Beauty comes from being strong.
If you are strong you aren't bothered by the differences of others,
You resist peer pressure
And choose your own destiny.
If you are strong you know not to fuss
Because que será, será; what will be, will be.
When you are strong you know it's ok to cry
Because you have your own shoulder to lean on.
It takes strength to see all of the beauty through the pain.
Once you start seeing beauty everywhere you look,
You have become beautiful yourself.

I have this poem posted above my bed and I read it anytime I am feeling blue. It never fails to fill me with energy and give me strength by reminding me that I live in a world overflowing with infinite beauty. By opening my eyes to the beauty surrounding me, I am able to find serenity and strength within myself.
