A lot of you seem to be concerned. About your weight, your hair, the pimple on your face, the hangnail, etc. It’s a constant worry about how you’ll appear to the world. But how much emphasis do you put on how you treat others? How kind are you to your family, friends, strangers on the street?
That’s the real beauty–your kindness to others, the willingness to help, the ability to listen and understand. It doesn’t matter how you look if you’re a kind and loving person. That’s what people will see, remember.
When you’re gone, and one day you will be, what do you want them to say at your funeral? “Boy she had beautiful hair and flawless skin. She was gorgeous.” Or, “He was so handsome; so muscular and good-looking.” Or do you want them to say, “She was always there to listen,” or, “He was always good at fixing things around the house when I had no one else.”
That is what people remember. They don’t care if you were a size 2, or that you could bench press 400 lbs. They’ll remember what you did.
What do you want to leave behind? What do you want people to say about You!?
