Just a couple of thoughts that have been on my mind recently.
To get my point across immediately, here is a little illustration:
When God created Eve, he didn't immediately hand her mascara and lipstick and say: "Quick, put these on before Adam gets back so he will think you are beautiful."
See where I am going with this?
Now, don't get me wrong, I am not saying make-up is bad or makes a girl seem fake. Quite the opposite, girls still look pretty with make-up on and everything. It is awesome!
But notice I used the word still.
The word still referring to the fact that they looked just as beautiful without the make-up on.
Do you girls think you look ugly if it is a sweat-pants, hair-up, no make-up kind of day? Well I have news for you. . .
You all still have the same beautiful eyes, same beautiful smile, and same beautiful personality.
See where I am going with this yet? :)
Girls, when I tell you that you look beautiful today, I truly mean it. I promise. I wouldn't just throw that out there here and there even if it seems like I do, but I really, truly mean it.
And let's get another thing cleared up, when I say you are beautiful, not only am I referring to your natural beauty, but I am mostly referring to your personality! :)
(When I say 'personality', my definition is that you are kind, caring, and just so sweet all around in spirit and in the way you live, being an example to everyone around you.)
For example: there might be a girl who is absolutely gorgeous with her looks, but if she is rude, self-centered, and just a plain brat, you will never catch me telling her she is beautiful, because to me she is not. Maybe some guys dig the girls that are mean to everyone, although I don't know why they would. . .
I believe that to be beautiful, it is more important what is on the inside of you, rather than the outside.
Well. . . sorry, that was a really long and random thought, but I believe it with my whole heart. :)
So if I come up to you some day and tell you that you look beautiful, not only do I think you look pretty that day, but I also love your personality. Confidence is also something that makes a girl look extremely gorgeous, just throwin' that out there. . .
Now some of you might get sad at that confidence part, because you might think you don't have any.
Do you want to know the secret to having confidence that makes you look gorgeous?
Here it is:
Make the inside of you beautiful.
Be the best person you can be, and that will make you more beautiful than any make-up product the industry can throw at you.
So I guess in conclusion, no matter what make-up you put on, you will probably only feel as good as you do on the inside.
Here is a fun challenge I have for you as well: once a week, don't put any make-up on the entire day.
You can still dress up and all that good stuff, but try not to wear make-up for the entire day. Just try it. :)
So yeah, if I offended anyone with this post, make a comment and tell me why you think girls shouldn't feel good about themselves on the inside. ok? :)
But also, leave a comment adding your own opinion, and we can discuss that as well. :)
Ladies, don't ever let boys treat you below the standards of a Daughter of God. Because that is what you are.
I love you all. :) You are ALL beautiful!!
