I'm surrounded by beautiful people.

Wherever I go, whatever I do, I see SO MUCH beauty in everything.

Too often do people feel discouraged, lost, forgotten.
With all that is going on in the world today, I know that we can find peace in the little things, no matter what they are.

Today I didn't wear any makeup, and I didn't curl my hair.

Today, I embraced my own beauty.

Today, I smiled when I was happy, and frowned when I was sad.

Today, I played my dad's old guitar, and I put my poetry to song.

Today, I cried when my best friends left for Japan.

Today, I cried out of exhaustion, sadness, and anger.

Today, I am grateful for beauty.

One day, I want someone tell me with the most genuine intentions that they think I'm beautiful even if I'm small, even if I'm aching, even if I cry so easily.

I want to love others the same way.  I want to hold a child and tell them I love them for their beauty, even though they're vulnerable, even though they're tired, even though they're hurt.

Today, I decided that everyone should feel beautiful, so I told someone they were beautiful.
