‘Tis the time of selfies and profile/display pictures!
Congratulations, you have a girl!
Oh wow, she likes just like her mom, look at her eyes, long lashes, and her long fingers, she might be an artist.
Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, it was said. I disagree. Beauty lies inside a person, hence, it lies in knowing the person.
I had an article published in a popular city magazine recently. I received compliments from friends and family all around the world, but what we they praising? My picture, how I looked or how the light on my hair made it look so lovely. Practically, no one read my article and commented on that.
Men feel that complimenting women on their looks is all that they need.
No sir, not real women. We work on our inner strengths more than our make up everyday.
Women with intelligence know to redirect themselves and others, they stand up for what they feel is right and will fight till the end for their values. They have no time to go window shopping or watching YouTube videos on makeup skills.
Start empowering your kids with focus on their inner strength and beauty.
Praise them for their efforts, hardworking attitude, getting things done. Do not praise their looks.
Teach them that outside beauty is temporary and also, not within our control. But, inner beauty is permanent and definitely up to us to create.
A 5 year old child once told me, " we all have a small God within us and when we do good things to others, it gets bigger and spreads". Whether one believes in God or not, let’s make the goodness inside us shine, so it spreads it’s light outside and makes us look divine.
