Beauty

Beauty is not whether you have the straightest, whitest teeth. Nor is it whether you have the clearest skin or a perfect body with a slim waist, wide hips, and full bust, but it is when you are able to wake up in the mornings with a smile on your face because you are content with your life. Beauty is when you are able to shower the people around you with endless affection because you have so much love to give. Beauty is when you are able to wake up in the mornings and go to your job because it is something you enjoy to do and not because you feel like you have to. Beauty is when you aren’t afraid to look stupid in front of your friends whether it’s slipping on ice and falling straight on your face, or dancing off-beat to a trap song that you love. Beauty is when you care about what’s going on in the world and you want to make a difference in people’s lives. Beauty is when you give without expecting anything in return because you truly care about others’ well-being. Beauty is the values that you hold so dear to you, because it is what makes you who you are. Beauty is embracing that you’re different and you’re strong enough to refuse to compromise yourself for anyone. Beauty is uplifting others around you to be the best that they can be instead of bashing and bringing others down. Beauty is making mistakes but instead of giving up — you learn. Beauty is to work on improving yourself everyday.

Beauty is accepting that no one is perfect, including yourself, and that’s perfectly okay because your imperfections are what makes you you. You are what makes you beautiful, and don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
