True Beauty


The magazines showing women with stunning figures and flawless skin, visually assaulted me. These women instead of inspiring, made me go into pits of self-doubt.

As I was wallowing in self-pity, I saw her teach dance to some kids.

I looked at her from afar. Despite her physical flaws and imperfections, there was something mesmerizing about her.

As I gawked at her, I realized that behind those bright eyes and dazzling smile, it was her inner light that shone so bright.

Without a word she taught me an important lesson on why she looked most beautiful.

Beauty comes from within.
