When I was younger, I used to pray to God to make me so beautiful on the inside that it would show through to my outside beauty. I just believed, and still do, that the inside of us counts for so much more than the outside ever could.
People’s beauty – it’s like a rock. And I know, most rocks look common and bland, right? And although some are more appealing than others depending on the shape, or maybe a slight difference in color, they usually aren’t that special.
However, when we cut a rock open, when we peek to the inside, sometimes our view of the rock changes completely. Sure, some rocks look the same as they did on the outside, but others – when we've cut them open – it’s like we’ve discovered our own personal rainbow; a crystal filled light. And that’s what inside beauty is. It’s something that is often so beautiful that we suddenly forget what the outside really looked like in the first place.
A lot of us - we wish we could change our looks. We want to have curly hair, or straight hair, maybe grow taller, or have a different shape. Perhaps we want to have brown or blue eyes, or maybe we want look more exotic or just different. However, even though this might not seem fair, we’re so exceedingly lucky because, even though we can’t change how we look on the outside, we can change our beauty on the inside.
And amazingly, my prayer came true - that inside beauty – it usually does show through to the outside ;)
