Every day the view is different, and it has done the impossible - changed a night owl into a lark! I never thought I'd see the day when I would be excited to be awake before 6am watching the colors change each minute.
A couple of days ago it rained all day, and I thought at last I could capture a raging storm - but no, everything was white! I accepted the mysteries of the ocean, and caught up on more unpacking.
The next day was incredibly blue - without a cloud in the sky. Some would call this perfection, but I missed the changing shapes and colors. No matter how beautiful the tone of blue - it was just one color, with no contrast to engage my interest.
Last evening brought yet another different sunset, soft and delicate - with 50 shades of silver :) It proved to me that perfection is boring, while being unique will always be endlessly fascinating.
Be happy accepting yourself exactly as you are, being an individual in a sea of blue makes you special. Don't compare yourself to those who paint on inches of makeup before they'll be seen - they're not real or interesting. Being comfortable in your own skin is the best way to be - you don't need to hide behind a mask.
Picture someone who is completely relaxed, laughing out loud, and hugging everyone. Now picture someone too afraid to smile in case they form a wrinkle, brushing an invisible speck off their pristine, designer outfit. Who would you rather be?
When you can face anyone as you really are, without worrying about your perceived flaws and failings - you'll build the confidence to achieve anything you aim for. Self-confidence is the foundation for everything - lose your doubts, and embrace all your colors!
