And you know what? That's so true.
Beauty comes from so many things. There's the obvious -- external beauty -- but what's so much more important and valued (or should be) is the beauty of the soul. And that kind of beauty is hard to fake. I rarely wear makeup, but when someone does it for me, I can look really good. However, there's not enough makeup in the world to cover up a rotten character.
It's never too late to choose a word for the year -- no need to wait for New Year's Eve to make resolutions or choose a word, right?
So I'm going to claim this word as my own.
I'm determined to be easier on myself.
I'm determined not to let what some think of me get me down.
I'm determined to be the best I can be and not judge myself against others.
I'm determined to find at least one positive thing every day, even in the midst of my worst hours.
I'm determined to live a full life.
What's your word?
(Your comments mean so much -- thank you!)
