Beauty is as it does.

What is beauty? Who is beautiful? When does a little girl have the ability to conceptualize the meaning of beauty? Who are the influences to our daughters that will cause her to erase or deny her beauty? How much does beauty cost? Can beauty be bought, if so the how much are you willing to pay for beauty? Society plays a big role in how beauty is defined; be careful or you all will start to look the same.
  • The metric system plays into beauty; weigh this much NOT that!
  • The school system plays into beauty; learn this NOT that!
  • The church plays into beauty; love this one and NOT that!
  • Our neighbors play into beauty; you can live on this street but NOT that!
  • Our subconscious critic plays into beauty; wear your hair/clothes like this NOT that!
I could go on but I think you've gotten the point of it all. When do we begin to tell our daughters that they are the most beautiful girl in the whole world and no other can take that away from them, not tomorrow but today! Today go tell a girl child that she is amazingly made, perfectly selected, intentionally designed with awesome-ism, let her know that she was poured into a mold that no other can replicate duplicate obliterate or eradicate, tell her not tomorrow but today!
