I finally had some downtime today and am catching up on the shows on my Tivo. One of them is the Smash pilot. I love singing/musical shows so I was eager to watch it and I loved Katherine McPhee's rendition of Beautiful in it! I wish I could find a better video of the actual scene which isn't all promo for NBC so this one is the next best thing.
As I listened to the lyrics, it felt very appropriate as a follow up to my Hope post. So take this as a public service announcement for the week. We all have days we feel low and unsure of ourselves and people say nasty things. Where we want to hide under the covers and shut ourselves from the world. Especially if there are a lot of things going on in life.
But I think that as long as we remember that we are beautiful (inside and out) and that every day is wonderful, we're good. The small things really make all the difference.
The following lyrics are just part of the song...the ones that seemed to speak to me.
Every day is so wonderful...
Now and then I get insecure
From all the pain, feel so ashamed...
I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down...
To all your friends you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Tryin' hard to fill the emptiness, the piece is gone
Left the puzzle undone, ain't that the way it is?...
'Cause you are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh no
So don't you bring me down today
We are beautiful in every single way. Having a tough day? Just remember that. And have some m&m's and a cup of tea as a treat.
I'll be back with some stitching stuff over the weekend.
Until next time...
