Beautiful People Do Not Just Happen

I recently discovered this beautiful quote from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, when I shared it over Facebook and LinkedIn it received an uncommonly high number of responses.  Will you share something about a beautiful person you know that became more extraordinary when they came out of the depths?  Or share how you have been transformed?

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

• Anyone can be a leader.
• Everyone knows something that the rest of us don’t.
• We all need to leave our workplaces, communities, nation and world – better than we found them.

Those beliefs caused her to instigate change from every position she ever had and continually provided opportunities to lead system-wide change from the middle and the edge of organizations.

Her faith and my firm belief that leaders need to walk their talk were the reasons she agreed to move to a part of the world that she once feared. As an expat she embraced daily opportunities to meet and learn from people that represent the nations in our world.

  1. I have been blessed to encounter many beautiful people in my life. Men who have “stepped up” when their wives dealt with long-term illness. Women who have sacrificed so much for their homes and families. Kids who have experienced the harsh realities of life much earlier than this mother’s heart believes they should have. Individuals who have waited, in anticipation, for God’s Best for them. People who have suffered unutterable loss or deprivation, and yet been able to still take joy in the world around them.

    Beauty is definitely more than skin-deep. It’s the sum of the life experiences that mold and shape us, and what we do with it. My own transformation over the past few years has been a hard one at times, and yet I’m able to use it to share a message of hope and restoration with my readers and audiences. It’s all a matter of how we choose to view what’s happened. Life circumstances can become anchors or propellers. The choice is ours. In my case, I choose to believe that The Best is Yet to Come.
