Tuesday, April 26th: “Firework“-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm]
Author and eastern philosopher Khalil Gibran says that “beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” Many times people can expect us to live up to their ideals for us. Because these pressures can make us feel stripped of our core identity, we can feel detached, misunderstood, and lonely. But just like Gibran says, our beauty is not something that can be quantified by whether we fit a mold of what people want from us.
Our beauty is more ”like a lightning bolt/your heart will blow/and when it’s time you’ll know.” You might be fat, skinny, short, tall, have freckles, or have dark skin. You might like piercings and tattoos or preppy clothes. Whatever you are, that’s you. Take notice of your inner light and let is shine.
