To be beautiful means to be yourself.  You don’t need to be accepted by others.  You need to accept yourself” 

-Thich Nhat Hanh

That means accepting where you are with grace and honor and self love.  It doesn’t mean we are perfect or even the person we want to grow into being.  It means we accept who we are now – embracing all the perfectly wonderful imperfections that arise from the human condition.  We are not complacent or willing to settle for less than our greatest expression of ourselves, but we are also not self-condemning, self-denying, or self-degrading.  We are beautiful expressions of divine love on an incredible journey of uncovering and becoming all that we are capable of and more.  It begins within.  A journey into the heart of self acceptance.  – Jan Thrasher
