Day 306, November 2

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."--Audrey Hepburn
I found this quote in a woman's magazine. Hidden among articles on choosing jeans to flatter one's tush, the best ways to shape one's arms, and how to use eye shadow more effectively was this small jewel.
Will expensive creams soften the growing wrinkles around my eyes? Unlikely. Will collagen injections plump up my lips? Maybe. But who wants fat lips anyway? Will wearing designer clothes give me more poise? The possibility that I will ever be wearing designer clothes is slim to none, so I won't worry about it.
But Ms. Helpburn's words can help all of us. Male or female. Young or old. Fat or thin. Her counsel is ageless, as was her beauty.
So, for today, I am grateful for words of wisdom from a classy lady.

  1. What kind of perverse society tells people that they "should" be fat where they are usually thin, and thin where they are usually fat? And how stupid are we that we keep putting up with this?

    Thank you for the words of sanity, and for the focus on what really matters. I am grateful for the reminder.
