How Beautiful You Are

I guess I'm just in one of those good-guy moods today.

I know, right?  Whodathunk?

In reality, I think I'm really anxious over a few other things - holidays included. So maybe I'm looking for solace in other venues.

Or maybe, just MAYBE, deep down, I'm just a real softie.

....it could happen!

Anyways, I saw this floating around a week or so ago. A high school video project where the filmmaker approached folks she knew - and didn't - to tell them they were beautiful. And you get to see the change in their reaction.

Most of the video is positive. One is extremely awkward......and very defensive. I would say the common thread is disbelief, in that they themselves don't think they are beautiful or that someone else does. Or that someone would actually say it without an agenda.

And of course, there was an agenda: a video project; a grade. That doesn't necessarily make it less genuine.

Still it is nice. It is a good five minute distraction. And sometimes that is all you need.

Now I'm feeling like a big old softie, too.

Sorry Blobby, I'm only commenting on blogs where I find the writers beautiful today.
