Beauty Within

We as women are complex. There are many components that come together to make us unique. Our ability to problem-solve, skill in multi-tasking, and simple enjoyment of the softer qualities of being a woman are but a few characteristics we nurture. Certainly, the maintenance of our outside package is also important. When we gaze into the mirror, we need to feel confident about our appearance. This does not mean perfect physical beauty, but keeping a neat, clean, and well-manicured image.

We have all heard the adage, "it’s what’s inside that counts." This statement is absolutely true. In a society that promotes youth, health, and surface beauty, it is easy to forget to recognize the value of the beauty within.

Possessing self-confidence is a wonderful gift. You can engage in conversation without feeling inadequate. You can be active within your community, your church, and your work environment with renewed fervor. When faced with situations that can be intimidating, you can step up to the challenge. Reservoirs of self-doubt can be emptied and replaced with confidence and excitement about what you are capable of accomplishing.

When you build a strong foundation for inner beauty, your attitude is always positive, and attitude can be everything! Those around you will see your inner beauty by virtue of how you interact with them. The reality is that most of us prefer spending time with individuals that are upbeat, caring, and knowledgeable.

Developing your inner beauty does not occur overnight. Adding layers to your inner beauty can be systematic or random, depending on your lifestyle at the moment. No matter your place in life, whether you are starting a career, just became a mother, or a woman in her mature years, you can begin to develop your inner beauty.
