What Defines Beauty?
Is it someone's smile? Their eyes? Their skin? Their body? Their spirit? Read on to find the real meaning of natural beauty. It's not what you may think.
Is it someone's smile? Their eyes? Their skin? Their body? Their spirit?
The saying goes "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I truly believe that is the truth. There is no one definition of what beauty is. We can all look at the same supermodel or actress/actor and have an opinion on whether they truly are the "sexiest" or the "prettiest". The truth is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, all colours, all ages, and breaks all stereotypes that beauty magazines and so called "experts" put out there.
On the flip side, what can undermine someone's beauty? Definitely their attitude, behaviours and actions. Tell me you haven't met someone who you (and most people) would define as beautiful, only to discover their personality as being disingenuous or their behaviours to not match up with your (or societal) values, thus making them far less attractive or beautiful once you scratch below the surface.
