B is for Beauty!

Beauty, like elegance, is elusive – everyone seeks it, but no one knows exactly how to define it – so we’ve created standards and measures: intelligence, poise, and grace. Harmonious features, and a clean mind and body with a lustrous, glossy finish.

But we all know it’s not the shape of your nose, the length of your legs, or the hang of your shoulders that makes you beautiful! What the world sees is completely up to you! Real beauty comes from within, founded on character.

Here’s the trick: a wise person once told me that real beauty never announces itself when it walks into the room. It will slip right by if you’re not looking for it, and it’s up to you to find it.

Sometimes it feels like life is one long act of endurance, so if every moment lived is one closer to the end, why not make every one as beautiful as possible?
