What is Beauty?

What does it take in our culture, I wonder, for a woman to feel beautiful?

Audrey Hepburn somehow managed to retain her ideal weight throughout her entire adult life — surely a magical feat that only a goddess could pull off!

After she retired as a ‘super-star’, she became a tireless volunteer and advocate for the suffering children of the world. View photographs and read the story of her life at: Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn read these words to her son on Christmas Eve 1992, a month before she died. The piece was read at her funeral to memorialize the meaning of her life. It was a fitting tribute to the goddess she was.

Time-Tested Beauty Tips
~by Sam Levenson

  • For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
  • For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
  • For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
  • For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
  • For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
  • People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived,
    reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
    you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
    As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
    one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.

Beauty is as beauty does. Now that’s the real thing, Goddess-style!

  • Pam BurnPam Burn As an update to my broken foot... I'm completely healed. After 3 weeks I was dancing and after 5 weeks back in heels. Motivation girls! When I first saw the consultant after the. X-ray and MRI he said the worst case scenario was 8 months and an op. Ha ha. When I went back having brought my appt forward 4 weeks later. He was honestly speechless! I don't want to sound smug ( but I know I am) and he even said that he needed to look into herbs and homeopathy some more! I also think it was the daily Reiki too. Sending love and light to my poor foot and ripped tendon really speeded up the healing. I now need to do the same to my back and fat tummy! I need to love all of me. It works x September 2, 2014 2:53 pm
