“True Beauty” is a new reality show that will make it’s debut on ABC in January. The idea behind the show, as I understand it, is that contestants who are very “beautiful” will be judged on their inner and outer beauty.
I’m not sure if I will watch the show, but I do think that it is a good idea and the fact that a show has been developed about this subject matter kinda tells the story of where we are as a society. Take a look at any magazine, most TV shows and even the news and without fail, the “beautiful” people are definitely in the majority. Wouldn’t it be interesting to see how all of these “beautiful” people act off camera, out of the public eye?
To be fair, we could all probably take a look at ourselves to have a “beauty check”. We get up in the morning, prepare for the day, and then check the mirror before we leave to make sure that we approve of how we look on the outside, but how often do we examine how we “look” on the inside.
I’ll be the first to admit that more often then not my “beauty check” finds me lacking in some areas. My view on beauty is, if I don’t think that I’m beautiful who will, right? However, I have come to realize that my inner beauty-how I treat people, my honesty, my integrity, my morals and all those other inner qualities that make me who I am can certainly outshine my “beauty” on any given day.
In all fairness, this can’t just be about me, maybe it’s time for you to ask the question…
How beautiful am I?
