On being beautiful? Beauty is an ever evolving, dynamic concept. It is viewed from the lens of each individuals perspective.
On first thought, the external appearance will be what many people think of.
There is no one definition of beauty.
Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…Think outside of the box…Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.
Beauty does not have to be superficial.
“Some of us teach ourselves and our children to love the superficial outer; our looks, hair, skin, clothes rather than the greater beauty that resides within whereas it is that inner beauty that really defines you and who you truly are.”
Rassool Jibraeel Snyman
Although the concept of beauty can definitely take into account your appearance if you so choose to see so.
“Outer beauty pleases the EYE. Inner beauty captivates the HEART.”
To me, beauty is beyond the external.
Beauty is a state of mind, it is a feeling.
When you glow on the inside, you inevitably radiate beauty on the outside.
Beauty is being comfortable in your own skin.
Beauty is knowing you are worthy.
Beauty is being confident in yourself.
Beauty is to radiate love.
