So in essence, it is important for many of us to have a beautiful outwardly appearance, but the only appearance people will truly remember when we are gone is the mark we left on the world. What type of mark will you leave on the world? It is never too late to start working towards leaving the world in as positive a place that you may be able to make it. Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself; no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are completely; the good and the bad and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Beauty might bring happiness, but happiness always brings beauty.
Happiness is the art of never holding in your mind the memory of any unpleasant thing that has passed. The way that the world functions today, we tend to think that our beauty is made up solely of the person that we see when we look in the mirror. Little do we realize our beauty is made up of the person that we are inside, not the person that we are on the outside. If we only allow people in our lives that only appreciate us for our beauty on the outside, we will never have real friendships or love.
There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will. With that being said, the way we feel about the image we present to the world can greatly affect our confidence and the way we deal with people. Some of us may think that we weight too much, some of us may think our nose is too big or that our eyes are too wide. Too overcome this we have to challenge society, and tell ourselves that despite whatever everyone else says we know that we are beautiful. Try not avoiding the mirrors and every morning after you wash your face and every night before you go to bed, look in the mirror and tell yourself out loud that you are beautiful! Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
