Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Short post today. I'll write more about this some other time, but you know how much I care about women realizing how beautiful they really are. I've been talking to a coworker for the past couple days about the different insecurities I have as a woman, and the ones a lot of women probably have. It was interesting because he's a really great guy and we have talks about body image a lot actually, but he didn't understand a lot of these insecurities I had about my body.

I don't have a lot of time right now, but I just want to say: You are all beautiful in your own way. Seriously. Comparing ourselves to each other is so pointless because we aren't the same person. Would you compare a butterfly to a rose? No. God created us all with a divine and unique purpose, and God does not make mistakes. We are all beautiful to Him, and that's all that matters.

I wanted to write a cool little article about doing hard things and pushing yourself, etc., for this post, but I can't really focus.

For my creative writing class last week, we had to write a poem in iambic pentameter. It was hard. I hated it at first. Then I really liked it. Here it is.

Imagine life without a moon or stars
to guide the dark from dazzling day on home.
The air as still as lilac buds, asleep.
A cricket chirps, another sings and joins
the symphony, the music of the night.
This breathless eternity waits for me.
I taste the wind, the sound, the song, and then
a gradual explosion, diamonds break
across the canvas of the unknown worlds.
I dare not blink for fear to miss the scene.
