When we talk about beauty, we are often speaking about what someone looks like from the outside. But inner beauty is something completely different—it is the true nature of a person, the real person within. It is the personality, the goodness, the stuff that makes a person a true person. External beauty is only a part of the whole package, and without a beautiful heart and spirit, the external beauty means very little.
When we refuse to be ourselves and stuff our feelings, we can lose sight of who we really are. In turn, this influences our confidence and hinders our self-esteem. You might not look like the airbrushed model in magazines, and you might not have the bank account you desire, but you can still be true to yourself, and flow with confidence.
Forgive yourself when you make a mistake. Years of mentally bashing yourself for even the smallest misstep, can make you self-conscious, nervous and even fearful. Saying “I forgive myself” releases the burden from being a perfectionist and lets you breathe. When we invest in our talents we feed our inner child, and unleash confidence and joy.
Without hope we can’t function. We can find hope in the small things in life, like observing nature or enjoying a cup of coffee with a dear friend. Everything around you makes up the beauty that is you.
We need to keep growing and invest in our dreams, press on. We have the right to be any one we want to be and do anything we want to do. Don’t stand back and listen to that inner voice in your head telling you all the negative things about yourself any longer.
When you start to love yourself the hidden beauty will shine, unlock the door to happiness and let the beauty shine through. Enjoy the beauty that has been locked away for so long.
Beauty is more than skin-deep. It is showing the goodness of what’s inside of you. Stand Proud and shine beauty and love.
