True Beauty

I love this poem by Sam Levenson. I found it in Miranda Kerr's book Treasure Yourself It's so beautiful I just had to share it!

Time Tested Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his 
or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, received, reclaimed and redeemed: never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one
at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two 
hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, 
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must been from in her eyes, 
because that is the doorway to her heart, 
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
 but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, 
the passion that she knows.
And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!

Beautiful, don't you think? When I'm feeling down or too embedded in the little horrors life throws at you things like this cheer me up, so I hope some of you will find it heart lightening too! 

Hope you're all well and smiley, lots of love xxx
