Beautiful Inside And Out: How Is It Really Done???

Posted: March 23, 2010 in Beauty


We’ve all heard that line a thousand times.  Most people agree with it.  Lots of people want to achieve it.  But how is it really done?  How does one become beautiful not only on the outside but also from the inside?  What does being “beautiful inside and out” truly mean?

Simply put, whatever your concept is of right and wrong, put that into practice and that will serve as the foundation of your inner beauty!  However, not  every one of us grew up in the right environment therefore we differ in our understanding of what is considered morally, ethically and socially right or wrong behaviors.  So we’ll give you some rules of thumb that could serve as your guide in your journey towards discovering and nurturing your inner beauty, until it radiates from the inside out.  One thing we’re gonna try not to be in this blog post is to be “preachy”.  The last thing on our mind is to sound like Dr. Phil.  So we’ll do our best to simplify the whole point:

  • Treat Others As You Would Have Them Treat You! – We know that many people tend to exaggerate this.  Of course, this doesn’t mean that just because you decided to treat yourself to a spa, that it means you’re gonna have to treat five of your friends to the spa as well.  Come on! Although that really would be nice, not every one can afford to do that! This pertains more to the words “RESPECT” and “COMPASSION”.  Have a genuine respect for other people–respect their privacy, respect their property or belongings, respect their opinions, respect their feelings–just as you would like your privacy, your property, your opinions and your feelings respected.  Compassion on the other hand is the absence of selfishness.  When you start thinking more about another person’s well being than your own, that’s compassion.   Begin caring for others the way you would hope to be cared for.  It’s as simple as that!
  • Learn How To Zip It! – If you’ve got nothing good to say about a particular person, then don’t say a word.  Being glamorous is also synonymous to “good breeding” so you shouldn’t be caught gossiping ’cause gossiping ain’t glamorous nor classy at all!
  • Learn How To Say “Sorry” – Admitting that you’re wrong when you know you’re wrong and sincerely apologizing for it is a highly admirable quality because it shows humility, and humility is one of the strongest foundation of inner beauty.
  • Watch What’s Coming Out Of Your Mouth In Public – We’re not suggesting that you pretend to be somebody you’re not, or to suppress your emotions, but wisdom is also the beginning of beauty.   Here are some things you should never talk about in public especially where other people can hear you: your sexual activities, dirty jokes, things or people that are driving you insanely angry, other people’s flaws, handicap or disabilities (unless you’re talking about your desires to help or reach out to them), financial crisis or bankruptcy, your husband’s or boyfriend’s affair, your own (extra marital) affair!
  • Have A Genuine Appreciation For Your Life, No Matter What You’re Going Through – We know this is probably easier said than done but if you really wanna develop that inner beauty, this must be done!  Begin by analyzing what it is about your life that makes you feel dissatisfied about it.  It will help if you list them all down.  Next to that list, begin listing down the things you are grateful for, and next to that, the things that you are still hopeful about.  This must be followed by a choice to focus on the good things you do have and that “hope” that something better is yet to come (and WILL SURELY come!), rather than the “disappointments of the present”.  Once you start believing that each day brings you closer to the things you hope for, you will have more zest about your life, you will always face each day with a HUGE SMILE on your face, and people will begin to notice that glow about you, and that glow will light up your entire being and aura!

So there you go! This will surely be the start of your journey to becoming a better you so go and Get Glamorous Now!
