Beauty Is Only Skin Deep

Physical beauty is superficial. Unfortunately, contrary to what some people believe. . . We as individuals are NOT responsible for what we happen to come out (literally) looking like. In other words, (Thank God.) we have nothing to do with what's on the outside other than keeping it up...or not. What truly matters is what dwells on the inside; character, personality, soul, heart, etc. . . My point is, confidence is understandable & without a doubt reasonable because there is no reason anyone should have a lack of self esteem whether their issue is within or without. However, our piece of work or masterpiece is what makes the difference & what we can take pride in because that has everything to do with us as individuals. As a matter of fact, our parents are 100% liable for how we came into the world. Therefore, thank them! (Or, don't.) So, make the best of YOU. You're a total package! Act like it. Beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them. Live up to your name. Give the haters something to talk about. Make them proud! (Remember. Haters only allow you to realize you're on the right path & that you're doing something right. Without them, I'd worry.) Take responsibility & do you to the best of your abilities. Don't just be beautiful on the outside, but take action to better yourself from within. You owe it to yourself. Remember, actions speak louder than words. Do unto others as you would have or want others to do unto you. Respect is paid where it is due. It is one thing to say this & say that, but a complete difference when one just does or is. Don't contradict yourself. It's not a good look. Sometimes, life can & will get the best of us. That doesn't mean we don't have the ability or option or changing it or switching up. Like Nike, "Just Do IT."

Be blessed.
