Beauty (only skin deep?)

Who do you consider more beautiful?


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”.


About Jaxon

I am a spiritual being here to have mortal experiences. I believe in love. Not the love that can be fit in three words: I love you, but in the love that radiates from a couple who cherish one another more than life itself. I believe in love as it has been intended to be: eternal. I believe in progress. Learning from life, love, books, people and inspiration should be a daily experience. There is something incredible about a person who strives to be their best self. I believe in pursuing dreams. Mortality only happens once and is too short to simply sit back and allow it to pass you by. Goals, dreams and those who join in the pursuit of those dreams are what live worth while. I believe in being happy! True happiness is not found. It is a choice. The moment life is seen as being beautiful and is deeply appreciated, the easier it is to choose to be happy. I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior, my King and my Friend. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and living His truth is key to my happiness and existence.
