Beauty comes from within. We might think that this saying is overrated, that it has been said a thousand times before. But, for us women, this quote is all the more true. Real beauty is being beautiful not only on the outside, but also from the inside. A beautiful attitude is just as important as having a beautiful face. Having a good heart is as important as having a gorgeous body. So how can we shape our inner beauty? Well, we don’t need to buy a lot of beauty products for one thing, since our inner beauty doesn’t need make-up; all we need to do is just nurture and embrace the following attitudes for a better and more beautiful inner you:
Who doesn’t love a kind woman? According to Mandy Hale, author of The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass, “There’s nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.” Indeed, kindness makes a woman more beautiful because this is one of the values that show how pure and how good the heart of the woman is. A kind woman can truly captivate and draw the heart of other people.
Simplicity is beauty. A woman can be beautiful just by being simple. A woman doesn’t need to overdress and overdo her makeup just to look really good. It’s okay as long as we keep ourselves clean and healthy. It’s actually more natural and not forced if you just keep things simple.
I personally believe that a confident woman is a beautiful woman. A confident woman gives the aura of a super woman; it’s like she can take on the entire world just because of her self-confidence and she can also face every challenge and every difficulty thrown at her. So enough with the insecurities. People would really appreciate it more if you’ve self-confidence and if you would believe in yourself that you’re beautiful and capable of doing a lot of things. Because if you won’t even believe in yourself, who else will?
A woman who is cheerful is like a breath of fresh air. A woman who gives a dazzling smile is really more beautiful and attractive than one who is always frowning or sulking. People want to see the positive attitude of a woman. There’s actually something behind a woman’s smile that draws other people’s attention toward her. Some would even say that a woman’s genuine laugh is like music to people’s ears.
Last but not least is intelligence. Intelligence also makes a woman more beautiful and attractive. A smart woman really puts people in awe. Men nowadays would prefer women who are well-read and conversant with different topics. My male colleagues in the business, for example,really find women with both beauty and brains hot and sexy. This is because there’s really an inner beauty in a woman who knows a lot of things and who is sure of herself.
“The beauty of a woman isn’t in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
