Daily Thoughts: Beautiful People Are Everywhere

1477d1ccfbf3247907d771656fd91ba5Whenever I walk on the pavement of the city streets, I see the strangers walk past me, and know there is so much history in their lives. But, to only catch a glimpse of their faces, there are so many different feelings an expression can give. A sudden laugh can make you smile, a baby staring at you or a sad face on the bus. Beautiful people are everywhere. It’s a certain rawness, of being seen caught unguarded, unprepared and unaware walking on the streets. Catching someone in mid-thought within their own life. Some look terribly sad and other’s look calm. The way people hold themselves. There is no screen, online image or editing. Just seen through our own lens. It makes one wonder what our perception of beauty would be if we were blind.

No matter what pictures we see on the billboards, on the TV screen or in the magazine, there is a natural beauty within many people. Seeing with our own eyes, rather than images that have been altered to waver our perception of beauty. It’s easy to judge other’s by the way they look and what they wear in the first instance. However, I find that the more we talk to someone, the more beautiful they can be (or the less). The simple things, from opening the door for someone, helping a stranger or expressing gratitude are the small beautiful things that people express.

  1. I so agree with you. Everyone around us, no matter how distant they may seem, have their history and stories and they can be so different from us…or so similar. As such, we shouldn’t judge by the way they look but perhaps accept them for who they are.

    “the more we talk to someone, the more beautiful they can be (or the less)”. I really like how you put it. When we talk to someone, we learn more about them and where they are coming from. When we talk to someone, it’s also a chance for us to get a feel of their body language and emotions, and thus gain a sense whether we can connect with them or not.

    1. Thank you for your comment. I feel that it’s much easier for people to judge what they see on the surface, but there is always much more in each person’s lives then we can understand. As someone who is more introverted, I always feel that most people don’t get the chance to see the ‘other sides’ of me. I’m glad you know what I mean – we see people everyday, but it’s not until we talk to them more, we get a sense of who they are.

  2. Lovely post, it reminds me of that quote “be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” I think the beauty of people lies in their life experiences. You are so right that we should talk to people more, and learn about them and their lives.
