i asked some friends to define "beautiful" for me. these were there answers......
a guy said-"um, very good looking?? amazing in there own way?? is that the right answer??!"
a girl said-"nice, thoughtful, generous, etc..."
another guy said-"nice and stuff"
another girl said-"ummm pretty on the outside, sweet, kind on the inside"
then i asked God-
"Let your beauty not be external – the braiding of hair and wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes – but the inner person of the heart, the lasting beauty of a gentle and tranquil spirit, which is precious in God’s sight."
in other words, you dont need long hair, be super skinny, and wear hollister and aero. if you do, thats totally ok. whats really beautiful, is how you act.
who decided beauty is a barbie doll?
seriously. who decided you need to look like super-star barbie?
think about it.
ya know, we all want guys to like us. and no matter what you look like, theres not only one, but THOUSANDS that will. i'm not exaggerating. really. and ya know something else? one of those guys, is the one who made this universe. the one that chose every freckle on you.
i have a challenge for you. all of next week.....
every morning when you wake up, look in the mirror, and say your favorite beauty bible verse, and smile.
i've struggled with this all summer. and i'm sick of it.
