True Beauty

Being beautiful is not a size 0
Beauty is not how much make up you wear
Being beautiful starts inside
Beauty is determined by your heart
Beauty as defined by the dictionary is an excellent quality; the qualities that a person has
Beautiful is an adjective used to describe things as possessing beauty
Being beautiful as the world has made it seem is wrong...true beauty starts with a beautiful heart.
Be true to you because who you are is beautiful and changing who you are to fit someone else's mold of beauty will just hurt you

So it's been a while since I have posted. Sorry about that, I guess I got distracted by life, it happens. I've finished school for the 2009/2010 school year. I received the honor as one of two students of the year at my high school! I feel greatly honored. I also got a 4.0 for my freshman year in college. I feel very blessed and grateful to God for always being there for me and for blessing me with a love to learn.
I did a cleansing fast and just started eating more than fruits and veggies today! I missed food, but I feel healthier, I might even have more energy =]
Vacation starts on July 1st! I'm very excited to see some old friends and familiar places!
So I guess that's really all I have to say for now...I will be posting a list of 25 must read books soon =]
