Beauty (and our view of it) is constantly morphing…
Sometimes this makes me thankful, and other times…. not so much.
One day, Facebook goes from being covered with comments such as “Time to starve while watching the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” to the next day being covered in YouTube videos inspiring women to be/men to wait for “Proverbs 31 Women.”
But it can go from good to bad, too.
This is a trap I, and the majority of other women, get caught in day after day. What is true beauty? We all want to look good on the outside, but that first takes a lot of work on the inside. I hope we remember on the days we feel not so Victorias Secret-esqe that the Lord of Lords himself is in awe of our beauty.
As we enter into this new year full of new resolutions (or just old, failed resolutions that will definitely not fail this year;)), let’s keep a positive focus. Would focusing on being a Proverbs 31 woman above all else bring us closer to the beautiful woman we want to see on the outside? I think just maybe.
P.S. Here’s a quote I read on a friend’s website that really got me thinking:
I’ve got to remember to slow down. Embrace each moment. It is another year, whether the resolutions fail or not.
Praying for each of you in 2012,
