Who is the most beautiful woman you know? My guess is that you can answer that quickly, but perhaps not with just one face, not just one woman. We are all blessed to know some BEAUTIFUL women in our lives. But do they know they are beautiful? Do they know that you see them that way? Have you ever told these women what you see in them?
As this question has been playing around in my own mind, I have considered that it might be important for me to tell the beautiful women in my life how beautiful they are in my eyes. The beautiful women in my life are not supermodels in the worldy sense, but they are super to me, and they are models to me. I think it might be important for me to let them know the beauty I see in them. I think it might be even more powerful for me to tell them in "public".
And I think it might be a good idea for you to do the same with the beautiful women in your life.
So it's time for a beauty challenge! But a different kind of beauty challenge!
I'm proposing that we begin a beauty challenge on social media. I'm guessing FB will work best for me as that's where I spend most of my social media time. But any social media site can work. I'm proposing that we share beauty and love, rather than the hate and gossip that is too easily spread on these sites.
I challenge you to:
* Get on your favorite social media site.
* Write a post calling out a handful of the most beautiful women in your life.
* TAG THEM IN THE POST!
* Write a quick note as to what you see as beautiful in them.
* If possible attach a pic of them (that could mean a handful of different pics, which is fine).
* Here's the kicker: CHALLENGE THEM TO THEN TAG A HANDFUL OF BEAUTIFUL WOMEN IN THEIR LIVES TO CONTINUE THE BEAUTY CHALLENGE
If you feel inspired, please tag the post #JLPBeautyChallenge I would be so encouraged and inspired to see this challenge spread love and joy to all the beautiful women out there. If we can encourage just one woman in our lives, pour love into one heart, remind one precious lady of her beauty, then what a wonderful success this would be.
Please be encouraged to share this blog post to challenge women AND men in your life. Let's get men calling out beautiful women, too.
I'll be posting my challenge on FB for sure, but I'll gladly call out the beautiful women in my life right here.
1. My Daughter, Brady
She's not on social media (yet), but her beauty goes beyond her pretty face. Her beauty shines from her heart. She loves big.
2. My Mother, Mary Jane
She's always been my ideal beauty- blue eyes and blonde hair. But what I find most beautiful about her is how much joy she gets from caring for others. She has a giving heart.
3. My Mother-In-Law, Carol
I don't think I've ever known someone who finds the good in everyone the way Carol does. What makes her most beautiful is that she sees beauty in everyone and everything. It's inspiring.
4. My Sister-In-Law, Tara
Tara has been my sister forever. To me, her beauty lies in how happy it makes me to just be with her. She makes everyone feel better for having spent time with her. She's like fresh air.
5. My Sister-In-Law, Dani
Dani is most beautiful when she's mothering. Watching her with her own kids- or with mine- her beauty pours over the little people she loves. She's an amazing nurturer.
6. My Niece, Hannah
This one is tough, because I honestly see so much beauty in Hannah. She's young, but she's wise. She knows what real beauty means. She's so much more than her gorgeous looks. Her beauty goes deep.
OK, now it's your turn! Who are the beautiful women in your life? Do they know? Why not tell them today?
