Today an old ugly aquantaince came back into my life… the feeling of “not enough”-ness…
While watching a movie I saw a woman with a perfectly straight, beautiful, nose. Regal and proud it sat in the middle of her face…not too big, not too small, not off centered and definitely without any blemish.
For a split second I thought to myself “I wish I had her nose”. Then i recognized that thought for what it was…discontent.
I had to remind myself that I have enough.
Not that I am enough…but that I have enough- That I was made with a purpose and that those who love me can see past my imperfect, to me, nose and can see me for who I am. If they, or I, can only focus on comparing myself, or parts of my body, to others…then I have lost the bigger picture.
How can I show beauty… not in looks, but in words and deeds and in love? How can I turn something ugly, into something good? I am not sure that I have that capability, but I know the one who can turn ashes into beauty…its my job to remember and remind people of that.
If, I don’t show love…then it does not matter if I have flawless skin or the biggest muscles, or the best looking nose…it will all be pointless….
I am not sure where I am going with this post, but maybe it will encourage me, and hopefully others too, when feeling like what I have is not enough.
