Please, please take a few minutes today and watch this video. Katie Makkai defines “pretty” in such a bone-shaking way that I couldn’t move for three minutes and twenty-seven seconds.
I don’t know about you, but I find myself traipsing through life sometimes wondering, will I be pretty, will I be pretty? And then Katie Makkai lays it out on the table and I agree: NO. I will NOT be “pretty.” I will be me, and I will be wonderful.
Look up, you in the back there. Yes, you. You are NOT merely pretty. You are NOT a copied, mass-produced, glossy magazine-cover photo-shopped image. You are original. You are the only you there is.
