What makes someone beautiful? Who decides that?
How often have you let someone else affect the way you feel about yourself? Whether it was a friend, love interest, instagram persona, celebrity...
I have been thinking about this a lot lately because I work in an industry where I am up close and personal with many women on a daily basis. I hear all kinds of stories of insecurities, self-doubt, and women constantly putting their value into external validation.
Women and girls are more confused than ever these days about who they are and what beauty is. With so much access to a constant stream and bombardment of social media and advertisements, they think they need to get this filler, wear this makeup or that outfit or look like a certain group of famous sisters to be beautiful.
I say enough of that! The attention needs to shift inward. If we all looked alike, life would be boring and that is why we are all born with unique features and talents that make us different.
I truly believe that beauty begins inside, with how you feel about yourself. Your self-image affects all areas of your life. How you present yourself to the world, how people treat you, and what you believe you deserve from life. So it needs to be protected and you are the only one who can do that!
Let’s all stop judging ourselves so harshly and begin to really shift our focus inward and embrace our own beauty. We all have “flaws,“ no one is perfect, so stop letting everything on the outside tell you how you should feel on the inside!
Nothing is more beautiful than a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and confident with what she has to offer the world.
I challenge you to start being nicer to yourself and everyday find something you see beautiful within you and take a minute to be grateful for that! Then do the same for someone else and tell them something you find beautiful about them!
The better you feel inside the more it will shine on the outside!
