Who are you rooting for?

There are people, who are an epitome of elegance and grace. Or brimming full of élan and style. Everyone admires these people. And then there are those who are symbolic of everything opposite of elegant. You can say that they were the antithesis of chic! But they may have other virtues, which are even of greater value than grace and beauty. A true heart is better than an elegant exterior. A loving nature can give beauty a run for its money. If I had to choose, I would want to be an epitome of kindness and inner beauty, though these attributes are seldom used together. For me being kind and generous are the best kind of qualities one could posses. We as a society put a lot of emphasis on the external, while usually ignoring what lies beneath. The polish and shine of the exterior can often mask a decay in the base. While a drab outer shell can hide a heart of gold.

What do you think is more important?

  1. Beautifully written. I believe in this saying “Beauty fades but true beauty remains.”

    Superficial beauty is what most people chase after. But this is fleeting most especially when we age. True beauty, like wine, gets better as it ages.

    Great post 😊

  2. When you wrote, “A loving nature can give beauty a run for its money,” I was reminded that A LOVING NATURE -is- beauty!! You acknowledge that true beauty is an inside job. I’d put my money on the loving heart any day! I can tell you would, too. Thanks for visiting JanBeek and leaving your “calling card” so I could find your blog. I’ll be back.
