When You Aren't Looking

People see you.  People watch you.  People adore and appreciate you.  People admire you.  People smile because of you...when you aren't looking.

Often, people may wish to know others' thoughts of them...although many would never admit to it.  You'd love to know that something you did helped someone else.  You love the feeling of knowing you did something right and good.  You could be someone's hidden treasure, but you'd never know.  You could be emulated daily...when you aren't looking.

Be confident.  Be humble.  Be kind.  Be loving.  Someone is cherishing and commending your character...and you aren't even looking.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

When people leave or walk out of your life, it's for a reason.  At times, it's hard to accept someone walking away, but ultimately it's for the best.  Maybe you can't see the future reasons right now.  Maybe you don't fully understand right now.  Just know that whenever one door closes, another opens.

You are always standing at the doorway of opportunity when someone walks away.  There's an opportunity to learn, to explore, to reflect, to embrace the opportunity at hand and grow from it.  If you are sad, angry, or disappointed...let it last only for a moment.  Your next opportunity awaits and requires your full attention.  Someone or something leaving your life could actually be your doorway to bigger & better things.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Love On Time

Does love ever show up when you want it to or when you think it should?  I don't think so.  It always rears its head when you least expect it.  You can't plan to fall in love and you can't make yourself fall out of love.  The heart isn't designed to take orders.

Love happens on its own schedule.  It never comes around with who YOU choose or when you'd prefer it, but it's always on time.  Your heart has its own time to open and its own time to heal.  You could learn a thing or two if you listen to it sometimes.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Real Life

The way you feel is is the way you make others feel.  You can never know beforehand exactly how you will impact someone else's life or exactly how someone else may impact yours.  However, one thing you should always know is that we are all connected in one way or another.  What each of us does matters more than you know.

Time spent with others, conversations had, jokes told, laughs belted out, cries sobbed onto lended shoulders, pats on the back, feelings hurt, anger born out of disagreements or all matters.  Never take for granted one moment spent with or without the people in your life.  Every moment counts and so do the people with whom each moment is spent.  Whether you know/believe it or not, someone is watching you and using your life as an example of how to live.  Be careful what you impart into someone else's life...even if by happenstance.  This is no fairy's real life.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Your Smile

Your smile is beautiful.  Your eyes dance when you smile.  Your heart leaps when you smile.  People feel warmth when you smile.  People smile when you smile.

People feel better when you smile.  They no longer feel alone or uncared for when you smile.  Your smile triggers childish laughter in the oldest of people.  Nothing can replace your smile, not even the sunshine.  Your smile is more powerful than you think and it needs to be seen...people are depending on it.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
