“Beauty resides underneath the surface and
my beauty deepens as I choose to live a life in love.”
There is something beautiful about a person who lives in love. In order to maintain that disposition each day one has to choose to place others ahead of their self. For example, I choose to place my children’s needs before my own.
Many circumstances may tempt me to go after my own interests first, but I remind myself of my earthly role. I am here to be a source of compassion and love for my family and those around me.
Making others happy brings me fulfillment.
When I make a kind gesture to a stranger, my heart smiles. The act radiates from within my soul because my actions are genuine. It is easy to identify when the source of joy is more than skin deep.
I am committed to emanating that deep positivity.
Because it brightens the world around me.
My happiness becomes more than something that I see in a mirror. Whenever I feel less than beautiful, I choose to offer a hand instead of putting on makeup. I sense an immediate difference in my demeanor when I choose to give love. Isn’t that our purpose? To live a life of love.
As I am reminded during this first of my Self-Reflection posts, it is important to nourish your soul from within. As we do, our beauty on the inside projects outwards and causes the world around us to shine.
My goal is to share a piece of my joy with each person I meet.
Love will remain in abundance when we continue to give it away.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps not record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 NIV
- What are some experiences that enrich my life?
- How do I show love to strangers who I meet each day?
- How do I know when it is time to nourish my soul?
