Sometimes, all we need to hear is that it is okay. So, darling, I just want you to know that it is okay; it is okay that you had a bad day. It is okay that you picked up some old habits. It is okay that you had dark thoughts again. It is okay that you are hurting. It is okay that you made that mistake. It is okay. I know it is easy to be hard on yourself, but you have to remember that you are still healing. Be gentle. Be kind. Breathe. It is okay.
Decorated by fresh snow, Yosemite National Park in California really sparkles. Beauty is all around us. Wishing you peace, joy and time in the great outdoors this season. We are truly grateful for a chance to share in wonder and discovery on public lands with you all. From us at Interior, Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Video courtesy Mark Bouldoukian.
You do not have to look beautiful while walking down the streets. You do not have to look beautiful while eating. You do not have to look beautiful while talking. You do not have to look beautiful while laughing. While doing sports. While having sex. While singing. While dancing. You were not born to look beautiful, my love. You are here to enjoy, to feel, to live. There is no point in worrying what you look like when you are doing things you actually enjoy because that joy will be taken away by the fear of not looking good enough. Again, it is not your purpose to look beautiful, darling. Your purpose is to fall in love with life, to laugh until your belly hurts, to express your feelings, to sing from the top of your lungs, to dance as silly as you want to - without worrying about your appearance. For all that matters is that your soul is beautiful and happy.
