When the amazing August McLaughlin asked me to contribute an inspirational article to her 2015 Beauty of a Woman BlogFest, I knew I had to rise to the occasion. My hope is that my contribution inspires you to look beyond the surface to see the true inner beauty of a woman, especially if that woman is you.
For me, the beauty of a woman isn’t the appearance of her body or the smoothness of her face. It’s the compassion in her heart, the authenticity in her voice, and the sparkle in her eyes. Her beauty comes from living her life in alignment with her values, from making a difference, and from inspiring and supporting others in achieving their dreams.
True beauty comes from a woman acknowledging her own needs, setting healthy boundaries, and going after her life ambitions with boldness and enthusiasm. Her beauty lies in embracing her uniqueness and shining her light while empowering others to shine as well.
A genuine beauty takes extraordinary care of herself and the people she loves. Her outward beauty is simply a reflection of her inner beauty, her good heart.
I feel very grateful to have shining examples of true feminine beauty in my life through amazing friends who are truly breathtaking from the inside out.
Thank you to my beautiful friends for embodying beauty and illuminating the world!
