What is Real Beauty?

Let’s face it, your breasts will sag, all your hair will eventually fall off, and your skin will wrinkle. What is lasting beauty? When we see with our eyes, they will no doubt move toward what is symmetrical and perfectly proportioned; lines and colors placed precisely to produce an aesthetically pleasing sight.

What if we close our eyes, and perceive what is beautiful in a person? I came up with these characteristics that would make anyone top-model beautiful- or at least on the inside.
GRACE: a disposition to kindness and compassion.
LOVE: a strong positive emotion of regard and affection.
DETERMINATION: the firmness of purpose; resolve.
KINDNESS: having or showing a tender and considerate and helpful nature.
INNOCENCE: freedom from harmfulness; inoffensiveness.
GENTLENESS: considerate or kindly in disposition; amiable and tender.
JOY: to fill with ecstatic happiness, pleasure, or satisfaction.

"All glory is fleeting." True beauty lasts forever, but the physical beauty our society values so highly is only temporary.

At least that's what I keep telling everyone...
