Beauty, it isn't what you see when you look at a mirror. It isn't what you don't see when you fancy the celebrity teen on the magazine covers. It isn't what the most famous make-up designers tell you to wear.
Beauty is the sense you feel deep underneath all of you whether you're sitting in your room by yourself or in a crowd full of random people. It's the great inside feeling of pride you have in yourself when you've done good and made everyone proud. It's the feeling you get when your little brother or sister is smiling brightly at you for the help you gave them. It's the feeling you get after your mother or father compares you to the both of them and say, "You're so beautiful."
Beauty isn't meant to be set by how tall or short you are and how skinny or fat you look. It isn't the lipstick or eye-shadow Cosmo Girl tells you what's great on you. It isn't about the best flare jeans or the high-tops that Boys Life tells you looks great on you. It's not even about your own race or your own hair color.
Do you know what beauty is?! Do you know WHERE it is!? It is in YOUR heart! It is in YOUR words! It is in YOUR eyes! It is in YOUR own way!
Don't get me wrong here! I'm not trying to offend anyone in any way. I'm just trying to tell you that beauty is what is on the inside that no one can tell. Beauty is never on the outside where everyone can judge. Beauty is everyone's own thing in their own way! Don't listen to what everyone else tells you. They say wearing 'this' and 'that' is great. But is it worth it? Shouldn't you be the one to think about what's great and what isn't?
It isn't about getting plastic surgery or nose jobs and getting breast implants. It isn't about the latest fashion trend from the most famous fashion designers. It isn't about the purest makeup kits from the most expensive companies. It isn't which cap or beanie looks great on you. It isn't the best skateboard design that looks great with your outfit.
In summary, what I'm really trying to say is, don't waste your money, time, and effort on the magazine's you see at the store. This goes for everyone. Beauty isn't just in girls but in boys too! Think about you, what you have, and what your family's done for you. Look at yourself in the mirror and want to say, "Dang! I look like good!" Don't let other people tell you who you are and who you aren't. YOU are YOU! God made you that way and you shouldn't want to change it! So next time you see that Seventeen magazine, say, "Forget it. I don't need them. I'm my own me and NO ONE can change that."
