It's been said that, "Beauty - in projection and perceiving - is 99% attitude". Is that true?
Have you met people who seem beautiful but in fact, their physical appearance does not conform to ordinary standards of prettiness? Perhaps they are so comfortable with themselves and others that they make you feel special, too? Perhaps their inner confidence projects a strong image that transcends beauty magazine ideals (which are unattainable for most people anyway).
I've been lucky enough to know men and women who have positive attitudes and project their inner beauty. Unlike youth, this kind of beauty lasts a lifetime.
