A great figure or physique is nice, but it’s self-confidence that makes someone really sexy.
~Vivica A. Fox
You can dress in the finest clothes. Your hair can be perfectly styled. You can wear the latest designer shoes and if you wear makeup, you could look as good as a model from Vogue, but all this means nothing if you don’t feel good about yourself.
Without self-esteem all the effort you may take to look good or improve outward appearances is useless. You must have confidence in yourself. It does not come from your appearance, appearances are constantly changing, it comes from inner peace, being proud of your accomplishments, talents and your ability to do certain things that maybe other people can not. It comes from taking interests in a hobby and feeling good creating something beautiful and it comes from doing things that make you happy, activities that bring you joy. If you are happy with what you do, your talents, and accomplishments, appearances won’t matter.
This does not mean that you should not take pride in your appearance and you should not look your best, it just means that other things in life are much more important.
My self-confidence didn’t come from my appearance, it came from the other things that I did. But certainly not my appearance.
