Beauty and Beyond


I just wrote a post about ‘The Secret to Looking Younger and Losing Weight’ that I HOPE conveyed ‘beauty’ is an inside job, not just on the outside.

It’s not just about looks! Let’s take Cleopatra:


This is a rendition based upon an actual existing portrait. Cleopatra wasn’t a beauty but she was described as charming, very intelligent and very confident. And she managed to snag nearly every man she wooed.

Confidence has no comparison. Anyone with healthy confidence is sexy. Period. True confidence is a rare trait and it will make you stand out. You have to believe in yourself before others will. Overconfidence isn’t legit, it’s the same as lack of confidence but with the person trying too hard to make up for it. Remember that.

An interesting thing I hear is that men end up marrying women who make them feel good. As Maya Angelou said “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
If you’re funny, energetic, have a great attitude and are caring and compassionate how could people NOT find you beautiful? Because you’d be so much fun to be around people would gravitate to you.

I find that someone’s personality and attitude affects their appearance to me. How they are on the inside is how I start to see them on the outside. This is not a conscious decision on my part, it just happens.

To be beautiful on the outside be beautiful on the inside! :-D
