Default "I'm Beautiful Inside", says the For Sale Sign...

Where I live, it seems there is no shortage of homes for sale. There is one in particular that I drive by daily. It's an average looking home. Part brick. Part clapboard. Two-story, decent lot with trees. It's an older home to be sure, but looks to be in good shape.

The For Sale sign has a little topper on it that says "I'm Beautiful Inside".

Many are the days that I feel I have to wear that same sign. As if I need to justify my existance to society, just as the Real Estate agent feels it's necessary to justify this home's worthiness to prospective buyers. As if the house just isn't good enough as it is because it's not one of those shiny new McMansions...

Every time I see that sign, it just sort of hits me right *there*... if you know what I mean...

That hits me right *there* too. I can relate to needing to wear a sign that says Beautiful Inside. Because so often people lose sight of the whole worth of a person. We are more than just an outside shell. We are a whole package and it would be nice to be looked at as such. I am going to tell myself I am Beautiful Inside even if others don't care to come close enough to see it too.

Thanks for sharing.
