It’s The Soul That Matters

    c.25 three-legged catHave you ever succumbed to the allure of beautiful, wax- coated fruits and vegetables that glisten in the supermarkets, beckoning you to “buy me,” only to discover later that the flavor — such as it is, is somewhat lacking?

    Have you also noticed, if you are able to get to a farmer’s market, the produce will not necessarily be pretty, and you most definitely won’t find wax-coating, but you have an excellent chance of finding flavor — the kind that will have your taste buds jumping for joy?

    There is something to be said for beauty … yes, it is beautiful. But does it have substance? The waxed fruit is a sight to behold, and yet it often lacks flavor. The farmer’s market fruit is often not as beautiful, though usually abundant in flavor.

    Do you focus on and give yourself credit for your attributes, your strengths, and your achievements (substance), or do you berate yourself for perhaps being shorter than ideal, heavier than ideal, or less busty and buff than ideal (facade)?

    When you’ve had a really rough day and just want the peace of spirit that comes from the unconditional love of an animal, do you care if the cat purring and cuddling in your lap or the dog who lights up when you walk in the door, has three-paws?

    When your back is against the wall, and your world is falling apart, do you really care whether those who come to your aid are of a certain height, weight, or shape?

    I believe Auntie Boobie said it best when she said, “It’s the soul that matters, not the size or shape of the body.”

    Thank you for your comment. I try to remember Auntie Boobie’s words of wisdom when my Inner Critic starts up, sometimes I’m more successful than others.
