You Are So Beautiful To Me

I was attending a Fundraiser Gala Celebration for a school. Now, I've recently lost weight and felt good about how I looked in my outfit ... which I hadn't felt in years!
Once I got to the event, many people where telling me how wonderful I looked. To be honest, it felt great to hear that because I worked really hard to look and feel better.
Then, all of a sudden, I was thinking how I wished someone had given nice compliments last year when I was heavier. I did look nice then too, I had a nice outfit, pretty hair and carried myself nicely...
So I started looking around the room for people I knew that were maybe not what was considered "thin" and I went up to them and told them how nice they looked and that I loved their outfits ... they were true comments and came from my heart.
Oh, you should have seen their faces light up because I took time to notice them and let them know they are just as pretty as anyone else there! I think it'll make us closer because they know I care.
We should all look for something nice to say to one another to lift one's spirits.
I too, am on a roller coster with weight loss and gain....I have finally accepted myself as is....I try not to be influenced with what society and others feel is beautiful....its what I feel inside....its what type of person one is....I loved the fact that you are compassionate and thought to compliment others....you are you...whether heavy or thin and beautiful and so is everyone else. Proud to count you as a group friend and continue to spread your warmth, love and kindness....YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE EVERY DAY!
