I am working on the whole "what does it mean to be beautiful?" question in my head. So with some verses in mind (Prov. 31:30; 1 Peter 3:3-4) I am trying to let go of some of the outward things that I have begun to define as beautiful.
I wanted to let you in on the experiment:
No makeup and minimal jewelry until orthodox easter.
The hope is that if I purposely let go of distracting superficial things I can focus on the things that really are beautiful in myself and around me. As I understand more beauty within myself I will then be better able to see the beauty in others and in creation.
So that is the plan.
