"I don't think it's about outer beauty. It's about inner beauty. I try and be a good person on the inside. Some people come up to me and they are like 'you really don't care what you look like hey' and I'm like 'no'! If people think I'm tall, and pretty, and thin, I'm like... Well... I got treated worse because of that. So to me, beauty is just strictly on the inside. It's what you show people. I don't think there is any woman that is not beautiful. The only way you are not beautiful is if your inside is not beautiful... your personality. You can be a really pretty person but if you have a bad attitude, you are no longer that attractive." #thephoebeproject (2/3)
"I really think it's your inside that makes you beautiful. If you can connect with someone and have a real conversation with them and know their heart.... that's the most beautiful state. When do I feel the most beautiful? When I can honestly just really connect with someone... when they see my inside... who I am." #thephoebeprojectmorde (3/3)
"We just met each other at the airport. I think we will be best friends. THIS is beautiful!" #thephoebeproject (1/3) These two just met each other and as I spoke to them they learned more and more about what they had in common. They laughed and laughed and I would not at all be surprised if it was the beginning of a life long friendship.
"Beauty is about having a positive attitude. I had three surgeries through the cancer, so I've come through that. Being positive is healing for me... I am loving life. And I'm making new friends!" #thephoebeproject (3/3)
Having waitressed in West Palm Beach for over 15 years, Carrie was soon to celebrate her 50th birthday, and had the most beautiful grateful heart. "Beauty to me is when you can make others see special qualities, like kindness... and in how you treat people. We don't do enough of this... as women... building each other up and building each other's self esteem. Beauty to me is when you love a friend unconditionally... for all she is. A lot of women don't give other women enough credit and they judge. We shouldn't judge. We should build up. "What make me feel beautiful? The love I have for my family. My sister is my best friend. I never would have imagined that I would be so blessed to have my sister as my best friend. I love her. I love her so dearly. She was a sister I didn't care for much growing up. And when we got older, and we got more mature, we were able to appreciate each other. We are different, and it's ok to be different. We should not take the differences and be mean spirited about it. We should accept it and embrace it and love them for that. We are all different, you know?! "Women do have a way of tearing each other down. Jealousy... it's not right." #thephoebeproject (2/2)
“Beauty is inner beauty to me. It exuberates on the outside. It’s about having confidence… aside of what you look like. I think that there is beauty in being a mother… and being confident in the body that God has given you, because… it changes… but that is beauty to me. Being a mom and a grandmother. Giving love back into the world. Loving people unconditionally, regardless of race, regardless of what they look like. That’d what beauty is.” #thephoebeproject (2/3
“Beauty is being yourself. Being comfortable with yourself. Thinking that you yourself is beautiful. I feel the most beautiful just being a mom. My daughter makes me beautiful." #thephoebeproject (3/3)
