You Are Absolutely Beautiful


Today I had a special dinner. I was selected as one of the top students who volunteers their time to work with perspective students in our Enrollment Office. We do things such as eat lunch with perspectives, host them as overnights, or just talk to them about what we love about Juniata. 

Anyway, this dinner was with the President of the college, which was a really amazing opportunity and I was extremely honored that they chose me as one of the students. 

However, I had no idea what to wear. I have just been so stressed lately with finals approaching and I feel like my mind just can't keep up. So, I texted my dear friend Amanda and asked her if she could help me pick out something to wear and she immediately came to my aid. As I was trying clothes on, I vaguely noticed that she was drawing something on one of my note pads. 

It wasn't until later that I looked at it and I just wanted to cry. (A good cry, not a bad cry.) Even though Amanda helped me pick out something really cute to wear, that wasn't the reason that I felt beautiful. No, the reason that I felt beautiful is because I know that I am truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family in my life. 

This is something that has taken me a long time to learn and really understand. Beauty doesn't have anything to do with what you are wearing. No, I'm just as beautiful now, wearing my ratty "it is finals time" sweatpants and my supermegafoxyawesomehot T-shirt. Beauty how you act and the people that your surround yourself with. Beauty is how you life your life. 

Remember that you are absolutely beautiful no matter what. 

xoxo, 
Laura

It really does sound like you have wonderful friends! That is def always a hard concept to grasp and I have to admit some days I'm much better at it than others (and some days honestly my attitude isn't beautiful, but of course I'm working on it & this was a great reminder, thanks! & thx for your sweet comment : )
