What is your definition of beauty?

I 'personally' feel that it begins within when concerning oneself. Feeling good about who and what you are. Having a high self esteem while seeing the good in others. Presentation is a part of it, but not the brunt of it. In others I see beauty as a humble personality, respect, friendly and down to earth. Facial features/ outer beauty are only skin deep. Sometimes getting to know individuals as such will give a new definition of UGLY.

As for me I go with the inner beauty. Having a heart that is caring and willing to sacrifice, and a person with humility.

I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder don't you think. But even the ugliest person on the outside can be pretty in and just the opposite. I try not to judge a book by its color. But lots of people think my husband is hot I think he is okay and just the opposite some think he is ugly or not so cute. I just think it depends whose eye we have.

Indeed I do agree Baily. That was the basis of the post. Some people are just vain and think their appearance can get them through life. In some cases it might...just for a little while. That type of beauty fades and you better have that inner beauty spark to keep going.

Exterior beauty is always going to attract but just having exterior beauty doesn't last all that long, interior beauty may take awhile to be noticed by some but it lasts longer, being a good person will always win out...

This is true Lila. Getting to know an individual will truly tell their beauty. Some that society deems ugly physically can be the most beautiful individuals. Then again you can have a glamorous individual who has a negative demeanor and that can make them be seen in an entirely different way.
