Real Beauty Sketches

This is a Gift for each of us. For me, a very well done video-adv. I cry of Joy and Compassion for myself and all the persons on this planet who don't see their Real Beauty:

Tania, thanks for sharing

Tania, thanks for sharing this! I saw it before and remember that it was a very profound example of our perception. Its always a great reminder to be kind to ourselves. There's no need to be so hard on ourselves each day. 

We are all fine, just the way we are!!

Hi Jen, believing and feeling

Hi Jen, believing and feeling we are all fine, the way we are is what we are really learning through this journey, isn't it? Thank you for your inspiration, if there is a place on this planet where we can learn we are all fine the way we are is this Community! With practice, we will get to believe and feel it elsewhere too XXXX

I really like that. I'd be interested to see how my own portrait would turn out.

Me too Lindsey!

This is very interesting though: after I watched it I found myself thinking about how I would describe myself if I had to, with all the little details about shapes, colours, nuances of my face. Then I tried to think of how a complete stranger would describe my face, what parts would be noticed first, more prominent, etc.
Results..
I would say that my forehead is extraordinary short, and my nose is big rounded and long; my mouth large and my lips very thin; I have a square-shaped face with very marked and vulgar lineaments.
A stranger would notice the colours at first: very dark eyes and hair on a pale skin; big eyes with arched black eyebrows; regular- shaped face, exotic intriguing lineaments, difficult to guess the nationality (could be Asian but also Caribbean or European); large lips with warm, happy, white smile.
Not sure which one is is 'right' or 'wrong', but it seems that a stranger would like my face more than I do..

I invite everyone to play this game: it's a very interesting way to discover some better awareness of our appearance. At least that was fun for me!

I'm going to try it too,

I'm going to try it too, Tania!

My own perception:

Small, round, face with chubby cheeks. Too pale and uneven skin tone with lots of zits. Almond shaped dark brown eyes shielded by sweet ass glasses. Prominent and hooked nose. Laugh lines above mouth that make me looked aged. Full lips but ugly teeth that are chipped and stained from years of purging.

A stranger:

Small, round face. Soft lines. Very pale, clear skin. Pretty brown eyes with extremely long lashes. Well-groomed eyebrows. Sweet ass spectacle frames. Rosy cheeks and cute dimples. Slightly hooked and pointed nose. Full lips. She is beautiful when she smiles.
(That's what I hear, anyway although I doubt I'll ever view it sans perfection).
