God is the creator of all, and he doesn't make mistakes. He doesn't put ugly into this world. We create it. So, out with the ugly, lets just celebrate and love our flaws!
