|The world would be boring if we all looked the same...beautiful women are nice to look at for both men and women for beauty is beautiful inside and out,it is how you project yourself whether
you have that outside beauty or not. It is what you carry inside
that counts, Vivian!

|I'm not sure if I contribute to the notion that beauty is only skin deep, that old stereotype has been disproved many times in my life. Your words are certainly true that omly inner beauty brings peace. It's probably best to avoid the mirror when the red roses begin to fade. This is a well written piece on a well trodden theme.|

|The secret to beauty lies not in the skin but inside the mind and heart deep within. I can see that you have no lack thereof and there are no limits to that kind of love.

|In High school, beauty ruled with a young mind and sometimes vanity took over. Teens were segregated in groups. Popular, nerds, druggies and that sort of thing. Often we carry with us the impressions left upon us during our sensitive years. I was a shy sort, not particularly attractive a plain Jane lol... this was my favorite theme song then.
However after my awkward years and shyness I opened up. I also noticed years later these same popular teens became very giving wonderful people. I'm sure there will always be a few that rely on their looks and not their inner self. But in general maturity and knowledge kicks in and a sense of giving and love to others.
This leaves me with the sense that perhaps you were shunned or hurt.
Love and Light
P.S., I agree with Ronald Hull

|It is strange, but I found that beautiful people often are more kind, generous, and loving than those that were not granted beauty by their birth. I think that's why naturally beautiful people get further in life. For those that spend a lot of time and money trying to get beautiful, I feel it's mostly a waste of time and money. We all have strengths that we should work on all of our lives to enhance. Those strengths will carry us through no matter what happens to the rest of us.

|Oh my. Right to the heart of it in such a gracious way. I suspect you have that inner beauty. I have spoken of this with my daughter when she was small and now I hear her telling her daughter who is six. You are so right, and you said it so well. Be well, Kathy|

|What'd she ever do to you, Vivian? She seems to be a perfect lady who is . . . er . . . quite adequately endowed by her creator.
Hah! I know whereof you speak though. Beauty, is, as they say, only skin deep, but oh boy, gotta love that skin. Heehee I'm having so much fun here. There will, of course come a time when the attributes aren't quite as . . . er ... perky as once they were, and sometimes they droop and sag so much they . . . Wait just a minute. No need for drooping or sagging as long as there is plastic surgery.
Sorry, Vivian, I just can't seem to get serious about this one. Hah! Guess I'd better go.
