Audrey Hepburn once said, “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” Every woman can learn from this icon of femininity about the inherent beauty that happiness imparts. Becoming the most beautiful you that you can be demands feeling good on the inside, as well as on the outside.
A comforting space can give you exactly what you need to stay centered, focused, balanced and happy. Small daily routines provide outstanding opportunities to practice a little self-indulgence, just as a reminder of how special and beautiful you really are. Light a scented candle nearby as you perform some daily task; turn it into a ritual of well-being and affirmation of self-worth, even if it’s nothing more than sorting the laundry.
Expect the best from yourself and your environment; being beautiful is about taking good care of yourself through small daily rituals and creating your own unique moments of happiness. Your inner beauty comes from being happy with yourself and it is a light that can touch everyone around you. It’s easy to maintain, reflect and magnify that light when you have the right atmosphere (and wonderfully scented candles).
Creating a warm, beautiful, inviting home is essential to your sense of well-being and happiness. The atmosphere with which you choose to surround yourself reveals much about what’s important to you. Your home is a reflection of yourself; its beauty is largely derived from the happiness and pride you put into it. If you are happy within yourself, your home will reflect that. True beauty comes with self-love and self-acceptance.
