Tomorrow, I will be celebrating my birthday... which I think officially makes me over the hill now. But it's ok, because I told my husband that it's my 3rd 29th birthday. That works right? I'm off for the rest of the week, but have a great treat for you all today. I want you all to meet one of my blog friends, Rick from Ricademus - Waiting for Wisdom... take it away Rick!
Hi there, my name is Rick. Always Maylee is a great blog and it’s an honor to be a part of it today. Ironically, I barely have anything to say on my own blog, but we found a topic that works better here anyway—what makes someone beautiful.
As I considered the question, I realized much of what I have to say is cliche. No one wants to hear that. I decided to try and see if there’s a common theme among women I've found beautiful. I consider my girlfriends beautiful. But they were all different, with different hair, skin, build, and personalities, so I couldn't conclude anything from them.
I reviewed a few "most beautiful" lists for help, but completely disagreed with their choices. Who creates those lists anyway? The most beautiful women I've seen are not celebrities or models. The lists weren't helpful at all! I decided there is no common theme among beautiful girls. They have different career paths and different marital statuses. Some have kids, some are pregnant, and some don't. They're shy or outgoing, they're homebodies or socialites, they're clumsy or athletic. They are not arrogant, selfish, or mean. They're kind and their smiles light up rooms.
They are you! If you don’t see yourself as beautiful, please look again. Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and from all corners of the world. The cliches are right. As long as you’re healthy, happy, and care about the people in your life, then you radiate beauty.
As a reward to readers who made it through to this point, my friend Jo the owner of Fleurfaerie, is giving away a $50 gift card to her shop. Fleurfaerie is an international online retailer of fashionable ladies' wear & accessories based in Singapore. They believe in beauty inside and out and love adorning individuals with beautiful clothes and accessories to complement a beautiful heart.
This giveaway is open internationally.
