Women, including me, often struggle with our sense of beauty. A friend kept telling me I was beautiful when I’d be forgiving or gracious to the ex-boyfriend. I didn’t understand it. Then I started to learn about beauty. I contemplated my definition beauty. As I journaled I was enlightened and a whole new perspective opened up to me.
Define what beauty is to you. What does beauty do? How does it feel? Think of someone you consider beautiful inside and out – what qualities do they possess?
