Reverb 14 | Prompt 2 | Gorgeous

#reverb14 is a prompt-a-day series for the month of December that is meant to give us all the chance to reflect on 2014 and the opportunity to write down our hopes and dreams for the coming year. Through December 31st Meredith,Sarah and I will be posting each day with a new prompt. Join us by writing, or join us by reading. No matter what you choose, come with us.

Gorgeous: When did you feel beautiful this year? Why?

“Happy girls are the prettiest.”

-Audrey Hepburn

The Cabin 116

I felt beautiful on the days where we were fishing and I was standing in the sun, with my hair in a knot.

I feel beautiful when I am running and I do not notice my body beyond my inhalations and my exhalations and the pounding of my feet.

And then there were the days where I wore fake eyelashes.  I felt like not myself at all.

What it all comes down to is that where I am happiest, when I am happiest, so goes it that I feel the prettiest too.  Me feeling beautiful does not come from a place of effort, and it does not come from trying.  It does not come from a place of the most expensive dresses or the most luxurious accessories.  Me feeling beautiful comes from loving the life I live in that moment.
