What is beauty? The woman who primps and preens for hours with the latest fashion, each hair in its place, a smokey eye with meticulous cat eyeliner, contoured chiseled cheeks? How about a high tight backend, lifted faces and eyebrows making a woman look shocked? Breasts that are round no longer tear drop shape and stand at attention without the aid of an underwire or padding?
In 2015 this seems to be the popular definition. I think beauty is all around us each and every day not the way it’s portrayed in movies, on television, in magazines and emulated by society.
Have you ever watched the sunset? Just picture the colors of orange, red, yellow and amber coming together then suddenly disappearing leaving a moon that glistens on the waters and ripple sending waves crashing onto the sand. Baby animals that squeak and squeal for their mother or dolphins jumping in an out of the water dancing. The moment a couple learns they are bringing a life into this world. When they’re eyes meet the babies for the first time. Watching a childs first steps and words. The unconditional love that causes an adult to do something they would punish someone else for. When people realize they have finally conquered a fear or met a goal once thought unachievable. A child deaf since birth hears their voice for the very first time.
Beauty is in nature and the natural order of life. My wish is for society take the time to focus on true beauty not stereotypical beauty.
