I have such beautiful friends.
And yes, if you are reading this count yourself in.
Because without blogging…
It takes a good friend to read my ridiculousness – and if you enjoy it?
Well then you’re just as special as I am.
We obviously have something in common, which is why I want to share this amazing gift my friend Debbie surprised me with.
Debbie stopped by randomly with the sweetest, encouraging card and one of her favorite photos (she’s a great photog).
I was so touched by the beautiful message in the card – but blown away when she explained what she saw in the picture.
The peacock is looking at it’s reflection – but look at what he sees.
Despite seeing the beautiful colors in the world … his image remains stark. In shadow.
Just take a moment and look at what he is seeing of himself.
There is so much that he is missing.
Don’t we all have a little bit of that Peacock inside?
We, as humans, are so easily deceived by our own self-evaluation.
It’s heartbreaking how we can be so blind to our own amazing beauty. And how sometimes that blindspot can leads us to behaviors and attitudes that harm us.
We are all Children of God, or for those who prefer –
Birds of a Feather.
What I’m saying is….we’re all
Unless….you can be a unicorn. Then for sure do that.
I hope you remember this whole “peacock thing” at a time when you feel anything less than WHO you really are and what you’re capable of.
You need to know that while contemplating a clever title for this post I naturally thought of incorporating Peanut Butter …….
I’m ruined for a while. I know I say “peanut butter on ALL the things!” but…no.
