Last week I got an email from my dear friend Shawna about a commercial that I just had to watch. It’s part of the new Bare Escentuals ad campaign, Be a Force of Beauty. Those of you with the luxury of cable television may already have seen this commercial and realized what a gem it is, but for the rest of us still depending on Netflix for our entertainment, this is for you–it’s a message I want us all to grasp!
Pretty is not enough. Pretty is nice. It’s fine. Pretty can turn heads. But beauty? Beauty can change the whole world. Pretty is what you are, but beauty is what you do with it. Pretty lifts spirits. Beauty makes them soar. So smile. Be bold. Show your beauty. Because when you put pretty into action, there’s no limit to what you can do.
So girls, are we going to settle for pretty, or are we willing to step forward into lives of beauty? Will we change the world, make spirits soar, be bold, and show our real God-given beauty to a world that yearns for it? I sure hope so.
What steps can we take to move from our obsession with pretty into a pursuit of real beauty?
