After a week full of bad news, I think we all need a positive perspective. Those of you who are on social media often might have seen this video, but if you haven’t it’s definitely worth a watch. A forensic artist draws sketches of several women both of how they see themselves and how others see them. The result is really quite moving!
Too often we neglect our emotional needs and let our self esteem suffer. In a world that is so focused on physical appearance, we tend to let that be the driving force of how we see ourselves. That isn’t the case though, as the video showed inner beauty is what defines our outer beauty, not the other way around.
As Gandhi had said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I think we all want the world to be beautiful, radiant, and kind. Let’s all make sure to give ourselves that same attention and see the beauty within ourselves! Then we can let that shine in our work in interfaith, our families, friends, and everywhere else in our lives. Let your inner beauty define you and your world!
