Theory of Beauty 

 “I have this theory, that if we’re told we’re bad; then that’s the only idea we’ll ever have. Maybe if we are surrounded in beauty, one day we will become what we see.” Jewel “I’m Sensitive”

Throughout high school, college, and a few years after, I was obsessed with Jewel. I still kind of am, but I often forget she exists. Then I remember, and I go on Jewel listening binges. 

I love the lyrics to most of her songs, but “I’m Sensitive” has always stood out to me. Maybe because I am much more sensitive and easily wounded than I try to let on, but I also just love this idea of surrounding yourself with beauty. Let’s take that a step further- I want to help create that beauty for other people. 

How can I do that? Well… I could probably start with my attitude. I’m still working on that whole pessimism thing. And, let’s be honest, I should work on not being a bitch half the time! 

I think that seeing beauty in life is often just taking the time to slow down and appreciate. I feel life is beautiful when I spend time with those I love, go on a long walk, or go try something new. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

  2. Attitude, that’s something we all use as a guard. It helps get rid of the crap that people use to knock us down. Being a bitch, I do that so good with a smile as big as my wants!
    Be true to YOU!

  3. LOVE THIS!!! I’m inspired!! Although you are NOT a bitch haha, but I understand the whole idea that we create our own experience/environment, and it’s really hard to do that in a positive way. Which is why I try to laugh a lot, even if it’s in a pessimistic way 😉
