We spend a significant amount of our time and money in barbershops, spas, boutiques, malls, make-up counters and in the mirror working on our outer appearance. While we are doing this, we never give one thought to how our inner beauty or ugliness is affecting our lives every day.
You can spend thousands of dollars on surgery, clothes and haircuts but if you are ugly on the inside it will always shine though to the world around you. You can try to be phony but it will only work for so long. Work on your inner beauty by practicing random acts of kindness, by saying encouraging things to your colleagues, by complimenting people or smiling more. Read The Power of Nice by Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval for more pointers.
You should limit gossip, don’t be angry all the time, stop being defensive and stop hurting people’s feelings. It’s not nice and it makes you look ugly. Try putting your guards down, smile more, be thankful, say yes more often, be solution oriented and I promise your inner beauty will shine through. When this happens on your worst hair day you will still look like a million bucks.
I’ve told you before, You Are Enough! Beauty truly is more than skin deep and if you want to be beautiful from the inside out let go of your past hurt and just let yourself shine.
Natural beauty…Now That’s Presidential!
