I feel most beautiful when…
…I’m just being me.
Besty Transatlantically is hosting an amazing link-up with the prompt “I feel beautiful when.” Betsy announced the link-up last week and I spent the weekend thinking about what to write. What an amazing pick-me-up to let your mind wander to all the times you feel beautiful. Turns out, I feel beautiful more often than I stop to reflect on. What an awesome discovery!
When do I feel most beautiful? I have many answers to this: when I feel strong from running; when my niece and I are playing firefighters and rescuing her stuffed spider from the bookcase; when I get a phone call from a friend that lives in another town and we giggle as if we were in the same room; when I belt out “This Girl is On Fire!” by Alicia Keys; when I’m alone with my thoughts for a few minutes over a hot cup of coffee; and on and on. All of these thoughts made me come to just one realization: I feel most beautiful when I’m just being plain old Stacey and I’m not trying to impress anyone else. I feel most beautiful when I just let me be me and shine on through. It was an amazing and freeing thought.
And you? When do you feel most beautiful?
Until next time!
