10 Reasons Why You’re More Beautiful Than You Realize
Last week Dove launched another one of their beauty campaigns, this one called '#ChooseBeautiful.' In honor of Dove reminding us that we should feel great, I figured I would show you 10 ways you're more beautiful than you think.
For Dove's latest focus on beauty (and showing us that no matter who we are or what we look like, we're beautiful), the company set up signs above doors right next to each other. The doors led into the same building, the only difference is one sign said "Beautiful" and the other said "Average." The results... well, they might make you tear up a bit.
Pretty powerful stuff, right?!
Anyway, in honor of the unique beauty everyone holds, here are ten ways you're more beautiful than you realize...
1 - The way you look is different from anyone else around. Even if you found your doppelganger (like Eric Meier did), there are still some slight differences in the way you look. Your unique look is beautiful.
2 - You have been through so much in your life - whether it was a move, loss of a loved one, or whatever, you have come so far and you're still moving along. No one has experienced your exact experiences, and that's what makes you beautiful.
3 - Your laugh is beautiful (even if you don't think it is, even if you heard otherwise). It is. Nothing is better than joy.
4 - You may not think of yourself as a creative person, but you are. Somehow, somewhere you have created something, imagined something, dreamed something. Creativeness is beautiful, and you're creative in your own way.
5 - No matter who you are, someone out there thinks you're perfect. Someone loves you for who you are, just the way you are, and wouldn't change a thing.
6 - You're intelligent. There's at least one part of life you excel in, whether you can cook well, know your geometry, or have great problem-solving skills - whatever it is, that makes you smart and brains are beautiful.
7 - At some point in your life you had to do something that you were afraid to do. You had to face your fear, and that is beautiful.
8 - You have your own unique thoughts, your own unique experiences, and your own unique life. Your uniqueness makes you beautiful, and it's what makes you, you!
9 - You exist. That's beautiful in itself. Life is a precious gift, and knowing that out of all the unknown in the world, you were created, and you turned out... well, as you - now that's beautiful.
10 - Happiness is beautiful. Even if you're having a bad day, or you don't feel the greatest - smile. Smiles show happiness, happiness is beautiful, and so your smile is beautiful.
If Dove has taught us anything, it's that we're all beautiful. Weight doesn't matter, skin color doesn't matter, height or body shape doesn't matter. None of that matters. Beauty really has more to do with the person, and their uniqueness than anything else. I think we all need to realize that and get a little more comfortable in our own skin.
