Girls of all kinds can be beautiful from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing, and all in between. – Tyra Banks

They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and for that I agree. To one person they may have an affinity for a certain body type, color of hair, long hair, short hair, tattoos amongst other things. Sometimes I think it depends on the individual and how they view themselves as to who they see or would like to see themselves with and I think other things are factored in as well such as a family could’ve had a strict upbringing and so one may go with the grain or do the complete opposite of what their family.

A smile is the most important thing you wear. – Tyra Banks

Even when you cannot see a person you can hear if they’re smiling or not if you listen properly. I tend to smile when I’m answering the phone and talking to people because it does make a difference in how you’re perceived. Are there times you have to fake it until you feel it? Sure everyone has off days but it is interesting what smiling can do for you without you even realizing it.

Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It’s about accepting all of yourself. – Tyra Banks

It is definitely more than outer appearance as Tyra mentioned and that goes for how you feel about others as well. Beauty is more than appearance, true beauty is much deeper and complex. It’s how kind you are to others, how giving you are to one another and how thoughtful you are. Kindness has a radiance that shines so brightly, if most only knew what a little can do.
