The Nature of Beauty

When I am out in Nature I feel beautiful. The world around me is vital and dynamic. The beauty I see around me lends itself to me and I feel more lovely.  

I think beauty is easy to define. It's an awareness, an aliveness. It's that cheek busting grin that's uncontrollable. 

The funny thing is I feel more beautiful now that I have wrinkles and grey hairs and a nice wide, round belly than I ever did when I was younger. I experience an ease in my skin that allows that inner awareness to shine through more than ever. I also see more beauty around me. 

So, just in case no one mentioned it, you're really beautiful.
