1. What one thing did you do better today?
I thought about the difference between feeling beautiful and feeling sexy. What defines it for me, how do I perceive it in others and what puts me in a moment of feeling good in my skin. I cannot say I have any definitions to offer at hand. However I believe it is the feeling good in my own skin that is most crucial for either feeling beautiful or feeling sexy.
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
I wouldn’t say better in particular, however I did have two interesting conversations on this topic. It felt good to open up and compare views. To open up to new ways of thinking, new ideas, new perceptions. It feels good to rethink and reevaluate view on both self and others.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
As most of realisations that happened are described above, I decided to instead use this space to share a wonderful poem by @atticuspoetry on the topic of beauty.
Have you ever met a person
who at first glance
you weren’t attracted to
but then they talk
and with every word
they become more beautiful
until you can’t believe
there was a moment
you didn’t think they were.
