When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

What is True Beauty?

Encouraging you to recognize true beauty on near a river.

What is true beauty?

I do not consider myself physically attractive.  On the outside, I am just average physically.  But on the inside, I am beautiful.

I have always been a weed.  Stress resistant and persistent, I thrive in adverse circumstances no matter how rough my circumstances are.

I am also helpful and kind, and I love to help others.  Every day of my life, I find someone to help.  Today on Memorial Day I saw an advertisement in the newspaper.  A disabled veteran wanted someone to help him clean out his garage.  I celebrated Memorial Day by going to his home and finding ways to help him.

So I am a helpful and kind weed.  And I feel beautiful inside because of my attitude toward life and other people.  I know I am beautiful because of how I treat others.

Are you a weed?  Are you helpful and kind?  If so, do not look at yourself in the mirror to see your beauty.  Know that you are beautiful because of how you treat others.

Knowing you are beautiful helps you feel better about yourself.  It boosts your self-confidence.  It enables you to cope with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and life in general much more easily.

I am beautiful and so are you.  Just look inside yourself and know that you are a helpful and kind and have the persistence of a weed.  Being helpful, kind, and persistent absolutely makes a person beautiful!

Soar like an eagle over life’s storms by improving your coping skills.  Know you are beautiful inside.
