Beauty

A Celebration of Life

The world can be a dour place for those who feel they are not beautiful, but they might simply be looking at it through jaded lenses. While there are some people born with natural good looks that need little enhancement, others struggle daily to find one good feature to present to the world. What many of the people in both of these categories have failed to recognise is that a celebration of life as a positive is often what brings out the beauty from within a person to shine on the world around them.

Cosmetics can cover up dull or patchy skin, and there are many colours of blushes, eye shadows and lipsticks and glosses to create a particular look. If that look is shrouded in dark thoughts and a depressive demeanour, it will not be considered beauty by almost any standard. A person who can smile in the face of disappointment, adversity or even everyday life is one who can be seen as more beautiful than those with a room full of cosmetic enhancements and a professional to apply them.

Many are the times when glowing skin has been seen as the basis of beauty, but it often comes less from cosmetic enhancement than a good mental outlook on life. Being able to enjoy what is in the world around a person is often the best way to travel to a beautiful world, so learning to appreciate life is important. Those who are too busy looking for something they might never reach will become disappointed, and it can mar whatever look they originally sought.

Finding the beauty in self and celebrating it is a path to true happiness, and letting that feeling shine through can negate many of the less fortunate aspects of a person’s appearance. Being able to live a life of mental balance where happiness is a large part in almost any circumstance can create a beautiful outlook that is match with a natural inner glow.
