Inner Beauty

A big part of inner beauty is accepting ourselves the way we are. The media and the fashion industry promote unrealistic body types and lifestyles that can distort the way we look at ourselves. What we need to realize is that they are focusing on the wrong aspirations, we should focus on the good that people do and the way they treat others. We’ve all heard the stories of pop star and movie divas being vile to their staff and totally self-absorbed. To me that is not beautiful in any way, no matter what they look like.

To accept ourselves we need to try and be the best we can. The old saying “a healthy body equals a healthy mind” sounds like a cliché but I really believe in it. It’s important to keep your body active and fit, to stimulate your system and your mind. Even a 20 minute walk every day, drinking plenty of water regularly and eating healthily can have a huge, positive impact on your health and well-being. And when you feel good inside the “light starts to shine”.

I’m going to leave you with one last quote from a trend setter and fashion icon that really sums it up for me.

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself”
