I have heard the coined phrase “Beauty is only skin deep,” multiple times throughout my life. I actually believed it too! That is, until I read a blog that changed how I view beauty.
“Once you know your identity […] nothing can take that light away from you. Nothing can take away your feeling of security. Nothing can take away the fact that you have a divine purpose here. And if THAT isn’t beautiful, I don’t know what is. Knowing this will literally transform your life – – even the way you look on the outside. It is the best way I know of to have physical beauty.”
The question is no longer ‘who is more beautiful’. The question is: Which of these two women truly understands who they are?
The woman in the top picture knows she is beautiful, you can tell by the way she holds herself, but does she know her true identity? The woman in the second picture, who is studying the scriptures and connecting with her Father in Heaven to come to know her divine potential, is radiating beauty; the confidence that comes from knowing who you truly are.
Clearly beauty is far from being “only skin deep”.
