    We Become What We Think About...

    I've always been a big beleiver that we grow from the inside out.  This has been reinforced by some good books I've read.  One of the best is a highly motivational book called the "Strangest Secret" by Earl Nightingale, who said, "We become what we...

    Elementary!

    Too True! However, I have this question that constantly runs back and forth up and down in my mind trying to figure out! EXACTLY I say! Inner beauty is where it all starts Striking fact! Most people really don’t focus on this fact! If they did they would not be so worried about...

    From Within

     I think beauty does come from within. I have seen many beautiful people but when I realized how they lacked inner beauty, I didn't find them as beautiful anymore. I saw more of their flaws. However, the same goes for not-so-pretty people. For instance, initially I...

    Beauty To Me Is

    Beauty is that warm smile from a kind heart that accepts you, and loves you despite the many imperfections we all have. Beauty is that person going out of their way to help out someone who needs a helping hand even if they don't know the person they are helping. Beauty is that...

    Because Those Beautiful On The Inside Would Never Let The Outside Be Ugly

    I am always amused by these groups. Anyway, I believe what the title says. I believe that inner beauty helps to build the outer beauty. After all, inner beauty is caring about the literal inner you. If you take good care of your physical self then you are a beautiful person...

    It Is True

    Basically who I go out on dates with is determined by what people call "Inner Beauty". The hottest guy can come up to me and ask me out on a date, but if that guy is narcissistic, an *******, or a jerk, I will turn him down without a second thought. Their personality...

    I Agree

    I think outer beauty is indeed determined by inner beauty... The most beautiful person, the outside, can be seen to be very ugly if she is ugly on the inside..... Maybe not at first glance, but when someone gets to know such a person it quickly becomes obvious.....

    True Story

    I remember there was this one guy that really didn't catch my eye, at first. But then he and I started talking at a party and when I noticed how funny, smart, and charming he was, I got butterflies. Lol. After that, I always got nervous when he would be around. I also believe...

    Just Do

    I've discussed this before but felt it worth mentioning again. Of course I can look at someone and see beauty but with me I feel I can find beauty in everyone. I also believe that when I get to know someone that it changes my perception of their beauty. If I ...

    Looks Aren't Enough

    You can be the most physically appealing person in the world and it doesn't matter. If you don't have anything to bring to the table where it matters you are ugly.

    Inner Beauty

    I always remember the Hallmark commercial about inner beauty; I think it goes something like this; if you're sweet on the inside; it shows on the outside; I believe that's true.
