You Are Beautiful!


"Get off the scale!

You are beautiful.  Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness and success, is immeasurable.  Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale!  I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are.  I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it.  I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor and contagious smile.  Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverence when challenged in life.

It's true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity.  That's it.  It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength or love.  Don't give the scale more power than it has earned.  Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life.  You are beautiful!"

About Nancy Polanski
I live in Western New York. I'm retired, after working for 30 years in the Microbiology Labs at our county hospital. My time now is spent mostly with the Karen refugee population in Buffalo, advocating for them, teaching, helping and enjoying them. I've twice traveled to their camps in Thailand and experienced their culture. It seems they have taught me more about life than I have taught them.
