Have you ever noticed how many beautiful bloggers there are out there? For me, I think the beauty of one's personality is the real determining factor in whether I find someone beautiful. Yes, there is external beauty, but if a pretty person has a nasty attitude toward everything, I do NOT find them beautiful. I do however think that a lovely personality can be seen shining through externally. Maybe I see so many gorgeous bloggers because they have such outgoing, positive, and encouraging personalities.
But that thought brought me to another question. Lot of bloggers post self-portraits. Do you think they see how beautiful they are? Do you see it in your own photos? I do not consider myself one of the beautiful bloggers I am writing about. I don't have the external beauty so much, and I am not sure if the beauty of my personality is able to shine through on my blog. I hope it is, but I just feel like there is so much of me that I am still unable to express. I know when I look at my own photos, I can point out about a hundred flaws in just one photo.
Is the key to feeling beautiful having confidence? Is it dressing yourself up to feel good? Is it just letting your happiness shine through? What is it that you find beautiful in your fellow bloggers?
I think something I need to work on is seeing my own beauty. If I cannot see myself as beautiful, even if it is in an unconventional way, then how can I expect anyone else to recognize it. I definitely need more confidence. I am trying to work on dressing myself up to feel good each day rather than being in sweats all the time. And I'm just going to let my happiness shine through.
Here is what I think we should all do today. Go visit a blogger that you think is beautiful and let her know. I think it will mean a lot to her to know you see the beauty that she shows on her blog.
