Some times you have to look a little harder to see things clearly....

Sometimes you have to look into the distance to see beauty....

Sometimes beauty is right in front of your face...


 
Sometimes beauty is mixed in with the ordinary...
What makes us decide what is beautiful and what is not?
Why does one person see beauty in something that others do not?
I hear a lot of people talking about their gray hair...wrinkles...lack of hair etc....
Not thinking there is any beauty in them...
But when I look at them I see their beauty...not inspite of these things but because of these things....but it is totally different when I'm looking into my mirror..so I'm trying to look at these things in myself with the same eyes I have for others....looking back at old photos of myself I wonder why did I feel so unatractive? Why did I feel so awkward? Why didn't I see what others tell me they saw? I think we all need to see the beauty in ourselves...it's a work in progress.....
