The stories of our bodies are painted all over us
In scars and cellulite
In sagging skin or stretch marks
In in-grown toenails and stray hairs
In the distended belly
In our scar tissue
In the subtle misalignment
between the right and left
hemispheres of the body.
It is these differences
the subtle anomalies that could be considered
that perhaps give us
the opportunity for more
Beauty to shine through.
The beauty of acceptance.
These imperfections are our humanness
and part of our human nature and human story
They are the secret gifts of beauty
Waiting to be anointed
With your acceptance
With your love.
