Born This Way

People look within themselves and look at others, and they see things that they do not like, but can not fix.  We then focus on these things, and it can become something we fixate on... and we no longer see the beauty that is there. To me, this is like looking at a rose and seeing nothing but the thorns, we never look past and accept what we don’t like.  These things make us different, and why we may not like what we see it makes us who we are.  We need to accept that we are born the way we are, and love ourselves and each other… and celebrate what makes us different.

Pine cones always catch my attention--and you've succeeded in drawing me in!


The look at the sky, and they say,
“Though storm clouds be scudding my way,
I still like the sight;
By day or by night
All heaven’s a stunning display.”

I agree...but it's very difficult at times, especially when our culture demands that "beauty" be defined in certain ways.

I mean, I always wanted to look like Clark Gable. Never happened. The reality was more Woody Allen. ;-)
