Reverb10: Beautifully Different

December 8th, 2010

December 8 – Beautifully Different.

Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful.

My teeth are way off-center.

I have a boy’s name, which no one can ever pronounce or spell on the first try.

I come from a place utterly unlike anywhere else.

I have insanely long legs.

I’m the daughter and granddaughter of poets.

I have a scar on my chin from a wart that grew there when I was nine years old.

I also have a mole-like spot on my rib cage that a doctor told me is a supernumerary nipple (that’s right–Marky Mark, Lily Allen, Carrie Underwood, Ann Boleyn and me–all the cool kids have one).  I would never have survived the witch trials.

Sadly, I have no webbing between my toes.

But it would be awesome if I did.

    This post made me smile. I too have a scar on my chin (snap!) and your name (I am saying it in my head the way I think it’s meant to be pronounced) is beautiful.

  4. I’m a cool kid too!
