Honestly, I haven’t felt pretty in a while.
And it’s not something I’m looking to get pity from.
I can encourage other women by telling them they’re beautiful and they’re worth it but sometimes I can’t do the same for myself.
I haven’t looked in a mirror and felt completely beautiful or said to myself “girl, you look good” or felt satisfied with my overall appearance in a long LONG time.
I think it’s because I’m comparing myself to other women who I believe are “better” than me.
And by better I mean: smaller than me, better dressed than me, happier than me, longer hair than me, smoother skin than me and on and on and on.
When I truly reflect on it, though this feeling of beauty does overcome me and appearance doesn’t have anything to do with it.
I feel most beautiful after I spend time with God. He calls me beautiful every time he looks down on his masterpiece.
True beauty glows from the inside out.
I find my own beautiful eveyday and its not attached to something that won’t last.
Isn’t beauty in the eye of the beholder?
