5 Things That Make a Person Truly Beautiful

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

    I have a personal story to attest to #2. I am in the vocal program at my school, but I never had any confidence in my voice. Then, I would tell people how terrible my voice was when they tried to compliment it. When I did that my voice slowly began getting worse and worse. I realized this and the pattern of putting myself down that I had followed, and was determined not to continue it.
    Now, when people compliment my voice, I thank them. And my voice has become a TON better!! 😀

    Positivity, confidence, and charity are all beautiful traits, regardless of religion. I see beautiful people of all religions (and lack thereof) every day.

    I love this.

    (1 Peter 3:3-4) Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.
