Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Yet there are traits that are universally seen as beautiful. A slender body, a full bust line, flawless skin. I asked my boss at the time about an executive that she had just come out of a meeting with and her response was “She was beautiful, both inside and out”. Since that moment that is the definition of beauty that I desire to achieve.
Ironically 2016 rang in my 40th birthday as well. I was surrounded by the best friends that a girl could ever dream of – those that exemplify beauty both on the inside and the outside. These are my partners in crime, my examples of love – I wonder how I am lucky enough to be deserving of such love.
My 2016 goal focuses on inner beauty. Being a Primary Chorister, songs relate well in many aspects of my life. You may know this little ditty:
“I want to be kind to everyone, for that is right it’s true. So I say to myself, remember this……Kindness begins with you.”
This is my year to be kinder. To those I love, to those I don’t know, to animals, to our planet, to my children, to my husband, to myself. Kindness will begin with me.
Speaking of kindness – check out this GORGEOUS frame and chalk board my friends made me for my office. Working in high end furniture you just can’t have ANYTHING hanging on your wall! I created the stencil on my Silhouette Cameo with a flourish from their store. Quick project, amazing results! How can you not be encouraged to do a small act of kindness by this piece!
Till next time – as Ellen says “Be kind to one another”.
