You've heard the saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Well, when you think of beauty, what comes to mind? I don't think of just looks and how attractive a person is. Instead, I look at everything a person has to offer. A smile, confidence and big heart are all beautiful traits in my eyes. Don't you agree? While we can find ourselves getting hung up on looks alone, we have to remember, especially if we have children, that looks will not pay the bills (unless you are a model) and shouldn't be what you base success or friendship on. If you take time to really get to know a person, you will find beautiful things about them. And, don't forget to take time to look at yourself. Even if you don't like what you see in the mirror, doesn't mean you are not beautiful and can't feel beautiful about yourself and what you have to offer the world.
Being a mom of two little girls, their smiles light up my life each and every day. And, on those days that I look in the mirror and feel "blah," I glance over to the them and am reminded that beauty comes in all forms, and should be cherished. Just look at the two beautiful flowers in my life, and see why they inspire me to be the best I can be, while not getting hung up on all the superficial things in life.
I am not alone when I think about beauty in all it forms. The folks at Dollar General and Dove also believe that there is unique beauty all around us, and should be rewarded! Together they have teamed up to celebrate and inspire everyone to embrace their own beauty and what is means to them.
So, next time you find yourself asking if you are beautiful or look good (or thin) in an outfit, remember that you are beautiful in more ways than one, and that you take the time to truly appreciate your unique beauty and that of those around you. Your kids learn from you -- don't you want them to not get hung up on their appearances -- but, instead look for and find the qualities in themselves and others that make us all beautiful? :-)
