Each of us has our own idea of beauty. It can be an elusive thing to measure, because everyone has their own understanding and experience of it. In attempt to understand beauty on a deeper level, I’ve been doing some experimenting, trying to figure out what real beauty feels like?
I would like to invite you to try this experiment too. Ask yourself this question:
When do I feel beautiful?
In asking myself this question, I found there were varying degrees to the experience of beauty.
The first level is when someone else finds you attractive or beautiful, and you feel validated and assured that you are beautiful because they think so. This is great in the moment but the trouble with this is that your beauty is dependent on someone else’s opinion and it can be fleeting. It can also be exhausting to try to figure out what someone else will find beautiful so you can be beautiful in their eyes.
The next level of beauty (through my experiment) happened when I felt I was the most myself. When I felt in alignment with what is truly meaningful to me I noticed a rush of good feelings fill me up. When I am able to express the fullest version of myself I feel radiantly beautiful. It is the expression of myself that makes me feel beautiful!
This kind of beauty pulses through my entire body and it doesn’t matter who notices. Although it adds to the fun when someone else can experience it with me.
If you want to experience your own deep beauty ask yourself this question….
How can I express what is most meaningful to me?
Be your beauty, express yourself!
