Who is Susan Boyle?
Susan Boyle is a contestant on Britain's Got Talent. She's 47, lives along with a cat. She's frumpy, unemployed, from a small Scottish village. She is unmarried, and never been kissed. Her previous singing experience was limited to the church choir and karaoke. she was treated as a laughing stock when she walked on stage, the audience laughed and the judges shook their heads in disbelief as she said she would like to be as successful as Elaine Paige. In most respects, you might look at this kind of person many as Loser.
And now, go and watch her performance here! (the embed has been disabled). Trust me, It's must watch video, well worth the 7 minutes it takes to view !
Wow! Wow! Wow!
Gosh! What an amazing voice and stunning performance. When Susan Boyle turned mockery into awe and laughter into tears. I thought, what a lesson in humility this is for all of us,
"Everyone laughed at you but no-one is laughing now. I'm reeling with shock." Holden added: "It's the biggest wake-up call ever."
Yup! It's the biggest wake-up call for all of us, There are so many lessons that we can learn from this woman's story. we are just like the three judges and the audience that always love to judge people by appearance and only think the pretty and good looking are expected to achieve. It was rude, cruel and arrogant. Hopefully we learned the old adage: never judge a book by it's cover.
Now go and read her story here and HERE, you will definitely love this lady more!
From The Herald
Susan is a reminder that it's time we all looked a little deeper. She has lived an obscure but important life. She has been a companionable and caring daughter. It's people like her who are the unseen glue in society; the ones who day in and day out put themselves last. They make this country civilised and they deserve acknowledgement and respect.
Susan Boyle - you GO girl!
DO YOU JUDGE OTHER BY THE WAY THEY LOOK?
*The more we accept ourselves, valuing ourselves inside as well as out, the more we accept other people. By seeing that we are all attractive in our own way , we stop belittling ourselves and others.
"Our lack of compassion stems from our inability to see deeply into the nature of things."
