You Are Not Pretty

The above picture is very pretty all round and is a picture of pretty flowers and a pretty girl.

I recently went to visit my younger daughter and her two children while her husband was away on a course. And as lockdown had been revised I was able to do so.

I had not seen them in many months.

Selena put a couple of pretty slides in Skye's hair and I commented on how pretty Skye looked. Selena said that Skye looked pretty all the time. Selena was not being patronising, instead she had a new way of thinking.

Yes, Skye is very pretty with pretty eyes, pretty hair, and her pretty slides and her pretty dress. But we must remember that we are pretty all the time.

We are pretty even when we wake up and look in the mirror at our dishevelled hair.

We are pretty even before we put on our best party outfit and out new make-up.

We must remember we are pretty all the time.

And those who say the beauty comes from within - beauty is all around us all the time. We are beautiful no matter what we look like, or what we are wearing.

A blind person cannot see what we are wearing. A blind person will go by their sense of smell or touch or even just sense our presence. A blind person will not actually see with their own eyes whether a person is pretty or not and therefore they will not be able to judge them. A blind person may listen to your voice and say that your voice is deep or croaky, if you have a cold, but still your voice will not be ugly your voice will be - well - your voice.

We humans are so quick to judge.

Everyone is pretty all of the time.

It does not depend upon -

what you wear

your eyes

you nose

your lips

your new dress

your new shoes

your designer outfit

whether you are rich or poor

whether you are from the North or the South

whether you are old or young, male or female

You are pretty no matter who you are, where you come from, what you do, what you believe in, what you think, what you wear, what you say, and anything else you can think of.

~You are pretty, no matter what.

You are pretty.
