BEAUTY & the BEAST
I saw todays post on a page of one of the so many bloggers I follow HER OWN LABEL and felt the impulse to use it today since I felt that there has been so many uncomfortable issues surrounding what beauty is to a woman and how best to define beauty
What is beauty? Does it exist? Or is there a beast corrupting the mind from what true beauty really is so that you never see it? Deep questions. But yet there are many out there who struggle with finding the answer. Take a mirror and look deep into the eyes of what most people say is the window to your soul. What do you see? Pain? Are they pure?
Makeup can cover up a lot of things but it cannot cover up anguish or pride in ones eyes. You see, our eyes say a lot about what is going on deep within. For many are deceived by what a mirror is reflecting with its fascination and obsession for outer beauty, fancy clothes, and idolized jewelry that we all feel we need to be beautiful. But this simply is not true. Beauty comes from within. Therefore we must guard what our eyes are letting in.
. And the media makes it challenging for us all. It's so easy to be intrigued by famous celebrities or commercials that portray a false image of what true beauty really is. Especially reality T.V. Ever notice how many women either have dds, a big booty, long hair, or a skinny hour glass figure? Our eyes are taking in all of this. As a female, it is that much harder for us not to compare ourselves with the world's definition of beauty.
I say this... if deep within you are full of life and happy and humble with who you are, THEN look in the mirror to see if those exuberant pink pumps are looking on point with your gorgeous pink lipgloss! Just don't look into that same exact mirror to see if those same pumps and lipgloss make you FEEL beautiful, happy, and full of life.
. Our clothes and makeup should portray a reflection of who we are inside - not define us. It's that simple. That my dear... is what beauty is all about.
