THE GUTS OF THE STORY
Appearance is important to everyone. It’s one tool to help build something even more important. Not one single person on earth is perfect. Everyone has flaws. Most of them are never noticed by anyone other than the person themselves.
Consider your appearance. Don’t dwell on perfection. Perfection is an illusion. If you feel confident and good about yourself, no one will notice tiny imperfections you alone see in yourself. Brush those babies aside. Appreciate yourself for the incredible, unique individual you are.
We all have traits that set us apart and that are beautiful. Focus on making them the highlight of your appearance. Make those traits shine. Take care of yourself. Eat right. Exercise. Care for your skin and hair, as you do your body.
Too much emphasis on physical appearance can rob us from realizing what is even more important—self-confidence. The person we choose to share with the world is the deep-down, strong person inside each of us.
Appearance is the cover. Personality and self-confidence are what’s inside—the guts of the story. The essence of who we really are is what is important—the true identity.
Love yourself for who you are. Share yourself with those you choose to let into your life. Enjoy life.
