Sometimes, you look up from what you’re doing, and you take measure of the people around you as a measure of yourself. And it’s not always good. Sometimes it’s even sobering.
But once in a while, you look up, and everyone within your reach is beautiful. Everyone makes sense, as themselves, as themselves within the context of you, and if you’re really, really lucky as themselves within the context of one another. Because ultimately, the only thing better than surrounding yourself with people that matter to you, is watching them matter to each other.
Finding beauty in others is easy, helping people find beauty within one another is not.
I miss you mug.
