Just the Way You Are

My baby is beautiful. My mission as she grows up (because I know that it starts with me and her dad) is to show her how beautiful she is. I want to teach her that beauty comes from within – not just what’s on the outside. There’s beauty to be discovered and cherished in everything around us.

Side note: have you ever looked up the definition of the word beauty? As I write this I realize that I haven’t, so I just did.

beauty: the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind., whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).

Pretty good, huh?

For today’s edition of “I Dedicate” I’m featuring a song that sums up everything I was just trying to say. Bruno Mars is a new artist that’s making waves on the music scene. Let me tell you, this boy can saaaaaannnng! I love the clarity and richness of his voice. This song went #1 last year and was played over and over and over again on the radio (the video has been viewed almost 80 million times on YouTube…and I’m not kidding!). Thankfully I don’t listen to the radio much or else I wouldn’t be able to appreciate the song as much I do now.

My favorite lyric is: “If perfect’s what you’re searching for then just stay the same…” Love. It.

Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they’re not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She’s so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don’t see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she’d let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so sexy

She’s so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
I’d never ask you to change
If perfect is what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same

So don’t even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are
