Real Beauty

One thing about me is that I love looking at beautiful people – and I don’t just mean looks. Some people can be beautiful, but others have a beauty that comes from not only their looks but who they are. Have you ever been in a room with someone who is just gorgeous but is a crappy person, or mean, or seeks attention? I don’t know about you but I immediately get turned off by those qualities regardless of how amazing looking a person might be. 

I find there to be something so awe inspiring about a person who has exemplary qualities. A  couple of years ago I saw a stunning girl. We both saw each other in passing and we smiled but when she did smile, it had such a kindness to her that made her even more beautiful. You could just tell that it was a good human and those types of people are a true gem to find.  A person may not even be what is deemed pretty by society but can have a quality about them that makes them beautiful, its all about who they are. 

I have a friend who becomes so beautifully sexy when she is 100% herself. She literally lights up a room anywhere. Theres such a vibe that she instills that whenever I get to see her I get excited to be around her and watch how much fun she has being comfortable with herself. To me it all goes back to owning who & what you are. You get to decide everyday when you wake up how you’ll act, what qualities you’ll show people and I’ll be point blank – you get to decide if you are going to wake up as a beautiful person. 

That may sound harsh but I truly believe that ANYONE can have beauty it’s just how they display it. Taking a minute to acknowledge someone, literally dancing like no ones watching, laughing loudly, and opening doors 😉 are just a few of my favorite ways to make my own beauty shine to myself. I do it for me, because at the end of the day I’m the one who gets into bed with myself each night and wakes up with myself each morning. I choose to be a type of person who has qualities that make me feel good. Choose to look yourself and find what you LOVE about yourself and become it, because that’s when real beauty shines! <3

    Beautiful post mama! I completely agree. Beauty, like happiness is an inside job. It’s not something you can buy or put on.
