We are all unique. Our individual attributes, personalities & characteristics are what make each of us unmistakably beautiful. Be your own kind of beautiful and don’t try to do things to change yourself into what you think others perceive as beautiful. Just know that you are, and embrace the unique beauty that is yours and yours alone. 🙂
We tend to make a habit out of focusing solely on the outer façade of ourselves and/or others to determine beauty. The fact of the matter is that true beauty is not just skin deep. It’s also a very subjective matter. What I find beautiful about myself or someone else will most likely vary to what your perceptions are…kind of like art. Is there a specific set of guidelines to outline what beauty is? Absolutely not. That determination is a judgment that each of us make personally based on our opinions.
The easiest way to distance yourself from the idea that someone is absolutely either Beautiful – or – Not, is to first acknowledge the fact that: Everyone…Is…Beautiful. Rather than looking at yourself in the mirror or someone in the street and making an ultimate decision, alternatively, hone in on what you do find beautiful. This also applies to situations you are in, places you go, or personal circumstances. Make it a point to seek out beauty rather than ugliness. Isn’t that a much better way to view the world? Appreciate the beauty of your neighbors kind heart, or the beautiful rainbow after the storm. Love your beautiful laugh lines, and enjoy your friends beautiful singing voice. Beauty can be found in everyone and everything! 😉
Here’s your mission should you choose to accept it: Each day, try these 5 things to make you appreciate beauty:
- For everyone you encounter, find one thing you find beautiful about that person. This includes yourself each time you look in a mirror!
- For every place you visit, find one thing you find beautiful about your surroundings.
- Listen to a song that you find absolutely beautiful.
- Share your beauty with someone else. That could mean visiting an old friend, making a donation to a charity you support, or complimenting a stranger.
