Kindness, Optimism & Warmth

What did beauty mean to you when you were in your 20s?

The meaning of beauty in my 20s for me was more superficial, that is more the physical aesthetic type of beauty, on the exterior, beautiful features, hair, smile etc.

What does beauty mean to you now?

Now, at the grand old age of 49, beauty takes on a different meaning for me.  A person can be beautiful because of what they portray in their actions of kindness, of their optimism, of the warmth they transmit to others.

If different, why have your ideas about beauty  changed over the years?

You live and learn basically, that all that seems beautiful on the outside is not always that way on the inside. Over the years, I have met some beautiful people who have inspired and supported me, even though they may not have been what is traditionally perceived as physically beautiful.
