Removing the Veil


All of us have a beauty within us. Some of us bury it so deeply that it never has the chance to see the light of day. It is so vulnerable to unveil that beauty. This girl, with all the layers showing through her skin and hair, reminded me of unveiling the beauty within. It's so scary to do that. It's even dangerous to do that sometimes. Some will attack your beauty, which is why so many of us hide all the layers, the pain, the joy. It's a scary thing to be vulnerable - to let you deep down beauty shine through. Yet, that's exactly what we need to do to share our gifts of beauty, love and compassion within us.


“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
