keep it simple (CFYH 3)

Hey Beautiful -
How has your morning gone so far?  Mine has been go, go, go all morning.
And now, I have a chance to just sit and take a deep breath and just 

- exhale -

Ah, feels much better.
I wanted to tell you how much your comments and email messages yesterday touched me.  Your words of love and prayer brought tears to my eyes.  For that, I am eternally grateful.

Today, I just want everything to go back to being simple.  A day where I have no worries with a little bounce in my step.  You know what I mean, right?
It is a warm 80-ish degrees on this California "winter" day and I'm kinda loving it.
I have my always-puts-me-in-a-good-mood red shoes on.
I had a bowl of fresh sweet fruit for breakfast.
I juiced.
I had coffee.
All if well in my world.

And...I feel pretty beautiful today.
No, I don't have any photos to show because I just feel beautiful all over...
from the inside out.
And it's good to feel that way.

You should feel that way.
No, I understand.  Some days you're just not feeling it - but some days...
Oh Lovey, the beauty of you just shines through every pore of yourself.
It's the day that you are just happy.
Refreshed and feeling good with your little slice of the world.

You don't have to be dressed up or have a full face of makeup on or have your hair perfect.
Sometimes your brand of beautiful is just that...
All-around beautiful you-ness.

So keep it simple today.
Keep the be-you-tiful going.
If not today...that's okay.
There's always tomorrow....or the next five minutes or hours.  Just make it happen.
For you.
Just for you.

Talk to you later, beautiful.
This week's prompt:
"You're beautiful...just as you are"


  1. I'm here from Holley's! I read today's post, then I read yesterday's post, and wow! You are a beautiful, victorious, perseverer. You are amazing.

  2. It's funny how a great pair of shoes can make us feel pretty!

  3. Your picture caught me and pulled me in. Red shoes are always beautiful. But this phrase of yours, "your brand of beautiful," now that is really sticking with me and is beautiful -- both in the way the words work together and in its meaning. I'm glad you wrote and I'm glad I read.

  4. This is such a great post! I agree with Ruth ^^ "Your Brand of Beautiful" is so powerful. It really makes you think. Glad that you're linking up with Coffee for Your Heart. That's how I found you. I also love that you're using the #coffeeforyourheart hashtag on instagram. I think we're pretty much the only people doing that. Maybe more will start. Read you next week, friend. :)
