Are You Too Afraid To Feel Beautiful?

I may own a blog but on most days, I like being a blog reader even more. hehe :) It's nice to blog-hop to inspiring sites especially when you're having a not-so-good day. I have my favorite bloggers list: Worship Matters, The Boundless, Pattylaurel, Mike's blog and of course Kevin Martineau's blog.  Kevin always gives the coolest and somewhat hilarious reviews. I may not agree with everything on these blogs but they give me a nice view of what goes on in other people heads :). A few weeks back, I made another discovery: Lauren's blog - ! I read a beautiful post and I truly felt beautiful! 

Okay, here's an excerpt:
We are too scared to talk about our bodies as though we actually love them.We forget to rejoice in having a body uniquely our own, and glorious in its uniqueness. It’s easy to find beauty in nature around us, or look at all our friends and find their beauty so evident. But it’s harder to look in the mirror and acknowledge the beauty right in front of us. 
It’s hard to accept a compliment on a day you feel particularly not beautiful. It’s hard to accept the fact that our point of view is not the only one that matters: there are people who love us and find us beautiful even when we cannot see our own beauty. We are too afraid to acknowledge that we are worthy of being loved, and beautiful because of that.We are too afraid to rejoice in our own beauty.

Isn't that just true? You can read more on that amazing post here through Lauren's blog.  

Walk through today with the solid belief that God has made you beautiful!
Have a blessed day.
