I know what makes me beautiful: everything! Just kidding, though, I don’t think I could write something like this without sounding self-adsorbed (in my opinion). I have little things I like about myself, like how I keep secrets and how I sometimes manage to create a great outfit despite being a “bigger” girl, but I’d rather much talk about a woman in my life who I find absolutely beautiful – inside and out. My sister is beyond a doubt the most charismatic, interesting, and selfless person I have had the honor of knowing throughout my life (though, it wasn’t like there was much of a choice…you can’t get rid of family, lol!). She’s a mother of three and always devotes her life to helping those around her in the best way she can – while looking amazing in her Steven Madden heels too! I honestly don’t know how she does it, but she gets everything done in the nick of time and still has the time to polish her nails in a bright orange color (her favorite color for fall). Throughout her life, she has faced many hardships (one of which was getting pregnant at a young age) but she always managed to keep her head up high and do everything she could to her best ability and that’s what I admire most about her. I could honestly go on and on about the little things that make her a beautiful person. She’s the best person I know.
Beauty is skin deep,aka inner beauty is the riches found. And it can be a range of things. Believing beauty is love. The inner love you have for yourself and not selfishly, but lovingly for others,as well. Balanced confidence in yourself, not low and definitely not to high. Just right, enough to be able to see the beauty in others, without looking on the outside body look. Seeing the inner beauty and not the deficiency of others. Always finding a reason to smile, thinking positive in every situation. Uplifting with a kind word or deed, a since of humor. Personally I don’t believe they’re unattractive people physically, I believe they’re ways of being can be unattractive. Being the best you, is beautiful to me. Being beautiful is a choice. I choose to be beautiful in every way I can in character and in deed. That’s true beauty to me. Blessings
I love using makeup to play up my best features. True beauty is knowing the best parts of yourself and sharing them with others.
