What Is Beautiful?

I’ve been a fan of Colbie Caillat, ever since her debut album Coco in 2007  I love that the album is named after her childhood nickname and that she was so nervous when she auditioned for American Idol, she flunked two auditions, but went on to be a best-selling artist.

Recently I discovered this video for her song Try, and it really touched me.  As someone who has spent a lifetime feeling like an ugly duckling – never pretty enough and never good enough (and that was even before the disfiguring effects of cancer) –  this is the message I should have absorbed instead.

Please watch it and let me know what you think.
