If you worry and fret a lot. It shows on your face.
If you are content, joyful, and have an inner peace. It shows in your face.
What you feel inside of your heart and soul doesn’t just stay inside. It comes out in your eyes, in how you hold your posture, or carry your head. In the way your lips move and the lines along your forehead. Yes, it shows in your face.
I can see it in others. I have seen it in myself. It’s why that question comes up about something looking different in someone else. That one thing you can’t seem to put your finger on. It’s because they look the same. But not. They ARE the same. But not. What we feel and go through internally, shows up outwardly.
It’s why a pregnant mother or a woman in love has a certain glow about her. It’s why when someone has lost someone dear to them – they can smile and yet you still see sadness in their eyes. It shows. Always.
We can hide lots of things. But there is still something not quite placeable to others that shows up on our face. Worry. Stress. Thankfulness. Relief. Apathy.
What shows up on your face? What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror? Time can deepen those marks and creases.
A face truly is a window into the heart and soul of a person. I pray that the view my face gives is one of joy, thankfulness, and love.
