My wonderful girl friend Loren Ridinger did a really cute interview with my mom, which she posted on her blog, so I thought I’d share it with you guys. I love mom’s response to Loren’s question asking what makes a woman beautiful. Mom has always taught us to be self-assured and confident in our own skin, and I think that’s one of the biggest lessons a mother can teach her daughter. Here’s a snippet of the interview…
Of your six children, who do you think reminds you the most of yourself?
Kim is definitely my twin. She and I connect on so many levels: spiritually, emotionally, and even physically, sometimes (we seem to have similar body issues, lol). But we really see eye-to-eye when it comes to business. And we really trust and respect each other immensely—which is what great relationships are all about! The fact that we love each other to pieces… doesn’t hurt.
What do you think makes a woman beautiful?
Confidence… being self assured… good self-esteem… having a really good self-image and being happy in your own skin. The way you carry yourself says it all.
Beauty really does start from within, so feeling good and eating right is key. Getting lots of exercise helps, too. But beauty also lives in the soul—it’s in the heart. Some of the most beautiful women I know I barely need to look at, it’s all about how they make me feel and how they feel about themselves that oozes beauty from within. There is such power in owning how beautiful you are inside and out. You would be surprised how projecting that glow in a positive way has such a naturally amazing effect on others and actually helps others feel better about themselves. I really feel if we were kinder people and were not so judgmental everyone would have a better feeling about themselves, and therefore be so much more successful and happy. And lastly: have a good sense of humor about yourself. LAUGH… it really makes a woman so beautiful when she has a smile on her face—plus, it’s contagious!
