National Inner Beauty Day

On this day we pause to recognize what makes someone truly beautiful. It has nothing to do with looks. No make-up will help. It comes with no jealousy, bragging, or conceit. Inner beauty cannot be faked.

Inner beauty reflects our personality… our morals… our character. We see it in the kindness of people… in their modesty and humility, in their gentleness and generosity.

Inner beauty can last forever. Outer appearances? Not so much.

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”

— Kahlil Gibran (1883 – 1931)
