What if your pillow could collect your dreams, and when you wake up, you could plug it into your computer and watch them over again

 

 

Think of the expression, “pain is beauty.” It’s usually used to describe the publicity stunts of celebrities whether it be plumping their lips with plastic, popping a diet pill every hour, or tanning their skin until it’s dried up, like a raisin. This is not beauty. This is the superficial and fake image created by modern society. Barbies. Airbrushed models. Body-builders. Eating Disorders. No, this is not beauty.

“Get Off The Scale! You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance. Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life. It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”
