Beauty begins in seed form. It exists even before anyone can recognize it. It begins within. And just like this flower, stunning beauty occurs when we flourish and become all we were created to be. This flower is not a rose or a lily (I actually don’t know what type of flower this is). It is beautiful just as it is. It doesn’t have to be anything other than what it was created to be. Friend, you are beautiful because you are you. Your beauty is existed within you long before you or anyone else could see it. As one soul said, “Beautiful=Be You Till Full.” Beauty…true beauty, is an inside job;).
