“They say that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder; if only we could all perceive beauty with the eye of totality, each unique expression of existence on this planet perceived in its perfection…”
This is what Isha Judd says in her post, Where Does True Beauty Lie?
For me, true beauty really does lie in the eye of the beholder. Your definition of beauty may be different from my definition of beauty. However, I will add that no matter who or what I’m looking at, I look for the beauty within them…because we are all beautiful in our own ways.
Charlotte Kuchinsky says in her article, “What Is True Beauty?“:
“In truth, beauty should be looked at as a combination of physical attributes, inner spirit, personality, intelligence, and heart. Such a definition would greatly expand how the human race views the concept of true beauty. Few, if any, individuals would then been considered average, since no two people are alike and all have something unique to offer the world…”
Wouldn’t the world be boring if all women looked like Angelina Jolie or Megan Fox? I use them as an example because they’ve been perceived to be two of the “most beautiful” people.
We are all unique and beautiful in our own ways, but too many of us are focused on what’s “wrong” with us instead of accepting ourselves for who we are and what we look like.
The next time you catch yourself saying, “I hate my ___”, turn that statement around and say, “I love my ____”
Instead of saying, “I feel fat” say “I feel love”…
When you THINK and FEEL beautiful, you will BE beautiful! It’s a matter of changing your mindset and getting into the habit of believing that you are indeed beautiful. True beauty is realizing that YOU are beautiful!
