Worms & dirt or diamonds & beauty???

"Imperfection is beauty; madness is genius; and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." - Marilyn Monroe

Are you more at ease with worms & dirt or diamonds & fashion? I am most definitely a worms and dirt kind of girl. I have an amazing friend who is more inspired by diamonds and fashion. What is important isn't where your passion lies, it is that you have passion in the first place. If you live from your heart, it won't matter a hoot where you find joy. It is in finding joy that makes your heart smile.

When you heart smiles you are beautiful, because that beauty comes from within. Inner beauty radiates a joyful light. There is no makeup in the world that can give you radiance like a heart filled with joy and love.

The last couple years of my grandma Ella's life she could no longer see clearly and yet her eyes sparkled. She was in her 90's, in wheel chair and a bit wrinkled. She was magnificent. I remember sitting with her visiting and thinking how incredibly beautiful she was. It took my breath away. Her beauty wasn't physical, it was her inner beauty that shone so bright. Always, teaching me lessons, she again taught me, your true beauty is internal not external.

If you have the grace to take fashion to an art. If your eye's light up when you see gold and diamonds then celebrate this. If you are most at home digging in dirt and making compost then celebrate this. It isn't what you do but how you do it. If what you love gives you great joy, then this will be seen by all. There is no need to judge ourselves or others by outward appearances but to learn to see the light in us all. If you find joy in dirt,diamonds or even fruitcake don't question but celebrate. Let this passion be your best beauty treatment.
