What does it mean to be truly beautiful inside and out?

True beauty is so hard to define. The official definition of beauty is: a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. But I have a different definition for beauty: a combination of qualities, such as confidence, poise, joy, self control, patience, truthfulness, kindness, persistence, and loyalty, that can shine through a person, making them a positive role model for everyone around them.

As growing girls, we are always concerned about our personal appearances and whether or not we are accepted. I have struggled with these thoughts and know that it is a dangerous situation to be in. But the truth is...is that we are not always going to be able to look our best every day of the week and be accepted by the "cool girls and boys" at school. We have to make a choice. Either to let the thoughts go, or cling on to them and be miserable. We were designed to be lights in this world, and see it change for the better.

We need to be our own person. We need to do our best and try our hardest to live original. True beauty doesn't come from the makeup we put on in the morning! True beauty comes from the heart! When we are beautiful on the inside, it will reflect on the outside.
