Nancy teaches her girls that what makes them beautiful is on the inside. Find out what other messages she sends to her daughters about beauty and self-esteem and what her eldest daughter thinks makes her mom beautiful.
I've always had the personality that helped me to be comfortable with myself, no matter what. While I may no longer be a size 3 and I've entered my 30s, my perception of beauty has changed immensely. It is more natural and carries a deeper dimension to it now. When I was younger, I used to be more concerned about aesthetics and what was on the outside. While that is still important there's much more to what I think makes a woman beautiful now.
My daughter recorded what she thinks makes me, her mom, beautiful. Watching her honestly talk about how she sees me was remarkable. It brought tears to my eyes to hear that she spoke about other qualities besides the outward. Maybe, I am doing something right.
