In a society obsessed with eye candy, Dove’s Real Beauty Sketches remind women that they’re more beautiful than they think…
…and BuzzFeed warns us to be careful what we wish for…
…but even more inspiring is Wacoal’s advertising campaign. It veers off onto the less-traveled path of appreciating inward beauty.
When time permits, treat yourself to the three wonderfully written and filmed vignettes below. Each reminds us that true beauty lies on the inside.
CAbi clothing company’s founder and president Kimberly Inskeep writes that Everyone Is a Beautiful Story, “The comparison game and perfectionism do not lead us to anything helpful. We think they are about improvement, but they’re really about approval. The truth is, those with wonderfully satisfying relationships do not seek approval, but are intentional with others purely for the sake of relationship. Intentionality is born out of a purpose to be about something bigger than ourselves. When we let go of the desire to be perfect, and connect more genuinely with others, the beautiful irony is that while we discover a truth and beauty in others, we discover it in ourselves, too. Our lives tell a bigger story of being a woman on purpose.”
Author Karen Swallow Prior penned another perspective in We Can’t All Be Beautiful, “…whatever beauty we see in ourselves or others is but a reflection of the One who is true Beauty.”
