Do you feel beautiful on the inside?
In this world there is such a focus on what we see on the outside – there’s consistent judgement of how we look and the ways we move. The presence of judgment is dominant and social media plays a large role in feeding power towards it. I’ve found that it’s very easy for me to get stuck looking at others posts, seeing their beautiful Instagram stories or perfectly edited posts. And I don’t believe I’m alone in this habit! It sometimes can feel easier to sit and scroll than to turn the phone off and get work done! And I truly would deem this as habitual for all of us with access to the social media world! We can be so wrapped up in the online world, our reality may get blurred. The way we see ourselves can be altered as if our eyes aren’t seeing as clearly as before. You may be much more inclined to automatically think about the things you wish you could change or improve on yourself – rather than saying anything nice at all. What I’m trying to say, is – with such focus on our exterior form, I always like to find confidence in the true strength from the inside, instead. I wanted to create this blog post to start a discussion, something very simple – but important!
What do you love about who you are?
None of the external aspects like we are used to, I’m asking what makes you you? Are you caring? Funny? Encouraging to others? Creative? What makes you you, and what makes you feel confident about yourself?
If you struggle to answer, think about how others might view you and go from there. I guarantee someone thinks with admiration for you – whether you know it or not. Even if you have your own blog on this site, your readers will already have their opinions and I bet you have already made some beautiful impressions.
I like to see the people in this world, as if we all are wearing a different pair of glasses. Some see things differently, through their own prescription – from their own perspective. Some lenses may be darkened, due to experiences or troubles. Others may be brighter, and others may be just in between. Not everyone will think highly of us individually, but that’s because they have their own set of glasses on – and that’s less to do with who you are – and more to do with who they are. In this post, if you can get behind my odd glasses’ symbolism! I’m asking about your glasses – through your lenses, your eyes – what do you see in yourself?
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post, I hope you found it interesting and enjoyed some of my words! Please do discuss in the comments if you have anything you’d like to say on this post! I truly appreciate you reading my blog. If no one has told you today – take time to give yourself and those you love some praise and care. Love Maria x
