you are beautiful & amazing..

I mentioned yesterday on Twitter that music and their accompanying videos sometimes lead to great inspiration for posts.  Todays inspiration - Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are."  The songs from his albums that I have heard always seem to have this "so true" message, that most people in today's world have experienced.  You sit there listening, thinking, "OMG, that's me!" And with a New Year knocking on our door, this seems to be a fitting post for a New Year, New You kind of start.

"Just The Way You Are" is such a beautiful message that most of us, myself included, really need to listen to.  So many times we allow ourselves to get caught up in the Hollywoodness of society - thinking we have to look a certain way, dress a certain way, be a certain body type, etc.  I mean the list goes on for days.  Ask the Mister.  He can vouch for me being oh so guilty of the beating up of myself because I don't feel I look the way I should because of all the meaness and stereotypes everyone has of each other. 

This song shows us we are perfect all in our own ways.  We are loved because of the way we are, not of the ways we "aren't."  The people that truly love us, love us because of our inner and outer beauty, not just what we are wearing or what hairstyle we have.

So I am making this one of my many New Year resolutions - to stop being so critical of myself and to start loving me for me. I want everyone to wake up in the mornings and say "I love me," including myself.  

Will you join me??
