“Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are.” ~ Markus Zusak
This quote reaches out and strikes a gentle, thrumming cord in my heart. Why? Simply because it is so gorgeously true. Sometimes people are truly beautiful. Not in their looks , nor in what they say or even in what they do. They are beautiful just in what and who they are. Those who are themselves, through and through, who are stretching out and filling in their skin with their very essence. Those who acknowledge their whole, their faults, their flaws, their sorrows and joys, their imperfect perfection that makes them, them. These are the beautiful, the glorious, the shining delights of the human experience. They are beautiful for living, for shining out the pureness of their souls and letting it reflect upon all those who encounter them. For some, this is just who and what they are, for others it may come and go (everyone has a different path, a different way of being), but it can and does exist for each and every soul who takes on this human experience. The secret is letting it happen, is letting your own inner light shine through all the muck. It’s about embracing all of what you are and allowing the goodness, the sweet spark of the divine you have to breathe and be seen. It’s trusting that you are innately perfect just as you are and knowing that even if others may choose to judge, there is actually nothing lacking in you, nothing to really judge or find wrong. You have the ability to be beautiful just by being what you are, you only have to believe in you. The rest will be fine. So shine you beauty. Shine.
