True beauty lies within love, confidence and courage. Love is a traditional concept of beauty because it can come in so many different forms. In a photograph of a mother and her child titled Mother’s Unconditional Love photographed by Shwet the beauty of love is shown. Another untraditional concept of beauty is confidence. Being confident can be a beautiful thing but not everyone may see that. The song Stand Up by Sugarland shows confidence. True beauty can also be shown through courage.
Courage can be shown in many ways and is a key trait people should try to have. In the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants directed by Ken Kwapis, they use courage to conquer fears. Each artistic medium shows a different way to portray true beauty that lies within it. In the song Stand Up by Sugarland confidence shows true beauty. In the first stanza of the song the lyrics “It could change if we just get started/Life the darkness, light a fire/for the silent and the broken hearted”.
This shows one example of how having confidence can change any situation; Change and a brighter outcome can come from confidence. Another part of the song states “Stand up/Stand up/won’t you stand up and use your voice?” taking responsibility and standing up for what one believes in is another example of showing confidence. At the end of the song they sing “When the walls fall all around you/When your hope has turned to dust/Let the sound of love surround you”. Having love for oneself is an example of confidence. Being confident shows true beauty in many ways.
Courage is another example of true beauty. The movie Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants directed by Ken Kwapis has many scenes focused towards courage. One scene in particular when the characters Bailey and Tibby are talking about how if Bailey is afraid of dying shows a huge amount of courage. Bailey is fighting leukemia and doesn’t have much longer. She still continues to live her life to the fullest every day and that shows how courageous she is. As Bailey and Tibby are talking about being fearful of losing everything, Bailey says she is not afraid of dying she is afraid she is going to run out of time, she is afraid of what she’ll miss. This shows courage because even though she is fighting something she is not going to survive she is not fearful of the outcome. Courage is a beautiful trait to have and can help conquer many situations thrown at people. Love can show true beauty in many ways. In the picture titled Mother’s Unconditional Love by Shwet it shows how beautiful the bond they share is.
A mother and her child have an unconditional love that is different from the many other kinds of love. This is an example of true beauty. In the picture the mother is holding her child close to her showing that the child is safe and secure in her arms. It shows true beauty and that she cares so much to keep her child close to her and wouldn’t let anything happen to them. Another example of how this picture shows true beauty is the mother’s face shows pure happiness. She looks very happy and calm to get to be close and spend time with her child. The bond and unconditional love between a mother and her child shows that true beauty lies within it.
In the song Stand Up they were trying to motivate people to be confident and be their own person. The lyrics relate to confidence more than any other message. Although the song relates so much to confidence some lyrics show how courage and love show true beauty also. The lyrics talk about using someone’s voice as in their own ideas that message is absent in the other artistic mediums. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants has the message of how courage shows true beauty. This is shown in many scenes throughout the movie. When Bailey talks about how she is fearful of what is too come in the future, this shows how much courage she has built up to handle her sickness. That is absent in the other two artistic mediums majorly. But even though The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was chosen for courage; Confidence and love are shown throughout the movie too.
During the chosen scene confidence is present in Bailey’s actions and the love she has for her own life is present also. The photograph of the mother and her child shows how true beauty lies within love. An unconditional love shared between the mother and child is shown greatly just by looking at the photo. But in a way confidence can be identified too. An assumption that the mother is confident in her joy and love she has for her child can also be made. All the artistic mediums chosen to display these messages relate to each other in some way and really show the meaning of how true beauty lies within confidence, courage and love.
True beauty can be shown through many untraditional concepts. Confidence, courage and love all portray true beauty in different ways. Each artistic medium relates to each other in a way but also has their own message. People look at beauty on the outside when true beauty can be present in ways we may not always see and these artistic mediums show that in their own way.
