Kittens. Deep, intense eyes. Fairy lights. The best, brightest smile.
Those are a few things I find beautiful. Know what else is beautiful?
That feeling you get in your stomach that makes you grin and blush when you’re given a lovely compliment. The enthusiasm on the face of a person talking about that one topic that they love most in the whole wide world.
And one other thing. You, dear reader. You are beautiful.
There are many kinds of beauty. Some show on a face, some in the way a person behaves. And then there’s the kind of beauty that’s written on a soul.
There’s beauty in nature, in sound and taste and the written word.
In short, our world is filled to the brim with loveliness, loveliness that Allah has allowed us to experience. Alhamdulilah.
I remember hearing once that people become their personalities after a while. After some indeterminate amount of time, the people you love become even more beautiful because of the happy memories you associate with them and because of how intimately you know them.
We all see beauty differently and there’s something beautiful out there for everyone.
That just makes me really happy. The thought that despite the fact that beauty isn’t necessarily appreciated unanimously, it is appreciated nonetheless. It seems almost more special for the exclusivity.
The most beautiful thing in the world, in my mind, is hope. And joy’s not far behind.
