Long client day today, full of beautiful people finding their way out of bad situations.

Every work day I see people who are buried under years of trauma. Many of them have swallowed so much pain, they’ve mistaken hurtful experiences for their identity, believing themselves to be bad, broken or incapable. After the veil of adulthood is pulled away, a client’s work is almost always about repairing and integrating the child self.  

The greatest gift you can give anyone is to see beyond the garbage they carry and their accumulated pain, to see beyond anger and acting out, until you find the core of their being and the truth of their soul.  If you are looking for a gift this holiday season, try that one on for size. 

Red Grammer wrote a song that expresses this better than I ever could. Many thanks. 

See me beautiful.  Look for the best in me.

It’s what I really am and all I want to be.

It may take some time, it may be hard to find, but see me beautiful.


See me beautiful, each and every day.

Could you take a chance?

Could you find a way, to see me shining through in everything I do?

See me beautiful.

  1. Lovely idea, Karen – that’s probably one of the best gifts we could give as human beings. It would be nice if we could see the good, the beauty in ourselves, as well.

  2. Thank you for sharing on this, and the song you included is so beautiful. I will carry it around with me for a while as I do inspirational quotes and writings. xoxoxoxoEimyo

  3. This is great and so true. I love the song, it’s a perfect expression of what you’re saying.
