Last week I attempted to do an outfit post for my blog. I learned a few things. I have an image in my head of what I look like, that image is far from the truth. I’ve had two kids and I’m defiantly not 19 anymore. My clothes are really just kind of sad excuse for drapery. My husband calls them “frumptastic.” It’s so true; I have no idea how to dress my current body. Seeing myself like that made me pretty sad, how did I let myself go so bad? I want to feel good about myself inside and out.
I believe that beauty really does come from within. A person who isn’t all that attractive on the outside can be made beautiful by a kind a generous heart. A beautiful person can become ugly if they have a hard and shallow heart. I think a lot of people feel that way about beauty even if they don’t realize it. Say a woman goes on a first date with a man who she is extremely attracted too. She is excited for their evening together and then she starts to get to know him. Suddenly he isn’t so attractive to her anymore. She probably is thinking “If he talking about his expensive car and work out routine on more time I’m going to scream.” I guess they won’t be having a second date.
Although it is important to have a beautiful heart I think it is also important to feel beautiful on the outside. Everyone feels beautiful in their own special way. What I think is pretty and what you think is pretty might be two completely different things, and that’s okay. As long as I have confidence in whatever it is. Some people might only feel comfortable wearing glasses; others might not be caught dead out of the house without makeup on. It’s all a personal preference. If you really feel good about the way you look it will show and really make a difference in your own personal attitude.
The way you carry yourself through life is important. If you stand tall and walk with pride you will command the respect that you deserve. If you walk around hunched over staring at the ground, you will most likely be looked over. Think about the way you walk around in your daily life. Do you show how you really feel about yourself? Or are you just slithering around trying to be seen.
It isn’t easy to feel good about the way you look. Even the most beautiful of people can feel like they look like a “0.” Maybe it’s a good idea to take a deep look into your closet and yourself. See what’s in there that you should discard and what you can update with that will make you feel like a million bucks all the time.
I’m planning on taking steps to make myself not only feel good on the inside but on the outside too. What are you going to do?
