Losing it

We talk so much about how to be beautiful on the outside — use this cream to make your hair irresistibly soft; eat this food to lose your belly fat; buy this dress to look fabulous — but we rarely focus on what's more important: inner beauty.


Here is a list of things that make you (yes, you!) beautiful on the inside.

Being able to laugh at yourself

Getting out of bed (even on Mondays)

Not caring whether other people like you

Being grateful for everyone who helped you get where you are

Being passionate about learning

Letting other cars in your lane even when it's super traffic-y

Making hard choices

Having the strength to do something no one else is doing

Smiling at strangers

Including someone even when you don't feel like talking to anyone

Not allowing your mistakes and flaws to define you

Having goodwill for someone who's hurt you

Forgiving yourself

Being crazy excited for something because you're so passionate about it

Having a good attitude when there's nothing to have a good attitude about

Having the ability to create

Really caring about what other people have to say

Having good manners


Being flexible

Doing the right thing even when no one will know

Having goals

Sticking to your standards

Loving people who can't give you anything in return (even love)

Accepting people's differences

Loving yourself unconditionally
