Everyone seems to have an opinion on what beauty is. According to fairness creams, fair is beautiful. According to campaigns against fairness creams, dark is beautiful. Beauty parlors and models in magazines seem to suggest perfectly shaped eyebrows and being size zero is a prerequisite for beauty. Plus size stores and songs glorifying the hourglass figure appear to suggest being skinny isn’t so great after all.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on what beauty is, but real beauty is more than just skin deep.

True beauty is what radiates from within. True beauty can be seen from cracks of a wall that housed so many families and so many happy memories. It can also be seen on a green, green lawn after the first drizzle. Beauty can be seen in a tiny little girl whose face lights up when her father comes home after a long day at work. Beauty can also be seen in the tired but content eyes of a mother who listens to her son rattle about his day in school.

Beauty is everywhere. Beauty comes from kindness, friendship, love, peace, understanding and joy. Even a dozen plastic surgeries cannot manufacture a true smile, and nothing radiates beauty more than a genuine smile or a natural face.

Lizzie Velasquez, the World’s Ugliest Woman, can teach us more about true beauty than anyone else can. She is a prime example of how the media’s standards for beauty are a sham. Lizzie chose to make the label “ugly” work for her, as used all the media attention to become a motivational speaker. Her words have transformed lives. Her personality that shines through is truly beautiful. Her eyes are kind and honest, and it’s difficult to imagine why anyone would want to call her ugly.

It’s difficult to fathom why so much depends on looking “perfect” and following society’s textbook definition of what beauty is. It puts so much pressure on women to primp, use all of those creams and lotions and spas, rather than just work on being good human being. In men too, there are so many beliefs on what makes a man attractive, such as “tall, dark and handsome” or “tall, blonde and blue eyes” when it’s his soul that ultimately matters. Either of the sexes does, at some point, realize, whether in mid conversation or amidst easy laughter or a comfortable silence, that it actually not looks that make beauty. It’s the person as a whole.

So much depends on a person’s face and hair that people often forget what beauty means. Stop by to think about it, and ask yourself if you’re proud of who you are and where you’re at. Ask yourself if you’re following your heart and if you’re taking enough leaps and risks. Ask yourself if you like the people around you for who they are, or because they appear “cool” to others. Appreciate the place around you, for everything it gives you, and all the memories that coexist within it. You are already living amidst so much beauty, and you are wonderful as you are. Never forget that.
