Pretty Is How You Feel!
It is not whether I look pretty, but whether I feel pretty!
I have this wonderful friend (not yet a committed relationship – I wish!) but something is growing between us and he gave me a whole new perspective on Life.
I regard myself as a pretty woman and we were dating on and off for nearly a month when “That Time Of The Month” hit me in full force as usual! We had a dancing date and whatever I tried, I did not look pretty for myself and when he arrived to pick me up I felt and looked lousy for myself. After confiding in him and telling him I did not feel pretty he changed my entire lookout and attitude.
That day he taught me that prettiness is not how you look but how you feel. The fact that I had the “common female disease” that time made me more pretty for him because he was sure I was 100% woman! Isn’t this nice of him?
Then he wrote the following words down of the song from West Side Story and told me to have it always with me:
I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me today
I feel charming
Oh so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real
See the pretty girl in that mirror there?
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!
I dried my tears and we went to the dance. I walked into that hall as the prettiest girl in the world because I felt pretty!
Now you know what I meant by saying I wish he could start to be more committed with our relationship – he is wonderful!!
It was the best evening of my life; in spite of “That Time Of The Month”!!
