Beautiful Is Tag | Tag Tuesday

The ever amazing Kiya of Flawed Silence created this tag and nominated me. And I am honored to be able to spread this inspiring tag further.

Before I start, I want you all to go read on this post by Kiya. Here, she shares her purpose for creating the tag and it’s an amazing purpose.

Beautiful Is Tag | Probably one of my longest tag post evar. But I don’t regret it. This one’s BEAUTIFUL you guys!

Rules:

1) Link back to Kiya’s post in your introduction so the awesome peeps you nominate can get a brief context of the tag (and be inspired by her wonderful words <3)

2) Thank your nominee. Manners people ;P

3) Answer the questions

(Gotta be honest, though. These were some tough questions to answer. And I thought Elm’s Uniquely Me Tag was tough. But they’re both sooo good! I can now conclude that the best tags are those that are tough to create. Because they require you to dig deep into yourself and look for the great qualities that you have. Which is why these tags are so amazing since we all need the reminder sometimes. And  the best person to remind us is ourselves, yeah?)

4) Tag anyone – no limit on numbers

5) Let them know.

6) Tag it as beautifulistag so Kiya can read them all!

7) Comment I am beautiful at the end of your post (because you are :))

8) SMILE BEAUTIFUL

Questions:

What is your definition of beautiful?

For me, beautiful lies beyond outside aesthetics. Beautiful is anything that can move the heart and rock the beholder’s core.

What do you find beauty in? (Abstract or concrete ideas)

I find beauty in many things, actually. Ever since last year, I’ve decided to find beauty in the things around me. It was a little exercise that I created for myself amidst all the horrible things that happened in 2016.

I see beauty in visual artworks all the time. I see it in words woven with the heart by amazing wordsmiths. And in the most unexpected places. Like I do this thing when I’m in public transport and I’m listening music; I’d watch all the people walking in the sidewalk and I’d try to look for someone who would synchronize with the beat of the song I’m listening to. It’s fun 😀

When you think of beautiful, what are the first four things or words that come to mind?

The sky, the world, colors, and love.

A song, quote or lyric that you think sums up beauty perfectly

My mind, thinking it’s hilarious, immediately thought of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” And I’m like “That doesn’t sum beauty up perfectly! Honestly, brain!”

I honestly can’t think of any song that could sum up beauty perfectly but “The Transformation” by the Bulgarian Women’s Choir which is featured in Brother Bear and Joe Hisaishi’s “One Summer’s Day” from Spirited Away are close. It’s not the lyrics because the former is in Inuit and the latter is a soundtrack. But more on their melodies.

Tell us seven reasons why you are beautiful

❤ I try to see the good things while acknowledging the bad

❤ I try to be a decent person

❤ I can make up bizarre back stories from things I passed by

❤ I find life lessons in the most unexpected, eyebrow-raising places. You know, like Scrabble. I remember back when this was Plethoric Thoughts, I used to write about something random and I’ll share the lesson I learned from it. But I had a content purge a while back so I’m not sure if they’re still around.

❤ I am a walking contradiction. I can be messy and want order, I can be pessimistic and optimistic. And that’s okay because then I can try to understand the different perspectives of things 🙂

❤ I am the daughter of the village chief – just kidding. I’m listening to music and that line came out just as I was about to write “I am”. On that note, my humor comes out randomly; that’s another reason.

❤ I love many things. Ultimate fangirl, remember?

Tell us about a time someone made you feel beautiful. How did it make you feel?

Okay. This one’s kinda unusual. For me physical compliments only touch the surface. Whenever someone tell me, “You’re pretty” or “You look good” or some other, I’m just like “Oh. Thanks haha!” But when someone compliments my work, that’s what flatters me. (I mean, Kiya, why do you think I always melt with your multi-compliments?? :D)

I remember a classmate of mine in high school saw me doodling on something with a pen and he said, “Wow, it looks like it’s printed.” That kinda made me feel all fluttery because it was a traditional one and a casual doodle I didn’t even thought too much of.

If you had to draw beautiful, how would it look?

It’s hard, surprisingly. Beautiful is such an abstract thing. I’m already having a hard time finding words that give “beauty” justice.

My first thought is having the canvas full of colors, every kind of colors. But when I put brush on paper (and believe me, I did try) it was this hot mess.

Maybe if I’ll have more time to ponder through it, I’ll create something. Maybe 😉

When was the last time you highlighted someone’s beauty to them?

Yo Kiya. Remember my balloon email for this tag? Yep that. 😀

Basically folks, I just told the awesome maker of this tag that it’s as beautiful as her heart. ❤
