I’ve come to realize there are a lot of amazing things about blogging…the people I’ve met from it, therapy for myself, and hopefully the ability to help people in some way, shape or form. This week I was reminded of another awesome reason: the people who read my blog. After my last post, I got an amazing comment from a lovely girl named Ana (check out her fantastic blog here). She reminded me of something so important that I had forgotten amidst my self-pity this past week. Beauty is not defined by how we look (no matter what the world around us might say). Attractiveness is what is defined by how we look. Physical attractiveness. But not only is that extremely subjective, it also has nothing to do with true beauty.
I was so focused on what was wrong with me physically, I completely lost sight of all my inner qualities. The qualities that truly make me beautiful. The things I contribute to the world that don’t include my face or body. The things that aren’t going to fade with age anyway.
So thank you very much Ana for reminding me of that very important fact I’d forgotten this week. Bloggers inspiring each other…another one of my favorite things about blogging 🙂
