10 things I’d rather be than “pretty”

Tough.pushing through the hard times, accepting criticism with an open heart and not being afraid to fight for what I believe in.

Passionate. because this fire is what fuels my energy and without passion there is no meaning.

Excited.to experience new things, to meet new people, to understand other perspectives and to embrace the unknown.

Confident.this force comes from within and completely controls the way we view ourselves and how those around us view the perspective we push out into the universe. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will either.

Reliable.this is something I expect from others, so I aim to give it to them first. Flakiness is for fools who don’t care enough.

Happy.selfish enough to follow my heart and to do what fulfills me while aiming to simultaneously produce the same feelings in those around me.

Grateful.appreciative of what I have because change is constant and I may not always be so fortunate.

Adventurous.life is too quiet without the thrill of an adrenaline rush.

Smart.actively seeking new information, reading lots of books and making each and everyday an opportunity to learn something I didn’t know before.

Thoughtful.making others feel good makes me feel good, which makes me happy and provides me with a glow that makes me more attractive than any makeup every could.

Seek beauty far below the surface.
