“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.The beauty of a woman only grows with the passing years”. Audrey Hepburn
We live in a society that seems to predominantly honor and appreciate the attributes of external beauty. For some reason, how we look physically trumps all the definitions and ideas of what true beauty really is. Have you heard the saying, “pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside?” Well, for some people, no matter how “beautiful” they may be physically, on the inside, they are simply unattractive. To be truly beautiful, there has to be a level of depth and wisdom to your being. You can’t simply rely on superficial attributes to get you through life.
A beautiful woman is someone who is:
You must be strong and gentle at the same time. You carry yourself in a manner that is humble and honorable. You are vulnerable yet confident. And you sail through life with a deep understanding of your purpose.
You are kind and gracious in how you treat and interact with others. You are easily relatable , and you are sensitive to others needs. At times, you can be selfless to those who might not even deserve your love. While others may perceive your kindness for weakness, you know that it is one of the strongest attributes a woman can possess.
You are confident when stepping outside the norm. You are not afraid to challenge the status quo or break down barriers that hinder your growth. You are always willing to chase your dreams without hesitation. You do courageous things, because you are not afraid to be different or color outside the lines.
Tell us what you think about the state of beauty in the age of social media. What makes someone truly beautiful in your eyes?
