Our society is obsessed with being beautiful! But is there more to beauty than what meets the eye?
We live in a society that places a high degree of importance on physical appearance. Television, movies, magazines and billboards all display attractive people. But should beauty really be that important for a woman? Is beauty something that a woman should strive for? What makes a woman truly beautiful?
What makes a woman truly happy?
I believe she should be true to herself, reminding herself to be aware of another woman's feelings not out of weakness but out of strength.
Here a few helpful tips
Intelligence: Be beautiful with your mind. Unless you are with a group of 'brainy' women types I think you should keep the conversation light. You do not want to intimidate. You already do with your look.
Confidence: You are probably loaded with confidence. We all know the saying, 'If you got it flaunt it.' I suggest you don't. When you walk into a room, think, 'There you are.' And not, 'here I am.' Believe me, with your presence they will know you have arrived!
Dress: Don't allow another woman's insecurity to intimidate 'your style.' In this instance, be you 100%. Dress to please your husband and yourself. Let your beauty shine. Those that don't like it... just delete.
Affluent: Be rich within. Don't let your money ever say, 'I am too good for you.' There is no beauty in that. Be down-to-earth. You can still wear your Jimmy Choo shoes and your designer jeans!
Operate in shades of Grey: If you have a strong personality don't smother it; regulate it to the temperature of the women in the group.
Competition: Women will feel you are a threat. It is your goal for your sake to make your women friends feel like winners. You already are.
Mean Girls: They always run in a group! They bond in numbers and put others down. They are judgmental and cold. They have no beauty! If you are a part of a group such as this examine your reasons why and...run!
It's been said that comparison is the thief of joy. A poignant reminder to celebrate yourself and your beauty, inside and out, as well as that of your girlfriends, older and younger. We need never stop feeling -- and acting -- beautiful.
