reverb 10: [beautifully different]

December 9, 2010

Beautifully Different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful.

It is important to have a sense of self, and to love who you are, but it is also important to constantly be evolving towards being a better person, stronger, more whole. I am learning both.

It is each person’s story that makes them different – their history and family, education, and religious experience. There are a variety of threads, layers, rips and tears, patches and glue, holes, and whole parts; a collage of sorts.

I am an observant person, a listener, and lover of beauty. I hope to offer kind words and truth. I hope to inspire wonder in each day, bringing light into dark through the observation of simple, life-giving things. I hope to give genuine love, full embraces, and subtle kindness.

Make meaningful artwork.
Be kind to myself. Be kind to others.
Be motivated by compassion.
Challenge mediocrity.
Cook meals that nourish and inspire.
Ask questions in conversation.
Laugh often with others.
Eliminate self-criticism, and criticism of others.
Offer perspective, affirmation.
Grow spiritually, as to be more peaceful, connected and loving.
