The Beginning of Classy

What is the beginning of being classy? Liking yourself. Enjoying your appearance rather than inwardly tearing yourself down.
I think this is an important thing to realize and to take to heart.

Too often it seems that young women have much more that they dislike about themselves than what they like. Did you realize God gave you your hair color? Your eye shape? Your height? Your hand size?

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13

Why then do we feel the desire to hate things about ourselves? Every part of you is unique to YOU. There will always be someone prettier, thinner, taller, better dressed, etc.
The physical comparisons need to stop!

Learn to embrace your natural beauty. Your curly hair, your crooked eyebrows, your bumpy knees, your long fingers, your stubby toes.

Classy is confidence. You cannot have confidence if you dislike yourself, if you feel like you need to hide yourself, whether with makeup, long hair, drab clothing, flamboyant clothing, whatever it may be! God has made you with a purpose, a plan.

Be confident. Be classy. :-)
