Beautiful. . . .


And show the world the love in your heart. . . 

You've got to get up every morning
With a smile on your face
And show the world the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful, as you feel

People are mistreated wherever you look.
There will be instances where you have either been the person who has been mistreated, you have witnessed others being mistreated by others, or you are the person responsible for mistreating others.  I wonder sometimes whether we are truly conscious of the impact of our actions on others - not just on people in our immediate vicinity and people we might know, but on others that we might never get to meet, but who we might impact in some way, if our actions have a kind of domino or ripple effect.

Waiting at the station with the workday wind a-blowing
I've got nothing to do but watch the passers by
Mirrored in their faces I see frustration growing
And they don't see it showing, why do I?

If you take the time to observe people and take notice of them, you learn so much about what's happening - not just to them, but also what they are attracting into their own lives.  Do you wonder about the levels of frustration that people express in their daily lives?  It's probably something that I have been learning to refine over time, throughout the many phases of learning cycles that I have, particularly when I think about interactions with people.  You have to wonder if the frustration stems from things they have created, or that people have done to them.  In most cases, I have seen that frustration grows from being planted in situations that people cannot control or feel that they are valued in.  You might be witnessing people who are being rewarded for things that they haven't earned and you feel that life is passing you by.  If you're seeing frustration mirrored in their faces, is that because it's being mirrored from your own face?

You've got to get up every morning
With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better 
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful as you feel

When you get up in the morning, it is easy to think about the problems that you have, the issues that continue to plague your life. When you have to get up in the morning, are you conscious of your intentions for the day - what things are you looking forward to achieving?  What challenges do you know that you're facing?  Do you have things in hand and know what to do to minimise any distractions or interactions with people who will wipe that smile off your face?  How else will you be able to show the world all the love in your heart - if you don't first acknowledge love for yourself?  It is important to feel good - about yourself, about your life, about the things that matter the most to you.  Only then will you be able to feel as beautiful as you feel. So pay attention to how you feel.



I have often asked myself the reason for the sadness
In a world where tears are just a lullaby
If there's any answer, maybe love can end the madness 
Maybe not, oh, but we can only try

We all have various reasons for being sad.  It is how we choose to let that sadness become part of the fabric of our lives that allow us to think - are we able to move through this sadness, push past it or let it overwhelm us.  Sometimes there is a thin line between madness and sadness.  It's sometimes hard to figure out which one comes first if we choose to look at these emotions as belonging to some sort of emotional cycle.  I guess it depends on what emotional cycle you are currently processing in any given situation.  In any case, we need to be open to our feelings, know how to express them in healthy ways, and know what we don't know about them.  I guess we can only try. 

You've got to get up every morning
With a smile in your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful as you feel

I hope that if you are mistreating others, that you understand what needs to happen so that you treat others better.  If you choose to continue doing this, then you should actually stop.  You need to know that if you continue to persist, then you will only attract opportunities to feel what it is like to be mistreated yourself.  You might scoff and think, no, not me.  I am untouchable, I am invincible.  But mark my words, everyone eventually gets their comeuppance.  It might take time, but just know that you will be found out, you will pay for mistreating others.  Why?  Because those people deserve a chance to shine and to never diminish who they are, to make you feel better.  I mean, isn't this why you oppress them in the first place?  Once they realise that you have no power over them, they will know.

I hope that if you are being mistreated, that people are going to treat you better.

You don't need to be a victim in your life.  You don't need to be someone that you're not.  It's all a question really of how well do you know yourself?  Who do you want to be?  What do you want to do with your life?  Do you know how beautiful you actually are?  Get feeling good already, get feeling good today. All you need to know is that you're beautiful, you're beautiful as you feel. . .
