The way I look on the inside is much more important to me than the way I appear on the outside. Inner beauty transcends style; it deals with the heart. I give more thought to my behavior than I do my looks because my behavior defines my true beauty.
Just as I fix my hair and dress my body to look presentable each day, I also devote time to self-reflection. I give thought to the choices I make and determine in my heart to increase in grace each day.
When I choose my friends, I do it based on inner beauty because therein lies a personâ€™s true worth. I choose to spend my time with people who are pleasant to speak to because they genuinely care about me. I stay away from people who constantly criticize others to make themselves look better.
I am wise enough to discern between people who look good from people who truly are good. The way a person looks is unable to affect the way I feel about them. I refrain from judging people by their outward appearance.
I seek to get to know people through conversation before drawing conclusions about them. There is much more depth to me than the clothes I wear or the way I style my hair. I appreciate when people give me a chance to be myself; therefore I do the same for others.
Today, I choose to look beyond the physical outward appearance of others to discover new depth in those around me.
