It’s all About…What’s on the inside!
How many of you have looked around you and have seen beautiful faces and thought, I would like to get to know that person? Sort of an instant crush based on appearances only.
Here’s the thing, the external appearance should mean nothing to you. It’s all about what is on the inside.
Long ago my Grandmother told me that a youthful pretty face eventually would age and if you were not a good person inside, eventually, the meanness, the poor juju, the evilness would show on your face.
I think when I had my facial cancer surgery in 2013 I started to really look around and think about what Grandma had told me.
As I sat in the plastic surgeon’s office I saw people there to have serious rebuilds done to their faces. They were accompanied by a friend or family member. And listening to their conversations I heard the sounds of love, care, and concern.
There I was feeling very sorry for myself and the loss of the face that God gave me, and there were people far worse off, with people that loved them by their side.
I suppose that was when I started to consider the person I was, how I treated people, and how I wanted to live out my life.
I decided to look for beauty in every person I saw. At the same time, I needed to stop allowing myself to only find my value, in my face.
I think having my face rearranged was the best thing that could have happened to me. It made me grow. It made me look outside of the box at what real value is in one’s life.
