"You are beautiful, in every single way. Words can't bring you down."
Those words are so very important. Though we say words can't bring us down, they surely can. That one, somewhat joking, mean comment that you give or receive hurts. Even if you are joking. There's always a little truth in a joke. Without even knowing it we can ruin someone's whole day. Or we can make it better. I know for me when I go to the store and someone tells me things like, "I love your hair!" or "You're so pretty." or "You should be a model!" brighten my day. Think about how much happier we'd all be if we each gave two people those compliments a day. I know that I love making someone's day better. Even if it's just commenting on a blog, or photo on instagram, or something on Facebook. We can make people happy.
We need to all remember that we are ALL beautiful. Even if we don't feel that. We all have those days where we don't want to do ANYTHING. Trust me, I know. Even this week for school I didn't feel like getting up and looking cute. I wanted to wear jeans and t-shirts everyday. Which there is nothing wrong with! But you can't always look like a slob. ;) I did most of the days though...haha. ;) Anyway, we don't have to be all made up to be beautiful. We are always beautiful. We are beautiful because God made us in the image of Himself. We don't need to care what other people are constantly thinking, but what God thinks. We need to be pleasing to Him and glorify Him.
You are beautiful like this, with practically no makeup on.
As you are like this, with makeup on.
Go make someone's day and tell them that they are beautiful!
