Monday Musings: Beauty in the Now

We want not only to be loved, we want to think of ourselves as lovely. Rather than see ourselves as we truly are, we see ourselves as we would like to be. Self-deception can be more comforting than self-knowledge. We like to fool ourselves.

-Russ Roberts

Does the quote strike you? Yes? Then sadly you have fallen victim to the pressures of the dumb majority. But hey no worries! You know why? What was in the past and what is yet to come in the future does not matter ( really it does not). No need to deceive yourself by hiding underneath all those cosmetics, undergoing drastic surgeries or cover yourself to please others. There is no need to fake smiles. Trust me when I say, you are beautiful as you are now. Embrace you!
