What is Beauty, Really?
What is beauty, really? It is said to rest in the eye of the beholder, so it’s a variable from person to person. Some who have been called beautiful embody nothing close to beauty and yet many who are not looked upon as beautiful are as close to the beauty of God one might be so blessed to get.
Beauty is deep from within and extends beyond the exterior of one’s looks. It lies in the core of who someone truly is. It emanates from a place so deep within. To call this essence “beauty” is merely not enough. It is the compassion to empathize with others and yet speak the truth when honesty is all that’s ever needed. Anything can be said and received in truth as long as your intentions are beautiful. Beauty is patience, sincerity, understanding and love.
Although we can search to find the beauty in all things, it’s only when we find the beauty in ourselves that we are able to truly see, hear, feel, and know it within others.
“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
