How do you define beauty? #RandomActsOfEnchantment

B E A U T Y 

I received some constructive feedback indirectly from a parent this week 
suggesting that I "only post the pretty girls" on my social media. 

Suddenly my mind was racing.

Aren't they ALL pretty? 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or in this case, the perception of the photographer.

You see, ALL the girls participating in the Random Acts Of Enchantment Movement 
are beautiful to me. 

Beauty is compassion, beauty is confidence, beauty is strength, beauty is attitude, beauty is empathy, beauty is kindness. Beauty is an open heart, a loving soul, an eagerness to connect to another human being. Beauty is a light emanating from the soul. Beauty is making someone else's day better.

How do YOU define beauty?

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.” 

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” 
― Audrey Hepburn

“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way 
to make life beautiful for others.” 
― Mandy Hale

“Happiness and confidence are the prettiest things you can wear” 
― Taylor Swift

"The wise do not buy into other people’s perceptions of who they are and what they are capable of. Instead, they bypass a person’s public persona and see who they are in their highest expression. When you see actions taken with integrity, instead of words only, you will then know a soul’s worth.” 
― Shannon L. Alder

“Whole life is a search for beauty. But, when the beauty is found inside, 
the search ends and a beautiful journey begins.” 
― Harshit Walia

“If people were more concerned with how they looked on the inside, 
then on the outside, the world would be a nicer place to exist.” 

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” 
― Oscar Wilde

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, 
but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 
― Maya Angelou

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else 
is the greatest accomplishment.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” 

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. 
They must be felt with the heart” 
― Helen Keller

“It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.” 
― Stephenie Meyer

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” 
― Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross
