Life: Now and Then
My number one secret is to see yourself as beautiful no matter what you look like, and to see others as beautiful, too. I learned this from my Philosophy professor who comes to class every day and tells us all what beautiful people we are. ^_^We are ALL born beautiful, but its up to us whether or not we want to stay beautiful. How do we view ourselves?
How true that is. I was born beautiful but somewhere along the way something went wrong. Like the verse in the old country song. .."could,ve been the whiskey, could've been the gin, could've been the four-five beers I don't know but look at the shape I'm in".
ShhhhhhhhI wanted to keep that one a secret!
I always liked this ..."There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion". ... Sir Francis Bacon ... that ought to make all of us feel good!
Gwen,That one was on the wall of a Life-Drawing class I took in college... years ago... where I learned how to give the grace of a swan to a guinea hen by tweaking their proportions. It's funny how humans sometimes aspire to abnormalities.
