Do you look in the mirror and see wrinkles? Or perhaps blemishes? Maybe even weight issues? Do you look in the mirror and feel unworthy?
Do you go to work dreading another eight hours at the office? Or that your boss is unfair? Do you go to work and feel unworthy?
Do you look at your loving relationships with frustration and anger? Perhaps you aren’t in the relationship you desire and you see yourself alone. Do you feel you unworthy of a successful relationship?
Whether it’s your self image, professional image, financial image, or relationship image, focusing on the ugly of it will bring you more ugly. I encourage you to find the beauty in ugly. Being happy where you are today allows the possibility of transformation for tomorrow. Assess your life with gentle, loving eyes. See the beauty in every aspect of your life. Find gratitude in every situation as it’s there if you look for it. See the beauty in others as it’s there. Say thank you for everything you love in your life and be gentle with what you perceive as bad and unwanted as there is beauty there too if you look for it.
Affirmation: I am beautiful, loving, and loved.

For the next week, I invite you to find the beauty in ugly by:
Seeing through rose colored glasses and finding the good in a contrasting experience.
Shining light into the dark crevices of self doubt, fear, and perceived ugliness
Appreciating your yesterday’s as they brought you to today. Enjoy your today as it brings you to tomorrow. Get excited about your tomorrows as you are creating tomorrow today.
Asking what love would say/do. Love sees the beauty in all situations.
Mostly, I wish for you is to see the beauty in every situation as it is there if you look for it. Look in the mirror and focus on what makes you unique and beautiful. Look at your work and focus on what you love about what you do. Look at those you love and focus your attention on those qualities that make them unique and beautiful.
Until next week, be the beauty you want to see in the world by laughing, loving, and living in peace.
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
