The women today are possessed by the ideal of achieving the right look. For that they channel their energies into attaining the right kind of body.
This whole focus on the physical beauty is a testament to the lengths that we can go in order to please others. All these notions were articulated by the legendry Marilyn Monroe when she stated that Boys think girls are like books, if the cover doesn't catch their eye they won't bother to read what's inside.
However the fact is that if the story is dull and boring even if the cover is catchy then it is not going to retain the place on your bookshelf. The same goes for people. While you might be able to attract the crowd with your beautiful appearance, if you do not have a charming personality then you will lose this crowd quickly. It is your inner beauty which should appeal to the people and draw them to you.
If you spend half as much time on improving your inner self as you do on polishing your external appearance you are going to gain a personality; but more importantly you are going to win the people who will stick around you in all seasons. They will help you in your time of trouble and will aid you whenever you feel you are on your way down.
This does not mean that you should not pay attention to your physical health and appearance but it is necessary to maintain that subtle balance between the outer look and your refined inner self. Whatever kind of personality you may have, it is necessary to be confident in your skin. If you are self-assured and poised in yourself, you will automatically gain an aura of self-assurance that will set you apart from the crowd.
The old adage Beauty is in the heart is so right. A pretty face is no more attractive if you find that the person has been dishonest and lied to you. On the contrary the light that emanates from the person who is righteous can outshine the plain personality that she or he might have.
It is far more necessary to be caring, helpful, gentle, considerate, truthful, honest, reliable, confident and happy than it is to be beautiful and attractive. Let your inner beauty shine through!!!
