What is beauty? Are you beautiful in any way?

Beauty I think reflects what we want to seen as. So if you want to be seen as popular and outgoing you may find yourself thinking that people who are popular and outgoing are beautiful.

Right now I'd love to be seen as fit, so I'm drawn to people with muscular physiques.

I think our ideals about beauty change and we change!

And some days I feel beautiful and others not so much ;-)

Certainly not supermodel or starlet beautiful. More plain Jane physically. But I'd like to think I have a beautiful mind...

when i was younger, i thought that beauty could only be of the cosmetic kind, i.e. that one could only be beautiful if she/he looked a certain way. but then i thought, wait a minute, all flowers are beautiful - even if you prefer roses over daisies, say, that doesn't make daisies any less beautiful. the same goes for us, since we're all part of nature, too. the world is beautiful because of all the different and diverse people in it - what would it be like if everyone were exactly the same? boring! each one of us has our special qualities that we bring to the table (usually has nothing to do with looks), and i think that beauty is in finding out what makes you unique and not being afraid to let it show.

am i beautiful? you'd better believe it!
