A Post on Beauty (from my Tumblr blog)

The following “article” was written by me a month ago and was posted in my former Tumblr blog. I just thought of sharing it here on my blog as well. Hope you could find inspiration in my simple words. ☺

I have a confession to make.
I hate my nose.
Pango e.
I’ve always wondered how I would look like kung matangos siya.
Naisip ko rin na kung naging ibang nationality/race kaya ako, like, Caucasian, e di blonde or redhead sana ako. ‘Tas blue, green, or purple yung mata ko…
Tas sexy, mas matangkad. Lahat na ng wala ako, hinangad kong minsan at minsan hinahangad pa rin.
Then one day, I stared at my mom. I saw the same pango nose and understood the love in the passing of that trait to me.
Hindi naman dapa ang ilong ko, so why fuss about it?
I have brownish black hair and dark brown eyes. I love those parts of me now.
My body wasn’t built to look sexy even if I go on a diet. But so what? It’s fully functioning anyway.
I’m not tall, so I have the privilege to be called petite. 🙂
Beauty radiates when you’re comfortable in your own skin.
It’s when you have fully accepted all your flaws and appreciated what God has given you.
It’s when you focus on having a beautiful heart that loves and is ready to give and forgive all the time.
Makeup and clothes are must-haves for any girl who wants to be outwardly beautiful.
But isn’t it better to have a mind madeup that you would always follow God’s will?
Isn’t it better to have a life clothed by the Spirit?
“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” – Sophia Loren
Bawat babae dapat paniwalaan ito.
Bawat babae dapat maniwala sa nanay o tatay nila pag sinabihan siyang, “Anak, ikaw ang pinakamagandang dowter *daughter* sa mundo.”
Dahil maging ang Ama na nasa langit mismo nagsasabi, “Ang ganda-ganda talaga ng anak Ko.”
Lantad lahat sa Kanya ang nasa puso mo.
Kaninong opinyon ba ang mahalaga sa ‘yo? Yung Kanya o sa tao?

  1. im loving this blog! go girl!
    hey nobody's perfect… but we all are perfect in our own way. no matter how pretty you are kung marami kang naaapakan, you will always be a monster in the eyes of many.

  2. @AllThingsGirly Yes. I just got tired of pointing out my flaws all the time. I just stopped criticizing everything I see in the mirror and told myself, “Hey, God took time to create you and to Him what He made is lovely. So don't worry so much about the way you look.”

    @Dazzler Thank you very much for your words. I haven't blogged for a long time, so it all feels new to me again. And my previous blog was personal so I wasn't keen on interacting with other bloggers back then. I'm working on that, having a pure heart! You take care too. 😀

    @Faye Of course! I think God wants her princesses to put their best faces forward. I'm a late bloomer sa beauty and fashion, so I hope to learn from you and other Pinay bloggers. Hihi. 😀

  3. You're right! We have to be grateful of what we have but there's no harm in looking pretty as always too. =)
    Remember Nam in Crazy Little Thing Called Love. =)

  4. I like your post and I definitely agree with you. It shouldn't bother you how people see you as long as you know what you are and who you are. If you have a pure heart, you are beautiful and that's what matters most :). Keep up the good work! Followed you back too :D. Take care!
