Eye of the beholder
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say. I always knew that we choose to see the beauty in other people, but The Secret taught me a very important lesson: we also choose whether other people will see beauty in us or not.
I always had issues with the way I looked. I thought I was too skinny (yes, it is possible to think so!). People I am close to always reassured me about my looks but it was not enough. I used to have this annoying feeling that somehow I was less attractive than my peers.
But voila! In came The Secret and changed my life! After reading the book I started making a list of all the things I liked about myself, and felt better about myself each day. I also realized that I did not treat my body as respectfully as I should so I started to spend more time on dressing, grooming, etc. And guess what, now I look in the mirror and I like what I see. People tell me that I am beautiful all the time!
I also subconsciously learnt another lesson about beauty: Beauty is not something that can be measured. Its either there or its not. You cannot be less beautiful or more beautiful than anybody, you can only be beautiful. And this outlook makes me one with everybody in my life.
Thanks Rhonda, you are a beautiful woman.
