As a society, we talk a lot about beauty. What makes a woman beautiful? Why is one person more beautiful than another? What can we do, what products can we use, to make ourselves more beautiful?
The older I get, and the more people I meet, the more I understand the old adage that true beauty comes from within. The women who are deemed the most beautiful in the world are often not beautiful due to the regularity of their features or the precise shape of their bodies, but because they have a confidence in themselves and an inner light that shines through.
I often tell my friends that they are beautiful. I know many of them think I’m talking about their spirits or their minds, because women in general are are not taught to think of themselves as more than passably attractive lest we be considered vain. But I do mean physically, as well as mentally and spiritually when I say my friends are beautiful. Because they are. Each and every one of them.
I challenge you to look at yourself this week, and try to see what I see when I look at you. Because I guarantee, you are beautiful too!
