Hey good looking!

“Laughter is beautiful.  Kindness is beautiful.  Cellulite is beautiful.  Softness and plumpness and roundness are beautiful.  It’s more important to be interesting, to be vivid, and to be adventurous than to sit pretty for pictures.  The soft tummy of a woman is a miracle of nature.  Beauty comes from tenderness.  Beauty comes from variety, from specificity, from the fact that no person in the world looks exactly like anyone else.  Beauty comes from the tragedy that each person’s life is destined to be lost to time.  I believe women are too hard on themselves.  I believe that when you love someone, she becomes beautiful to you.  I believe the eyes see everything through the heart, that nothing in the world feels as good as resting them on someone you love.  I have trained my eyes to look for beauty, and I’ve gotten very good at finding it.  You can argue and tell me it’s not true, but I really don’t care what anyone says.

Everyone Is Beautiful.”

~ Katherine Center

It isn’t about what you see, but how you see it. Just like living hope, seeing beauty is an action.

When I wake up in the morning and face the mirror I don’t feel beautiful. This quote from Katherine Center’s book, “Everyone is Beautiful”, is a great reminder that what is inside counts more than what is on the outside.

I still love my creams and potions and whatnots. It just isn’t what defines me, or any of us.

When I look in your eyes I know I will see beauty.
