Is it in the eye of the beholder?
After all, what we like is subjective. We’ve got those complicated noggins storing a lifetime of experiences, passions and beliefs, all of which color what we find beautiful.

Of course, shiny things distract and sparkly things can be fun(ny) . . .
That’s a lot of hair for one noggin to hold.
And beauty can get tangled up with things like botox, Spanx or Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues (pun intended).
It really is more about what we find at the core of one another.
“Beautiful people do not just happen,” said Elizabeth Kubler Ross. “These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern.”
It’s true. When you experience someone’s true character–compassion, kindness, smarts, empathy, humor, genuineness, love, etc, it’s like their soul is glowing right through their skin.
And that’s beautiful.
How do you define beauty?
