Originality is Beautiful. {Guest Hadley Willson} Homeschool Teen

Hadley Willson Beautiful

To all the girls out there:

Society is wrong. Dead wrong.

We’re taught that fake is beautiful. We’re taught to believe that miniature waists, and perfect tans are beautiful. We’re convinced that the blondehadly3 girls with the gorgeous smiles will win every time.

But, the truth is?

Originality is beautiful. 

Big brown eyes, green eyes, blue eyes. Curves. Your natural skin tone is beautiful. Your hair color, your smile. Your voice, your laugh, your personality. Every inch of YOU is beautiful, every single part of you shines with your essence.

You, my dear? You’re beautiful.

We all have it: a little voice inside that tries to hold us back. It tells us not to say what we feel so we won’t make any waves. It tells us not to define what we want so that things can stay predictably easy. It tells us not to go for our dreams because we may not be good enough.
It may also tell us that it’s selfish to focus on our own desires and goals – that good people are more concerned with giving than getting. But giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin. And sometimes the best thing we can give to others is a reminder that we all deserve to live passionate, fulfilling, engaged lives and we all have the capacity to do it.

So today, let your light shine.

Make your own needs and wants priorities. Make time for the things you love to do, even if they feel silly, or superficial, or extravagant. If it’s within your means to do it, and it doesn’t hurt anyone, don’t worry about justifying – just enjoy! Use your gifts and talents in the way you want to use them – not the way you think you should. Speak directly from your heart, without fear of reproach. If you believe in something, stand behind it, even if you stand alone. Keep your heart open to the world around you so you can be moved and inspired – and then use that internal illumination to create something that will move and inspire the people around you.

Play. Laugh. Dance. Love.

And remember that you have nothing to prove.

hadley willsonThere’s nothing you have to do, and there’s no one you have to be other than exactly who you are, because who you are is beautiful. Who you are is full of light and the world deserves to see it ♥

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring. All of which have the potential to turn a life around. Remember, these are the keys that fit the locks on everyone’s heart.
Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined.

Hadley is a teen who inspires me  ( Michelle ). She is a hardworking homeschool teen who has overcome many obstacles with grace. I often hear her words of wisdom and was thrilled that she would share with us!

If you are a teen struggling with your beauty know this:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder Creator!

Psalm 45:11 NIV, The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord.

You are God’s masterpiece, His perfect creation. Yes, even with glasses, braces, or extra pounds, He sees you as His beautiful creation, a work of art. Your appearance and your achievements do not define you. What defines you is the fact that you are His child. You were created by God with the purpose to worship God. Our culture tells us to obsess over our outer looks so we will be noticed. God made you an individual.  So you blossom into the person He designed you to be. Every time you compare yourself to others you will not feel beautiful. In faith, see yourself through His grace. Your true beauty will glow from within for others to see.

 

UntitledYour beauty, your value, your identity is not in the approval of others’ words but in the actions of Jesus. He gave His life because He loves you. Through His sacrifice, God sees you as perfect.

xoxo Michelle

  2. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to
    see a nice blog like this one these days.

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your site.
    You have some really good posts and I believe
    I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write
    some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please send me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!

  4. It’s actually a great and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you just shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing. dbedfdgddeef

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be actually something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

Share some JOY!
