“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief she is beautiful.” – Sophia Loren
As a child, if someone told you that you were pretty or sweet, or smart, in all likelihood you would not have spent a second questioning the truth of that. However as adults, somehow we allow our mirrors to get warped. We see what we are not instead of all that we are. And even when those who love us tell us of our beauty (inner or outer) we attribute it to love, and not truth.
Today, this day, stand in front of your mirror. Choose not to leave until you remember why you are beautiful. Thank God for having made you so. Even a cactus can bloom a flower. Surely you have a flower within you.
*Author’s Note: I have a number of blogs, and frankly, I’m sick of maintaining them all. I will be phasing out the Fix Your Mirror blog, and integrating the content from that blog (self-help and inspiration) here.
