A Beautiful Soul: Gooey Post 1

I was driving back from downtown the other day for a photo shoot (do I sound glamourous and beyond cool? Good! Let the facade live on) and I started thinking to myself. One of the people I work with is a large man, and is always cracking jokes about his size. He's a very nice guy, and was convinced he was unattractive.

I began to wonder if there are some people that simply can see into other's souls. Not like the Ghost Whisperer or anything like that- but I truly believe for some people, looks really don't matter. Growing up, I never chose friends based on their physical appearance or fashion sense. Of course I noticed things, like everyone does, but I never let that color my opinion of them. For some people, looks are everything. They won't date someone unless they're cute or attractive. An average or overweight person is disgusting to them- they all want a George Clooney look alike with a heart of gold. For as long as I can remember, I have never understood this. In fact, I've always been suspicious of very attractive people. Just as judgemental as they are towards others, I assume the pretty, popular people were really evil demons stuffed inside an outer shell.

However, I truly believe that there are some people that can look at someone and see them for them. They don't see the pimples, the five extra pounds, the extra toe. As much as I would like to brag and say that it was me, I'm not going to. There's only so much of my own horn that I can toot.

Maybe we should all work on that a little more. Maybe things would be different if we looked into people's hearts instead of at their overly plumped lips. I gurantee- things would be a lot more interesting.
