What is BEAUTY?

beau·ty[byoo-tee]–noun, plural -ties.

1. the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).
2. a beautiful person, especially a woman.
3. a beautiful thing, as a work of art or a building.

Beauty is a characteristic of a person, animal, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure, meaning, or satisfaction. Beauty is studied as part of aesthetics, sociology, social psychology, and culture. An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection.
Beauty as defined by Wikipedia

The world around us inundates us with ideas of what beauty is. We can either believe what the world tells us about beauty and transform ourselves into what it wants us to become OR we can choose to define beauty by who we are.

You are beautiful.

This blog is an exploration of beauty for all people of all ages from any culture or background. There will evidence of my faith and beliefs woven into the posts on this blog. I believe that through this exploration of beauty we will all learn more about ourselves and others around us.
