Born Beautiful story @the_dragonfruit

 

Tell us about yourself in 50 words or less. We want to know one or two things that you'd want someone to know about you?

I’m a traveler at heart who loves finding adventure in day-to-day life! I believe in the power of coffee, positive thinking, friendship, and Jesus.

What are you most grateful for in life?

The people in my life - they truly are unexpected and undeserved blessings.

Who do you find beautiful – and what makes them beautiful to you?

As cliche as it is, my mother. The way she takes care of people and always puts others first is what makes her extremely beautiful.

Was there ever a time that you felt ugly? What happened and how did you react?

Yes, of course. I’ve always been self conscious about my heavier, average build. Especially my muscular legs - I still compare the size of them to every guy I meet.

Based on the time above, when did you realize that you were beautiful?

When I realized how much faster I was than most. I still love running and sprinting to this day because it gives me a powerful feeling, and that makes me feel beautiful.

What makes you beautiful?

My beauty is found in my actions. If I can make you smile and feel better about your day and yourself, then I feel I have been beautiful.

How has your idea of beauty changed over the years?

It has switched from a sheer physical definition of beauty to an attitude.

If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?

Stop comparing yourself to others!
