Despite The Messages We Are Given - YOU are Beautiful!

Each and every human being is beautiful, just as they were created.  Society - especially in the West - teaches us that if we don't look like a hot hottie on MTV or in Hollywood that we are somehow inferior.


We are presented with altered images of unrealistic body images and are "told" that this is what is beautiful.

Note the tiny disproportionate waist size in the photo on the right.



The truth is, unrealistic and unattainable images are presented to us - especially to women - all of the time. Real beauty is what you see when you look in the mirror. Real beauty is the love that radiates from your heart...that can be felt in your touch and the space around you...that can be seen in the compassion of your eyes.



If you're having a down day and feeling badly about yourself...insecure...concerned about appearances.  Take a few moments right now. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Repeat to yourself: "I am a child of the Universe, and I am Worthy. I am perfect, just as I was created."

If you believe this message and know someone who might need this reminder, please share it with them. ♥


Namaste,
Debbie aka Sulilo
