What it Means to Be Beautiful - Developing a More Loving Relationship with Yourself

By Rebecca Lewis on February 20, 2012

Everyone has their own definition of beauty. Some people think that when they look like the celebrities they see on TV, they’re already beautiful. But the concept of beauty is far more complex. It includes a wide range of concerns which is centred on building positive relation with oneself. Taking care of yourself and loving it the way you should is what constitutes positive beauty. In essence, it’s about giving justice to God’s given gifts.

 

1.       Everyone is uniquely beautiful.

Thousands of girls would look on the photos of famous Hollywood celebrities and wished they look the same. Unknowingly, these celebrities they look up to have once fancied other faces and wished they also have the same qualities. Here’s the thing. People are unique in their own special ways.

2.       Taking care of yourself enhances your self-confidence.

Taking care of yourself basically boosts your confidence. No matter how busy your schedule is, you should always find time for yourself. Some people find it a waste of time to stare at the mirror and put some makeup on. But it’s not. Looking attractive makes you feel confident on what you do. And when you’re confident, you do your best. Getting facials, body massage, bathing in scented oils, and anything that makes the body feel that it’s cared for are good ways to improve your confidence. 

3.       You are beautiful just the way you are.

A lot of girls are going crazy about the latest diet fad and expensive supplements or beauty treatments just to achieve the looks they want. Remember, your uniqueness is what makes you beautiful. There’s a big difference between being beautiful and being fashionable. Being ‘in’ wouldn’t give you long-lasting happiness.  

4.       Real beauty comes from within.

As we mentioned earlier, beauty is far more complex than what we think it is. It encompasses not just your physical being but what’s within. When you’re good towards other people, they will admire you. Cheer up and smile. There’s something about smiling that makes uplifts our mood and make us feel better about ourselves too. Reconnect with other people. Build healthy relationships with them.

5.       Nothing is more important than feeling good.

Your friend might tell you that you look great wearing a dress but if you feel more comfortable wearing jeans, so be it. When you feel good about yourself, it will reflect on your appearance.  

6.       Being beautiful means being healthy.

Proper nutrition makes your skin glow brighter and your figure more desirable. What you do basically affects how you look. If you feel ill, it will reflect on your body. Many of us spend a fortune on beauty products when the optimum beauty solution is healthy living. Nonetheless, you should not restrain yourself from the things you fancy the most. It’s okay to munch on a bag of chocolate chips or a cup of ice cream once in a while so long as you observe a healthy diet. 

7.       You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

You don’t have to be overly sexy or thin to look great. You don’t have to wear the dress that Hollywood celebrities wear to look gorgeous. Again, you’re beautiful just the way you are.  

8.       LOVE yourself.

Finally, the main context of beauty is all developing a more loving relationship with yourself and taking care of your precious body. Loving yourself gives you more time and freedom to do the things that will make you live a happier and more fulfilling more.
