Jean Yee got bonus points for her sweet answer to what her definition of beauty was…
Beauty, true beauty comes from within. It’s a combination of disposition, attitude and positive thoughts of yourself and empathy for others. This exudes from the person and it becomes their aura. From this comes respect to one’s body and the desire to take effort in caring for it by nourishing it and enhancing your body to match and enhance the beauty from within. Beauty’s manifestation is a person who finds balance in caring for him/herself in mind, body and soul and has enough to care outside of him/herself and find empathy for others and their environment.
