To me, the word ‘beautiful’ doesn’t necessarily mean outer beauty. In fact, it’s more important how you are on the inside. I’m sure you’ve met many ‘beautiful’ people, yet their mean and hurtful character makes them completely ugly.
Here are top 5 traits that I think make a person oh so beautiful!
1. Be a positive person!
No one wants to be around someone who is negative all the time, constantly complaining or whining about their looks, their job, their mom, whatever. The world is already full enough of negativity, be positive and stand out among the crowd!
2. Speak about yourself in a happy and affirmative way!
Similar to number one, if you speak about your qualities and strengths of your character while continually working on what you think you could do better, you will shine.
3. Having a strong sense of faith in God!
So many people nowadays are only concerned with their appearance or how much money they have. A person who has faith in God and accepts His love and puts Him first, that person is the most beautiful because she’s the most fulfilled.
4. Run your own race and stay true to who you are!
It’s so easy to get swept away into what other people think is “cool” – and compromise values in the process. Be who you are meant to be. Don’t conform to what the crowd is doing – stand out in your own unique way! Trust in God and let your inner beauty shine through! It’s not all about having the latest jeans or what your hair looks like.
5. Give unto others!
It doesn’t need to be money or material things. When you are openly generous with helping out a friend or your parents – looking after their dog, picking up the kids from school or donating some old clothes to Good Will. Generous people who don’t always put themselves first and look out for the best interest of others are truly beautiful. God says: Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you. – Deuteronomy 16: 17
