Just The Way We Are

I was trying to think of a message for my #2 positive message of this day, when I stumbled upon this: each of us is beautiful, just the way we are and God intended us to be. Society wants us to believe there is something wrong with us, we should be thinner, taller, handsome, knocked out dead gorgeous, dressed up for the ages and on and on and on. But don’t believe it. It is all you, what comes from within. Not the outer layer of you. When you go to your grave, people won’t remember what kind of suit you were wearing, if it was a Jordan or Nike, how great your eyes looked in that teal eye shadow or how perfect that outfit hugged your curves or how those 5 inch heels shaped your calves (and ruined your feet), nail color. They will remember the essence of you – how you lived your life, how you made them feel, the things you did for others, and who you were inside. Remove the facade and let it be. Know that you are perfect and beautiful, just as you were born and intended to be.
