Right now, off the top of your head, could you name one beautiful thing about yourself?
Could you name the one thing about your appearance that you absolutely love? That you’re so glad you were born with?
Maybe you can. Or maybe you’re one of the many women who draws a blank when it comes to seeing their outer beauty.
