Being around children as often as I am has been a true learning experience. I may not be a young woman, however, I am finding out many things from this beautiful little people.

Life is not boring to me, it is not mundane. It is full of wonder, pleasing smells, awesome colors, beautiful creatures, and breathtaking moments. Children know how to enjoy and appreciate life.

This is what I have learn from children: I think there is a secret to enjoying life more that most people overlook. A hidden way to feel so much more full every single day and it hides in its deceptive simplicity. Itís this: Love every single living thing you find and see them all through wondering eyes. Appreciate the details, notice the colors and textures and imagine you are seeing it for the very first time. See things as new.

What wonderful beauty is all around us.

WooHoo, it's Friday; the perfect day to start liking your how you look! It really does not matter what size you are. So please stop listening to the media telling you that you have to be a size 0. Your dress size does determine who you are. Do not let them take the joy out of your life. What they tell you and say is not the truth. They have a hidden agenda which does not care about anyone but their wallet. Yet, we give the media so much power. It's time stop.

Now is the time to be happy with how you look. After all, you are God's masterpiece--100% made by Him. Now how can you NOT be beautiful? How can you NOT like how you look? God does not make anything unattractive.

I want you to know that you really are beautiful. You brighten my day and make me feel that I am special. Your inner beauty touches my life and I am so much better because of it. This my friend is what real beauty is, not a being a size 0.

I sincerely hope you are smiling and enjoying this wonderful Wednesday!

Donít take a single day for granted. Take moments to appreciate what you have and what you have done already before continuing on to the next step in life. We have so much, yet do not take time to notice what we do have.

It is a blessing to be alive each day. Make it a great day for yourself and everyone around you! And most of all, make your Heavenly Father smile!
