A Woman is More than Just Her Image


What makes a woman beautiful?

Take a moment to think about an answer before you read on.

Do you have a few suggestions you’d like to offer?

Were any of your suggestions geared more towards a woman’s appearance?

Well, I won’t deny you the fact that when considering what makes a woman beautiful, by default our minds seem to consider the physical attributes  of a woman more often than not. 

Yet, I am here to tell you that it isn’t a woman’s flawless make-up, impeccable style, or perfectly toned body that makes her beautiful. A woman is beautiful simply because she is. 

Think of your sister’s bright smile, your grandmother’s gentle and heart-felt embraces, and your mother’s earnest attempts of taking care of you. Now tell me, if they weren’t wearing the latest trends, and had a perfect blowout-would you find any of them to be anything less than beautiful?

To often a woman's image seems to be the topic of conversation, even if its unnecessary or irrelevant. Once you consider the vast quantity of advertisements from magazines, billboards, commercials, etc. It's not without reason that we are highly aware of the appearance of how people look, especially when considering women. 

The question above (What makes a woman beautiful?) seems to be answered for us without us even realizing. We are bombarded by images of seemingly flawless models consistently. Even if we are told that what we see was doctored and isn’t real, we can't help but compare ourselves and others based off of what we are exposed to. For this reason it isn’t without consequence that we all have a warped idea of what a beautiful woman is.

"Why do I have to have cellulite and stretch marks?" "Why can't I ever have clear skin?" "Why can't I get my hair to look perfect like the girls' in the magazines?" "Why can’t I be skinny like all the pretty girls?” Are all commonly asked questions that I have heard by other females when considering their “flaws”. 

To me, I believe what makes a woman beautiful is passion, a genuine smile, a good heart, and a willingness to openly and fearlessly live her life the way she pleases.

Whatever your so called “flaws” you think you have is all a misconception. So you have cellulite and stretch marks? Or maybe you’re a little heavier or skinner than you’d like? 

Who cares!?

  You are beautiful the way you are. Don’t let someone make you feel insecure for what you were born with. We can’t change what we have, the best thing we can do is accept and love it. You are strong and you are unique. There is only one of you on this entire planet; in this entire universe! Relish with the knowledge of your incredible beauty and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Don’t rely on other people to tell you are beautiful. You are already beautiful. Accept it and drill it into your mind if you have to. 
For anyone that believes and tries to tell you something differently, I am here to tell you that they are wrong. 

You are beautiful. And that is all there is to it.
