Get Off the Scale, You Are Beautiful: Your Most Amazing Quote of the Day.

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” ― Audrey Hepburn

This is simply too beautiful not to share, and what a simply wonderful thought to end our work week.

Get off the scale, ladies—as there’s simply no way to accurately measure the most beautiful part of your spirit, that is you.


“Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful.

Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are.

I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it.

I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile.

Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love.

Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life.

You are beautiful!”
