Are You Something Beautiful?

By , SparkPeople Blogger

Perhaps you remember Brooke White from Season 7 of American Idol. This self proclaimed lover of anything "right brained" is now taking on acting in the latest Family Movie Night presentation.

Change of Plans is a "revealing story that shows how embracing life's unexpected events can open your heart and mind to new possibilities." This latest installment of better TV for families presented by Walmart and P& G will have its world premiere on FOX this Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 8 pm EST/7 pm CST. Although co-star Phylicia Rashad of Cosby Show fame caught my attention, what really put a smile on my face was Brooke's movie theme song video for Something Beautiful.

Being unique isn't always celebrated and recognizing inner beauty can be an operation. This video highlights how positive it can be to move to the beat of your own drum with laughter, joy and your own style especially when it makes you happy.

As this blog so apply puts it, "when everything is going wrong, something beautiful can make all the difference." However, beauty has become defined by how things look instead of what they are which is unfortunate. Consider these quotes:

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." ~Helen Keller

"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart." ~Kahlil Gibran

"It is not beauty that endears, it's love that makes us see beauty." ~Tolstoy

"Let the beauty we love be what we do." ~Rumi

As we start a new year, let us all commit to finding something beautiful within ourselves by learning to love who we are instead of focusing so much on how we look or the number on the scale.

What will you do this year so people see something beautiful about you?
