I’m amazed at how much we are focused on what others think? We put so much into how many likes we get on a “selfie” or how many people comment on an updated pic. So much time and energy goes into wondering what a bunch of people think of us. Reality is what matters most is what WE think of us. Do You see the beauty within? Do you see that you are fearfully and wonderfully made? Do you like your hair? Eyes? Style? At the end of the day that’s what really matters. And even beyond the physical, are you beautiful inside (sidebar, we’ve all experienced the external beauty that is destroyed by a nasty disposition. but that’s another story for another day). Are you someone that others want to be around? Do YOU make the atmosphere different when you enter a room? Are you a thermostat or a thermometer? You are powerful and have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives around you. But do you see that in yourself?
I had the pleasure of shooting an awesome young lady and a great friend. She is beautiful inside and out, so full of personality and fun. It was just the greatest reminder that we are ALL beautiful. Don’t let anyone who didn’t create you define you!! You were made in the image of God and you ARE incredible.
