As I was driving to work this morning, a song came on the radio that really resonated with me.....
And there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful
It got me to thinking of the days when I did not realize my beauty (inner and outer) and my strengths. Particularly, it reminded me of the day - many years ago - when one of my aunties pulled me to the side and told me that I have one of the most beautiful souls she has ever known and that - one day - there will come a time when I will see it for myself. I didn't really quite know what she truly meant back then ... after all I was just a teenager. Yet, after all those years, her words are still clear as the day she blessed me with them. I look back on my life and the beauty and uniqueness of the world around me ...and I am still grateful for those words to this very day. I am not sure if she realized the impact that they would have on me, but they did and I am so honored.
Just as it meant the world to me back then, I know how important it is for other girls and women to hear positivity spoken into their lives to help them build confidence and grow into their true greatness.
Everything has beauty. I hope you see yours today...tomorrow...and the rest of your life!
