“It’s a special place where people think you’re beautiful; it’s more powerful when you know that yourself.” Kris Vallotton
Beautiful might have excellence of form or color; though lack of symetry and uniqueness intrigue.
It has noble and spiritual qualities, inspiring, encouraging and evoking life within.
Handsome is stately or pleasing; masculine and strong.
Lovely is beautiful in a warm and endearing way.
My experience and observations have taught me that we have trouble with being noticed as beautiful, handsome or lovely. We bow our heads, look away, smile timidly and sometimes deny the compliment.
Why? What has made beauty something that troubles us? Is it too intimate, reaching to deep places in our souls that would rather remain hidden?
Is it more that it cuts through lies we have been taught, such as appreciating our own qualities is conceited and vain?
Does it give others influence that challenges our sense of comfort?
Do you know you are beautiful?
Will you wear the handsome loveliness that is unique to you with dignity?
May the power of beauty shine through and around you.
