The question was posed a couple of days ago what is the difference between being "pretty" and "beautiful"?
My take and two cents is very simple...there are many "pretty" faced people that walk beside and pass us on this earth. To me it is something that runs the length of a strand of hair to the very edge of the tip of one's toes. Pretty is aesthetically pleasing and something to place on a pedestal and gaze at. However, with me having a short attention span, pretty would become extremely boring, very quickly.
Now, let's get down to the meat and the potatoes of true beauty. Beauty, is non-tangible...something that lives within and is nurtured daily and sometimes moment - moment. Beauty, is kindness, thoughtfulness, humbled confidence, a gesture, positive words and loving actions. When one is "beautiful" it seeps through their pores, encapsulates that very being, plus those surrounding, hits the universe, and becomes airborne. It's highly contagious and encourages one's own beauty.
I, believe we were all beautifully, created...it is however, up to us to nurture this beauty. To pay attention to the beauty that lives within. To fancifully dress up and accessorize our "beauty" with the same tenacity, dedication and passion as we do our "pretty" little faces and bodies. It is our duty, to pay this lovely, beauty forward to one another. If the same emphasis were placed on our internal "beauty" as it is to "outPretty" the next person and keep up with the latest "fashion and beauty" trends, I'm almost positive, that we would live in a far more "beautiful" place.

*Swish, scratch, swish*...went the brushes and palm swipes of seven-subtly, eager artists against their roughly-textured and prepped canvases. Resonating incredibly soothing feels, like a medium-bristled brush being lovingly and carefully raked through her hair. It gave her the chills (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
She, steadily walked down the busy road, yet there were no appropriate sidewalks and cars were whizzing by. At any given time, there may have been a million questions/comments/thoughts/replays/intentions and words traveling along the synapses of her nerve endings, overflowing her system and blowing her mind (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
