Plastic Vs China

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows.

The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.

~Audrey Hepburn

We’ve all met someone who was outwardly pretty but as we got to know them, they became gorgeous.

We’ve also met someone who is gorgeous but as you get to know them they became less, and less beautiful.

What is true beauty? What makes us beautiful?

“Outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates.”
~ Kate Angell

Beauty is found in our character and personalities. When we’re kind, honest, gentle, loving, happy, generous, genuine, real, confidence etc. We becomes more and more beautiful. This is the kind of person we want to spend our time with and become. They make us better for knowing them. I’m not saying to use them but they just seem to bring the good out, in us all. This kind of person is like China, handcrafted, hand painted and unique.

 

Outer beauty without inner beauty, is vain and empty, pointless. This idea that being perfect on the outside is what matters, is wrong. When we allow ourselves to believe this, we’re failing ourselves every time. Plastic beauty is meaningless and will never last. It’s shallow, disposable, fake, selfish, unkind, dishonest, rude etc. When we only focus on our outward appearance we will lose our inner selves.

We need to find a happy middle. Every china tea cup is different, some are painted, others are simple, others have beauty marks. They are each beautiful, different and unique. Each cup has a different story to tell.

We can be beautiful on the inside and just as beautiful on the outside. We all need to take care of our bodies and take time to look our best but it’s not the most important thing in the world. God, people, our souls are what’s important. Remember everyone is different and that’s okay. We all have different stories. We are each beautiful and wonderful!

Smile, there’s always hope! Have a wonderful day my fellow beauty kings and queens.
