Well, no I'm not, not really anyway. Let me try to explain this better.
I love to read, I really do, but once in a while I get so cot up by the same plots over and over again, or I'm forced to read some book I really don't like, or I have sooo many books on my list that the pressure feels like an obligation and I get to the point of asking my self "Why do I like to read?"
Because of Beauty from the story Beauty and The Beast.
I'm the oldest of four children and when I was a little girl I went to the movies to see this story whit my mom. I was 7yo or so and I fell in love with it.
I remember getting home with this amazing feeling inside of me, a feeling like I could change the world. That night when my little sister was in bed I told the story to her and it became our little routine. Me telling her stories and the look on her eyes always made my heart sing. That was when I became a reader and a story teller.
Ok, but this doesn't explain my initial statement, right? Well, let me be clearer about it.
Beauty is this girl that lives inside the books that she reads and expects more of life than just find a man, marry and have kids. She loves to read and lives her life in a privet way kipping her stuff to herself. People think she is strange and crazy just like her dad.
Aside from the obvious beauty (her name says it all LoL) I'm like that in many ways. I don't get cot up in relationship drama and you wont see me pouring my heart out to someone a barely know like most of the girls I know do. Really, people are that needy sometimes. Once I met this girl and she told me about her whole life while we were waiting for the bus. I mean, I could be a psycho for all she knew and still she just told me everything about her life. And I'm the one that people call crazy? Yep,,
The most people I know, girls specially, spend a big part of their day worrying about little things and a bunch of she says, he says that just don't make sense to me at all. Is like they are so cot up in their little world of soup opera that they can see what's around them.
Ok, I realize that this made me sound arrogant and snob, but I swear I'm not. Really.
You can ask anyone. They will say I'm a half full glass type of girl and always see the sunny side of every situation. Oh, and they'll say I'm crazy too, but this comes with the package LoL.
So, we are back to the beginning. I'm Beauty. I see the magical side of things and try to do my best in showing that side to everyone around me cose life, real life sucks. Sorry, I don't mean to be skeptical or cynical, but real life sucks. People die and are mean to each other for no reason at all and this type of stuff gets to me.
When someone is feeling sad and terrible about a problem that can't be fixed by anyone else but themselves the only thing you can do is show the beauty and the sparkly side of life. Give something worth smiling for.
If you remember Beauty's story, she was the one that gave hope to the Beast and everyone else. She showed how life could be beautiful even if you were a beast and bla, bla, bla,,,
So, when I feel like the world is especially suckie I go back to the basics and watch the movie Beauty and the Beast.
This story has it all: selfless love, hope, internal beauty over external beauty, free will, incentive to reading and I believe with all my heart that every kid should watch it at least once.
No, Disney didn't pay me to say this. LoL. I'm just being honest and showing my really dorky side that loves Disney Movies and Disney Series and Cartoon LoL
Since Xmas is near and the feeling of goodness is in the air I want to ask to every one of you fabulous people
Why do you like to read? What makes life magical to you? What makes you see the light when you are trapped in the dark? What makes your heart sing when all you want to do is cry?
To know the answer to these questions is to know what makes life worth being liven.
Ok, I went over the top with my babbling LoL Sorry.
I'll leave you now and wish you all a fabulous week!
Beauty, ops, I mean, Lila
