What Is Beautiful To Me by Katharine Grubb

 

What is beautiful?

 It is beautiful to stop and take deep breaths. To understand that your breathing not just helps your body but it also calms you down. Your deep breaths soothe your mind. Deep breaths free you up to think and act clearly. Deep breathing is a pacifier, a soother, a psychological binky.  You can wrap yourself up in your own breaths and rest deeply. You can breathe the toxins out of your body. You can breathe out the bad thoughts and the invasive poisons.

What is beautiful?

It is beautiful to choose to be free and walk in truth. What’s beautiful in the journey of truth is to see all of the people join you. They want to hold your hand and lead you along. They want what you’ve got. It is beautiful to be winsome and lovely, to be calm and kind. It is beautiful that these things are so much better for us than almost anything else.

What is beautiful?

It is beautiful when words inspires new life and new hope. It is hard to understand that something new and fresh and hopeful can come out of such suffering. How can that be? How can it be that the suffering produces so much beauty?

Now with every step that I see this beauty unfolding around me, I have to make a choice.

Do I keep going with more and more beauty or do I stop and listen to the voices that are behind me?  The jarring voices behind me are filled of accusations. They are blind to the beauty around me. They are blind to the richness in hopeful words.  They’d rather find comfort in their mockery and hatred than look up to see beauty.

Beauty is looking at all my scars and knowing where they came from and getting up and fighting anyway.  Katharine GrubbWhat is beautiful?

Beauty is looking at all my scars and knowing where they came from and getting up and fighting anyway. Beauty is choosing to live my life away from anyone who harms me emotionally. Beauty is knowing my preferences and my passions and my talents and my ideas and working hard to put them into action. Beauty is speaking only good things about others. Beauty is defending the boundaries of others.

This is why I write. I write because the fight for beauty is worth it.
