O IS FOR JUST HOW OBSERVANT ARE YOU


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched…but are felt in the heart. ~ Helen Keller

Good morning, everyone!

Up to a few minutes ago, I had no idea what I was going to post today that would be an interesting letter O theme. I logged onto Facebook and one of my author friends, L.j. Charles posted this video. Please take a moment and watch it. It is really fantastic.


I can’t help wondering how I would have described myself. It wouldn’t have been very flattering. When I look in the mirror, all I see are the things I wish I could change; my nose is an odd shape, the dark circles under my eyes that never go away, my weight….

Why is it I’m so hard on myself? I don’t see faults in others. I think it all boils down to the fact that I see the inner beauty that shine in others, but don’t look for the inner beauty in myself. 

Maybe I need to stop and take a deeper look at myself, try to see myself the way my kids see me, the way my husband sees me. Something to think about….

((Hugs to all))
