Pretty In Pink | Beauty

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
― Coco Chanel







Skirt: Old Navy
Sweater: Reitmans
Shoes: Le Chateau 


There is beauty in all things. Even in the ugliest of things, if you look just hard enough, there is beauty hidden in there somewhere. Keep looking. Don't let the ugly of the world change your perspective of your life. There is beauty hidden in there. Deep down, in the crevices of the situation. Some new form of life is being formed. Because, there is beauty somewhere in there. Even when the horizon is filled with dark clouds and pouring rain, there will come a moment where the rain must cease and the sun must peak through the clouds. And if you've turned your head or lowered your face into your hands, you'll miss it. The beauty that comes right after a great big thunderstorm. A promise will appear, waves of color from one end to another, as far as you can see. But if you're too busy looking at the darkness of the clouds, or have run inside for some shelter, you'll miss the beauty. The beauty peaking through the clouds. It might not be easy to stand in the rain, it might bring on sickness, fever and a cold, but that's nothing a coat and umbrella can't fix. If you just believe, with all of your heart, there is beauty somewhere in the corner of that situation. 

There is beauty in all things. Even in the hardest moments of your life, if you just look hard enough, there is beauty in there somewhere. Stay strong. Don't let the heartbreak build walls around your heart, life isn't about safety, but about the adventures you're willing to take. Behind that curtain that you've put up so nobody can hurt you again, there is a someone looking for a person just like you. They are ready to bulldoze through those walls, but if you're hiding behind the curtain, you won't see them working hard to make their way to you. There is beauty in this heartbreak, that will form you to be a better lover and friend. Where something has been burned down, there is something ready to grow. There is beauty in there somewhere, in the deepness of your pain, something beautiful is about to spring up. Like a flower in the spring. Ready to show it's beautiful petals after being covered in snow. Because there is beauty in all things.

And even if you can't see it, I see you. And you are as beautiful as that flower. And if you'll hold on for a little while, stay strong for a bit longer, you'll be the beauty in the midst of the ugly. Because no matter what you go through, if you don't let it ruin you but change you into exactly who you want to be, than every ugly thing has served a beautiful purpose. To make a beautiful you. And believe me, just like that flower, you are beautiful. And one day you'll be that beautiful thing, that someone holds on to when they believe that there is beauty in all things.
                                                                                                                     Sincerely,
                                                                                                                                R.

  6. I love your sweater and how you paired it with black. Anything paired with black looks elegant in my book. You write so well, Ruth. You should do it more often. :)
