Beauty. The dictionary defines it as “the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to mind”. Beauty can be seen or felt as many different things, after all it is in the eye of the beholder, but it almost feels as though society has taken that concept away. Society has painted a superficial image of what beauty is pertaining to women. It’s nothing of what ordinary women feel comfortable with or could live up too. Long weave similar to Rapunzel, a pretty flawless face, large full breasts, and a big round behind. Not to mention a waist so small it could be considered invisible. Living in America, this is what you would expect. An image, unrealistic in form for us to live up to. But it leaves you asking the question, “What is beauty?” In different countries around the world beauty is seen as many things. For instance, in China women with youthful faces and very petite bodies are seen as beautiful, while in multiple parts of Africa women who are very thick are seen as gorgeous. The world has perceived its definition of beauty in multiple ways, but when it comes to us individually what should we consider??
1. There is only one you!
I guarantee there is no one as unique as you from the curl of your hair down to the shape of your foot. You are beautiful and you better know it. There is someone for everyone and they absolutely adore you!
2. Stop comparing
As women, we tend to be our worse critics. You’re never going to have her nose or her curvature bum, but you can rock yours. Once we accept and love who we are it won’t be hard for anyone else to. They will absorb you as a whole and want nothing less.
3. Embrace your uniqueness
So you really dislike your round face? Find some cute glasses to show it off. Or you think your forehead is too big? A cute hairstyle will compliment you. Find what works for you and show it off!
And last but not least. Love you! Tell yourself all the things you love about yourself and build on it. Make its daily routine. Beauty is so many things besides looks and your personality will shine through. Be the best you can be and everyday show off your definition of beauty!
