What if I told you that everything you believed about the definition of beauty from this day so far wasn’t true. What if I dared to show you the truth about the word beauty and how it can change the way you look at your own beauty, self-worth, and uniqueness.
When you look up the definition of beauty (dictionary.com) it is defined as the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest)
Today we mostly use the word beauty to describe a physical attribute of a woman. The very industry for beauty is all inclusive of external items used to enhance the physical appearance. When we think of a beautiful woman, we often think of a woman on the cover of a magazine or a billboard. We are inundated daily with media in our culture telling us what beauty looks like and what we need to buy in order for us to be the vision they created.
We are what we believe. If we believe that beauty is just our physical attributes then we are missing out on all of the other attributes that are included in the definition of our unique beauty.
Beauty is not just what is pleasant to the eye, beauty is so much deeper than just the surface level. Beauty is what gives intense pleasure and deep satisfaction to the mind. Beauty is multi-dimensional. Beauty is an experience coming from all sensory manifestations.
What if I told you that your beauty is your worth? What if I told you that the very definition of beauty is why you are valuable? Sounds confusing… right? I remembered when I first got this revelation, I thought the very same thing. How can my self-worth be my beauty?
Listen to this statement, does it resonate with you?
Beauty is the self-worth of a woman and includes the totality of a woman. All of a woman’s attributes that uniquely define her such as her personality, gifts, skills, talents, character, her unique qualities like her laugh, her mannerisms, her voice, her natural scent, the look in her eyes, her purpose, her ethnicity, her gender, her age, her life experience and on and on and on.
Do you agree with this statement?
Do you believe that you hold the key to unlock the most radiant unique beauty this world has ever experienced just by allowing yourself to be you as you were created?
So what happens when a woman truly understands her beauty from this perspective? She will know what makes her uniquely beautiful.
Yes, you heard me correctly. Your unique beauty will transform the world because it isn’t about you and it surely isn’t about vanity. Your beauty is your self-worth and value and it wasn’t created for you it was created to give value to the world. Your beauty was created to serve others.
Sounds crazy right?
The world loses out when you let your beauty die. When you fail to give your beauty life, the world loses out. We can’t go another day without the world experiencing your beauty radiating on them day in and day out.
Beauty is not heavily weighted on the external contrary to popular belief. A woman’s beauty is her self-worth and value, it is all of her, everything included. Beauty is holistic.
Stay tuned this month on the blog as I uncover more on this thought as I took a time of isolation, prayer, and meditation to ask God what is my beauty? I can’t wait to share with you what was revealed to me.
Love in abundance,
