What is the definition of beauty anyway?

Hey everyone!
Well, it's the first post of March... :P
But I've decided to dedicate this post to the topic of beauty. Now, what is beauty? Well, society's definition of beauty is pretty much perfection. If you don't look "beautiful", then you aren't. But what's your definition???
So what if your hair isn't thick and shiny like the girls' you see on advertisements? So what if your skin isn't flawless and you're not skinny like the models you see on magazines? Beauty isn't all that! True beauty is what lies on the inside. I would way rather be friends with the shy girl who's considered "uncool" because she prefers hanging out with her family over going to inappropriate parties and volunteering at an elderly home, instead of shopping at the mall; rather than the "pretty" popular girl who thinks she's better than everyone else and makes of the fun of the ones who don't meet her standards. Wouldn't you?
Sometimes you really have to think about that...
Don't tear yourself down because you don't think you're good enough or pretty enough! Next time you find yourself envying the perfect hair/other feature of models, think about everything good about you! Would you rather be standing under a hot light, your skin covered with makeup, ready for the next magazine shoot, or be relaxing at home with your family in your pajamas, watching a movie, with popcorn?
You think about it, God made you, and God is perfect. He doesn't make mistakes. He made you exactly the way he wanted to. I mean, he knows how many hairs are on your head!
The definition of beauty is so distorted in today's society, that girls feel like they have to change for people to like them. The thing is, you don't!
In a world where you can be anything, be yourself!
Have a blessed day everyone!

  2. This is a great lesson, but we shouldn't be stereo-typing girls into categories either, even for example's sake. Parties and the mall might make someone feel beautiful, create enjoyment in a person's life, and that's okay. So is hanging with the family and volunteer work. You can do it all. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. It's really a self opinion thing.
