When you look into a fashion magazine it can seem that beauty only comes in one form. All of those women on the glossy pages look eerily similar. But moms are wise enough to realize that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Most moms (and other women) do not look like fashion models but the little eyes that look up at her think she is beautiful no matter what. Her beauty is not just in what they see, but is in who she really is.
Our society would have us believe that the average mom who is trying to shed those last ten pounds of baby weight is not as beautiful as Hollywood actresses are. What is even sadder is that many moms have come to believe this too! Positively Beautiful Moms are taking back the concept of beauty. They fully embrace the fact that true beauty is more than a hairstyle, dress size, or number on a scale.
True beauty is embracing who you are. It is appreciating your talents and using them to be a blessing to everyone around you, especially the little ones who leave banana on your black pants (what my sister refers to as “baby blessings”). It is staying positive. True beauty is unconditional love, gentle honesty, and inner joy.
Beautiful moms know that you don’t need a personal trainer, professional hairdresser, and a make-up artist to be a lovely human being. They are beautiful by loving those around them and caring for them with a smile on their face (most of the time anyway!). Beautiful moms are able to generously give to others but know how to balance selflessness with their own personal needs for rejuvenation.
If can be hard to harmonize the never-ending demands of your family with the need to be a distinctly individual woman. Many women feel selfish for even considering their own needs. But beautiful moms learn that in order to be their best for their families, they must feed their souls, care for their bodies, and rejuvenate their spirits.
Teaching the next generation what it means to be a beautiful woman, positively beautiful moms are revolutionizing society, raising their daughters to develop inner as well as outer beauty, and their sons to value truly beautiful women.
