You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.
Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.
Itís true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. Thatís it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Donít give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!Ē -- Steve Maraboli

I stole this from a friend on FaceBook. Isn't this a fabulous way to handle people? I realize it wouldn't work for lots of crimes, but for many wrongdoings, I bet this is very effective, and certainly it is in relationships. So snatch up someone today and remind them of the good they do, the good they are. Affirm those you love. I bet it has a fantastic affect!!
I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.
When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days theyíll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.
The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.
But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.
They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he'd temporarily been disconnected: "I AM GOOD".

For those of you who haven't befriended me on FaceBook and may have missed this one, I had to share it here. It cracks me UP because it's SO me. Keep in mind, now, my dear, darling, big, strong, brave husband wakes up speaking in complete sentences, paragraphs even, and SINGING. I, on the other hand, cannot hear or speak more than two words upon waking without great difficulty. lol
