"Do not ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do that. For what the world needs is more people who have come alive."
-Howard Thurman

Let us defy cultural norms imposed on us through media and other societal mediums and form our own paradigm of beauty...true beauty, deep beauty- not the superficial kind, for that is fleeting and subjective to say the least. This type of beauty has much more to do with how you live your life than the features you were arbitrarily born with (although each of these features is beautiful in and of itself for what it symbolizes and the gifts it carries with it, but I digress...) Superficial beauty is cursory- true beauty leaves a legacy. Superficial beauty requires no ownership, no character, no impact. True beauty means self-actualization and good will. True beauty matters. It is not something we achieve through make-up and curlers- it is within us, waiting to be harnessed, waiting to be shared- to be lived. Superficial beauty is seen with the eyes, true beauty- felt with the heart. Superficial beauty is pleasant, true beauty- stunning.
Have you done something beautiful today?
