Beauty in a Nutshell

We should not reject others because they don’t look like us.We all have our own beauty. Learn to accept all individuals as equals and to offer help to those who need it. Greet the world with a hug and the world may just decide to hug back.

I don’t neglect to wear makeup on most days because I believe it takes beauty away,

I do so because I do not believe that you can trap beauty in a jar.


I refuse to believe that our scars need to be concealed.

They are the details that distinguish us in a crowd.


They are evidence that you have been andthat you have seen.

They are proof that no matter how gruesome your inflictions were,

you came out on the other side, a survivor,

with the courage to face each day and smile.


Who decided that everyone in the world should be polished

and that society should scorn those who bear their blemishes openly, without fear?


Beauty is raw.

It the first version of yourself you see each day

when you are straight out of bed.

I believe your unaltered self is the most beautiful self you can be.

  1. And that is a beautiful way of thinking.
    Once when my ex-husband complained about my looks, I told him that if you loved someone they were always beautiful to you. I still believe that.
    Mega hugs dear David. 😀

  2. You’re quite right Teagan. Whether it’s inner beauty or outward beauty, love sees it and is often blind to any faults.I’d say that made me quite lucky to have been married.
