Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

Is it because they are so confident in their own being that they don’t need the attention?

Have you ever met a person so beautiful that you just have to wonder at them?

They make you wonder why the world has not shined its light upon them to highlight them among the mundane. What is more, is this person is perfectly content with being “unnoticed.”

I have been privileged to know a few people like this.  Their humility is astounding and quite inspiring. It is like being around them, puts you in this surreal state of mind, that you are in the presence of greatness and they would never consider themselves in this light.

Pride can get in the way of things sometimes, like the beauty in said “things.”

The truly beautiful, seek not fame or notoriety.

They are content. They are content in their lives and in the ways they are making a difference in the world.  Sometimes, despite their humility, fame reaches them.

Those with subtle beauty don’t scream for attention, but instead are happy with who they are without having to manipulate others through using their physical beauty to feel that way.

Of course, the first person who comes to my mind is Mother Teresa.  She was not seeking attention, her love and actions flowed from deeply within her, and people saw her beauty, and people sought her out.

Beauty attracts attention and true beauty does not seek it out.

True Beauty does not stay hidden forever, though. Like the Snow Leopard, Mother Teresa (along with many other beautiful souls) was found out, and people flocked to her.

Beautiful things don’t ask for attention. 

Quiet confident people don’t seek attention.

An inspiring reminder for sure.  And a thought I will continue to reflect upon.

Beauty is not only about physical outside looks, it is about a beautiful soul, a poem that connects with a soul, an art that touches and moves a soul

Beauty like a subtle poem:

Her soul was too deep to explore

by those who always swam in the shallow end.
