Truly Beautiful From the Inside

We all see the covers of magazines as we walk through the grocery store checkouts with articles of the best dressed, or hottest this and most attractive that.  But what these magazines miss is featuring what makes a person truly beautiful from the inside.  Beauty is more than a great tan, toned arms and perfect hair.  It’s the person you are from the inside out.

Inner beauty isn’t something that you can buy or apply, but it can still be show stopping.  Confidence in yourself is a fantastic trait that helps radiate a positive energy.  People can feel it from you, no matter what you are wearing or who did your hair.

Because inner beauty is about who you are not as much what you look like, building and developing character traits like gratitude and selflessness truly make a person more magnetic and pleasing to be around.  Focus on becoming a better person and you will shine.

Do you ever compare yourself to other girls? Comparing is never a good idea. We often compare our biggest weaknesses with someone else’s greatest strengths.  Today, decide that you will practice kindness to yourself. Decide that you will stop comparing yourself to other girls because you are so beautiful inside and out, never let anyone change that.

Another trait that radiates true beauty is your smile.  A smile can go a long way in helping someone’s day feel better, to passing on a positive energy, to being open and friendly. You will never know the power of your smile and how much it will help others.  Someone that is truly beautiful is not only kind, compassionate, and caring, but joyful. I believe that when someone smiles there is a light that glows from within that no amount of makeup can achieve.

Like that friendly smile, be other’s focused.  The quote “No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care” is so true.  When you take yourself out of the picture and focus on building and helping others, you will attract more friends and have better relationships.

True beauty is who you are – it’s your heart, your character, your beauty that shines from within!

So I challenge you to look in the mirror and tell yourself that you are beautiful regardless of the imperfections you see that make you unique, to find moments of joy in your everyday life, and to spread it to others.
