Beauty can defined in a variety of ways; to some it simply means the state of being pleasant to the eyes while to others it is something that brings a feeling of sweetness to the heart. To others still, it could be a sound or touch that soothes the soul however; true beauty in the actual sense encompasses all these and even more, for instance a person can be pleasant in appearance but in speech and action the reverse may be the case surely that person can not be truly described as beautiful, let us say you were asked by the police to describe a thug who just mugged you at gunpoint certainly beautiful will not come up in your description of the thug regardless of how good looking he appears to be.Now we know what beauty truly is the next step is to establish how we get it or where it comes from. The simple truth is everything was created beautiful, beauty is within us, and it is all around us as nature has bestowed us with so much of it. As a matter of fact our very nature as human beings is beautiful and for some beauty is displayed effortlessly while others need to do a bit to let it show. That not withstanding, everything, everyone is inherently beautiful. Take a piece of diamond for instance until it is cut and polished it could just as well be a piece of rock. Gold and silver have to be refined to bring out their true beauty, it is in us all to be beautiful but to attain true, total and all-encompassing beauty there must be some form of enhancement. This reminds me of the story of Cinderella and her ugly stepsisters. The stepsisters had the best of external adornment but they refused to enhance it with that which come from within hence they were described as ugly, Cinderella on the other hand had beauty within her which made it easy for the fairy godmother to turn her into a real gem. So if we are all inherently beautiful, why then do we need to enhance it? The simple truth is that, it adds value to our being and when this value is added people tend to appreciate us more, people want to love us more and I do not know of any person in this life who does not want to be loved and appreciated. Many manufacturer, advertisers and marketers understand this concept that is why the manufacturer wants to produce the best quality of a product and advertisers and marketers ensure it is well packaged and displayed to the public. How then can we enhance our inherent beauty and attain that true, total and all encompassing beauty?1. The first key is in our attitudes, we must recognise we are inherently beautiful and let that be reflected in our attitude to life, to people around us, to the world we live in and everything in it. No one could pick up a certain piece of rock and if he does not recognise that if cut and polished that rock is a gem he may just toss it into a pond. In the same vein if we do not realise this beauty is in us there is a tendency that our attitude to life and various issues will be wrong consequently we devalue ourselves in our relationships, work places and all other endeavours. To be truly beautiful we must have the right attitudes, think positively and most importantly recognise the beauty that is in us.2. The next is a healthy life style, to be truly beautiful we need to live a healthy lifestyle; it is pointless to have a pleasant appearance while we are killing ourselves with our lifestyle. The food we eat, the amount of rest, recreation, exercising and how we socialise are all important factors here. Our lifestyles may be such that we are to busy or we find it too difficult to balance out all these factors, for instance in the case of a balanced diet, we sometimes find this difficult to achieve not because we can not afford it, but because the time and knowledge required to put it together is not there especially in the modern world we live in where there is an abundance of junk food. This can however be remedied with the use of nutritional supplements. One must however, endeavour to maintain a healthy lifestyle and the keyword here is moderation.3. Finally we look at external adornment, this relates to the clothes, perfumes, cosmetics and accessories we wear to enhance our beauty. In this case there is no one perfect solution, what suits you may not suit me what is important is to be comfortable with what you wear. Avoid coming across as being over dressed or painted up like a doll; make sure whatever you wear adds to your self esteem.Beauty can be viewed in different ways but in essence to be described as truly beautiful entails a combination of different aspects of beauty. We are all inherently beautiful, but we need to enhance this raw beauty so that we add value to our being. This makes us better appreciated and love. Beauty enhancement can be achieved by recognising our inherent beauty and allow this to reflect in our attitudes; living a healthy lifestyle and with the use of appropriate clothing and accessories. I have heard people say beauty is relative, what is beautiful to one person may not be so to another, this may be correct for physical appearances but with regards to beauty, true beauty I totally disagree. True beauty is absolute it is either you have it or not and it is achieved by enhancing ones inherent beauty.
Beauty is an impression that does not only pertain to humanity but also other things that the Almighty created yet oftentimes misunderstood. The views of different people vary regarding beauty and most of the time it ends in confusion and frustrations. As an individual, how would you define beauty in your own perception? Some people associate beauty with the cover model in a certain magazine. Others define beauty just like the melodious music or a romantic verse. No matter how people define beauty, it is evident that there is no definite description that could clearly explain what beauty is. In this sense, it only shows that beauty is something that is indescribable. The perception about beauty depends and varies from individual as we have our own way of thinking. For many people when something that satisfies and give pleasures that could be something beautiful. Thus, the true meaning of beauty depends on the person who receives or experiences true feeling of joy, satisfaction and pleasure.However, how can you justify that a person is beautiful? Can you consider an attractive person is beautiful? This is such a complex question that no one can give definite answer especially in our society where different factor influences a person’s view about beauty. The culture is one factor that influences as it sets criteria of defining beauty. In the past, the culture implies beauty as being plump therefore it was the common practice of many women to gain weight before getting married. However, these beliefs have changed in the modern times through the advancement of technology. Because of human interaction, the cultural preference in defining beauty changed. A standard way of defining beauty was set and influenced by fashion through the images they project, the way they walk as well as the physical aspects that includes the way people dress up. This set of standard became the trend that almost all people in the world expected to abide. However, this should not be the case because no one can set a parameter in defining beauty and because setting such parameter would only result to prejudices.Therefore, instead of setting criteria we should rather think that we are all beautiful as God created no one ugly. However, it is also our responsibility to preserve and maintain the beauty we have. We should care about how we look because apparently beauty plays a big role in our lives. According to studies, beauty becomes highly commercialized in this modern time. Maybe you wonder why beautiful people receive more attention and assistance, gets higher marks and better job as well as trusted and paid more. However, you should not aim to be the most beautiful person instead you need to develop your strength. In doing so, your self-confidence will be enhanced in such a way that you become acceptable and presentable in the society you are living in.
