Despite what the media might tell you, beauty isn’t all about looks. There are plenty of other traits, besides physical appearance, that can make a person beautiful. We could all use a little reminder from time to time on what true beauty actually looks like.

Here are five things that make people truly beautiful:

1. Their Brain

It really is what’s on the inside that counts. A person who uses their words and ideas to inspire others or to share their story is truly beautiful. A smart person is perfectly capable of changing the world. When they put their mind to something, they’re all in. They aren’t afraid of a little hard work, because they believe in their abilities.

2. Their Nurturing Nature

A truly nurturing person can be hard to find. They genuinely care about others. They exude love, compassion, generosity, joy and kindness. There’s nothing they wouldn’t do to make someone else’s day. Whether it’s a family member, a friend or a complete stranger, a nurturing person treats everyone with kindness. The way they care about others is a truly beautiful thing.

3. Their Confidence

Confidence, not cockiness, is a beautiful thing. A confident person who believes they are capable of anything can end up making a positive difference in this world. Being comfortable in your own skin can help pave the way for new ideas, exciting adventures and an independent spirit.

4. Their Skills

A person’s accomplishments should be commended. Each and every human on this planet is unique. The individual set of skills a person has can be a truly beautiful thing, especially if they use their skills to help others or change the world for the better.

5. Their Loyalty

Loyalty is a beautiful trait. A loyal person will always be there when you need them. Knowing that you can fully count on someone to stand by your side and pick you up when you’re feeling down is an amazing feeling.
