Beautiful…Yes! You Are!
For those of you that follow me on Facebook, you might wonder why I add the emotion emoji beautiful to my post every time I post my blog. It is a simple reminder for myself.
This world can be an ugly place, where not so nice things happen. When these things happen we can start to lose our focus on how valuable and worthy we are. Especially, when this old world beats us down and we have the bruises and scars to prove it, it is easy to feel unattractive, damaged and not so beautiful!
We can try to cover those bruises with make up, but that can’t cover the bruises on the inside. Much of how we feel comes from the inside. It is no wonder, why we feel not beautiful. This world can be really cruel and hard on us, but we are even harder on ourselves than this world is. We all have dings and cracks, no one is model perfect!
So, through all the abandonment, rejection, abuse, lies and deception, I need to remind myself as often as possible that I am beautiful! Just like stain glass or mosaic! Broken but fused together into a beautiful masterpiece, one God created.
So, from here on out, I will now sign my blog the following way. Why, because you need to be reminded too, just how beautiful you are!
You’re not alone, you are beautiful!
