What makes you feel beautiful?
Is a question too demanding
to be left unanswered,
In a world where everyone
is very sure of your thoughts;
its important to draw boundaries.
Am I beautiful? I ask myself
No, is the immediate answer,
How can I be, when I do not fit
in a classic definition of beauty.
Skinny is everything nowadays,
clear skin, beautiful smile and
having that youthful radiance
And I don't have that.
I want to believe that
Beauty is a state of mind,
As the old adage says:
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
And that beholder is me.
Whatever makes me feel beautiful,
I will go ahead and do it;
eat chocolate 'til I smile,
curl up on the sofa with a great book,
and accept that compliment
from a complete stranger!
Fashion is self-expression.
I will dress myself up to fit
the curves adorned to me,
It makes me feel more beautiful
than trying to attain a certain "acceptable" size.
I promise me, that every once in a while,
I will wear that beautiful,
short, black dress in my closet.
As if I have a date, even when I don't.
I want to date myself,
Go out and find out who is the
person inside of me, what are my likes,
my dislikes, not what or who I am supposed to be.
I think I lost myself somewhere in time.
So I am going to schedule some "me" time.
To pamper the beautiful woman in me!
So I may recapture the beauty of loving me.
I want time, I need time to:
Read; to inspire my beautiful mind.
Volunteer, to be of service to others,
Laugh; to invigorate my soul with the art of laughing.
Sleep, to keep my brain, heart and body healthy
I want to be around people who
help make me feel more beautiful
and appreciate the little things in my life.
I want to bring out my inner beauty
and discover my deep passion in life
What makes me feel beautiful?
It is my dream to live, laugh and love — beautifully.
and I want it to come out at every pore of my being.
