What I learned from a Snowflake...

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Do you remember as a child learning that no two snowflakes were alike? I have always thought this to be completely amazing. How many different patterns of a snowflake could there possibly be? REALLY! How do they know that no two are alike? I doubt that it would be possible to compare millions and millions of snowflakes to insure that no two were alike. Any way... back to my point...

When I got home from work yesterday, it was snowing pretty heavily and the big fluffy flakes were sticking to my navy blue coat. You could really see the detail and the beauty in each tiny flake. So, with the above doubts in my mind, I was determined to find two that were the same. Nope, couldn't do it! But, during my investigation, I discovered also that there was not one single snow flake that didn't have some type of "flaw". Either a missing "branch" or one side larger than the other, etc. BUT they were ALL beautiful. Each one, even with it's flaws was beautiful in it's own way. So, what did I do? Well, I automatically connected this to people... every person has some type of flaw, but we are all beautiful. With the snow flakes, I was able to look past the flaws and see the beauty. Now, I am planning to take this "knowledge" and apply it to the people in my life as well. I will remember to look past the flaws and see the beauty, not only in others, but also in myself. We are ALL beautiful in our own unique ways.

So, friends, look past the flaws and search for the beauty in others and in yourselves. YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL PERSON and I thank you for being a part of my journey and my life!

    Great blog and life lesson learned. It is so easy to focus on the flaws and blow them out of proportion. Blessings as you look for the beauty in others.
