Wordfull Wednesday - Inner Beauty
Chocolate on my Cranium has come up with the Wordful Wednesday Challenge. On a Wednesday a topic will be posted and the following wednesday post your view of the topic and add it to Mr Linky so everyone can read. This sounds like a good companion for Wordless Wednesday - so we will be taking alternate weeks. This weeks topic:
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Some times I think it is all well and good that we are taught it is what is on the inside that counts. But then I think - what is on my inside? What type of person am I? Am I beautiful INSIDE AND OUT?
We are all different and these days with beauty products and hair dye and cosmetic surgery we could all look the same if we wanted to. We could create copies of what we think beauty is. However I think some differences actually can make a person more appealing more exotic. After yesterdays post about Nie Nie and her plane crash where she has sustain terrible burns, I have been thinking would I love myself the same if I were physically injured? Would I love my husband or family members the same if they were severely disfigured? This has lead me to think we could all do well with improving our inner beauty and being able to see the inner beauty in others as opposed to outward looks/beauty.
Things I want to do to improve my inner beauty
to be a better listener
( I can/do listen but my desire to talk too much overides it ~ and I fear that people get sick of me because I talk too much and might think that I am not listening to them ~ I just can't help it honestly, but I am going to work on it)
take more time to help/listen/serve others
read more/learn more
learn to have more fun with my children
Inner beauty is something that just radiates out of people - I know the people I admire and I hope that I too have a personal glow an inner beauty radiating to those around me. Outside looks can't last forever but characteristics of love, service, patience, acceptance, humour and fun are timeless.
