It’s Friday and I’m so glad to have a moment to sit and share my thoughts on this platform. I’m grateful for Blogtober, whoever created this idea, kudos to you. This structure of writing daily is appreciated and so helpful. Writing is my craft, discipline, my joy and this page is my classroom to learn and grow.
I find it necessary to compliment someone when I see something in them that I admire. What I also find necessary, is to compliment myself, to encourage and say, I love you now, I like where I’m going, and what will I manifest with focus and intention?
I’ve found a few quotes to ponder on, about beauty, embracing the natural you, and simply being human. Hope you have a safe & restful weekend.
“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has-or ever will have-something inside that is unique to all time.”Fred Rogers
“She is a living, breathing work of art.John Mark Green, Taste the Wild Wonder: Poems
As audacious as Dali’s mustache,
mysterious like a Mona Lisa smile.
As sensual as O’Keeffe’s painted petals,
glorious, like a Van Gogh starry night.“
“Being natural is incredibly empowering for women because it’s just who you are. You’re embracing all the beautiful things about you from your head to your toes. Because when you mask so much of your natural beauty, people don’t get to see that.”Rozonda Thomas
“Being yourself means shedding all the layers of looking good, wanting to be liked, being scared to stand out and trying to be who you think people want you to be. Being yourself means being naked, raw and vulnerable.”Jeff Moore
“I just think that people are so weird about nudity and the human body. Sex is not bad, naked bodies are not bad and naked bodies don’t always have to be connected to sex.”Emily Browning
“What happens when you drop all the belief, all the opinions, and all the judgment? Wouldn’t that be a form of nudity as well?”Neeraj Agnihotri
“Looking at beauty in the world, is the first step of purifying the mind.”Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations
“Embrace the glorious mess that you are.”Elizabeth Gilbert
“You are never alone. You are eternally connected with everyone.”Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations
“To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.”Victoria Hugo
“But the real secret to lifelong good health is actually the opposite: Let your body take care of you.”Deepak Chopra
“You can’t make positive choices for the rest of your life without an environment that makes those choices easy, natural, and enjoyable.”Deepak Chopra
“You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.”Brene Brown
“Over the years I have come to believe that life is full of unchosen circumstances, that being human has to do with the evolution of our individual consciousness and with it, responsibilities for choice. Pain and joy both come with life. I believe that how we respond to what happens to us and around us shapes who we become and has to do with the psyche or the soul’s growth.”Jean Shinoda Bolen
“The path to great confidence is not in becoming invincible, flawless, and seemingly perfect. But rather, it is in embracing your humanity, in all its messy glory and tender vulnerability.”Aziz Gazipura
“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, expect to grow spiritually. You are not living by human laws. Expect miracles and see them take place. Hold ever before you the thought of prosperity and abundance and know that doing so sets in motion forces that will bring it into being.”Eileen Caddy
