a simple thought


What 'normal' people perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it."

-Alexander McQueen, legendary fashion designer

Sometimes life, people, circumstances, the clothes kids pick out to dress themselves in for the day can be ugly. But...are they really? What if there is beauty in everything? What if the mundane, the seemingly unapproachable, the unkind, the stuff of life all still possess so much beauty that - if we look beyond outward appearances - we can see it?

I say yes. I contend that everything is beautiful. We just have to dig deep enough to find it sometimes. But once we get our shovels out and reach the spring of beauty under the sand of crap we have truly found a treasure. We have found a means of peace and contentment and rocking a smile no matter what life throws our way.

So, today, let's find the beautiful. In whatever you (WE) are faced with, let's look for the glittering gold under the gray. 'Cause gold is pretty and sparkly and much more fun.
