Inspirational Quotes by Coco Chanel
So this story goes back to when I started following Forever21's Google+ page. They have a special segment called WhoSaidIt, where they would put famous quotes in and you had to figure it out. I saw this one first, and it really appealed to me.
" Elegance is when the inside is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside."
This really proves a point where inner beauty comes into play. I think beauty comes from the inside, since everyone has a different personality and charm. It's all about the attitude, and how you think of others and yourself. Just imagine yourself without make up, jewelry, or all that other fancy stuff. If you have a true heart, you don't really need it. So, why don't we take this as a New Year's resolution and think deep.
Someone who possesses the inner beauty will have many great traits:
Accepting others for Who they are
Don't change someone else.Focus on yourself and try to not leave anyone out. Everyone in the world should be your friend, and you'll have some of your best friends. Everyone deserves respect and think about them. If you know someone who needs help, the right thing to do is to offer a helping hand. Think about how we represent the future. Last year, there was a girl in my class who needed some help in math. She never really understood concepts and she never thought about improving. Finally, one day I decided to help her with a test she had made some mistakes on. We sat outside with the math book in our laps and we went one by one through each problem. She took it a whole other way, and even the teacher was proud of her. You can make a difference in someone Else's life, even if it's the little things.
Standing up for who you Truly are
Don't let the bully push you around. When someone tries to insult you or laugh at you, don't ignore. I know parents and teachers tell you to just walk away, but that just makes the bully think that they can do it again. Don't get into a fight. Just kindly ask them to stop, or say," excuse me." Bullies are just people who need you to be the victim. Don't let anyone push you around all day. It's your job to decide on what you want to do. Elegance can come from a mentally strong personality.
Why are we here today? Many people in the past have taken care of all of these inventions and problems. However, that doesn't mean we can slack off. Why not go better for the best? If you get stuck on a homework problem, first try and then ask for an explanation or help. If you had a multiple choice answer on a test, and you were stuck, would you leave it blank or answer it? Elegance comes from attitude, not a dress.
Another Quote I found that really inspired me was this second quote.
" In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different."
Every girl is unique, and every girl's fashion tastes are different. Every girl wants to be the one who's treated like a celebrity. However, you have to realize that you have to stand out from the crowd in order to be appealing.
The best way to be different is to dress the way you want to dress, rather of what others will think of you. Sometimes, I don't like the newest fashion trends so I don't need to follow them. Maybe I like wearing white after labor day or mixing gold and silver jewelry. It's good to be a fashion rebel sometimes, as long as you are under a dress code. You can be the leader in starting a trend, because it might catch on.
I think that being different comes mainly with your ideas. We already look different, why not act different. Your a celebrity in your own world, whether you think about it or not. Everyone is special, just embrace it.
As you can tell, everyone can be who they want. No one has an advantage or disadvantage when it comes to this. A great personality is not something that money can buy. I found this quote very inspiring, and it's etched in my heart forever.
I will definitely try to do more of these, and leave in the comments if you find any inspiring quotes. I'd be delighted to read them all:)
