    What beauty means to me

    Beauty to me is more about what's inside someone than what's outside them. Kindness is beautiful. So is generosity, tolerance, a warm smile, intelligence and empathy. Sure the outside matters a bit - good hygiene counts for a lot and flattering clothing and good grooming - but what's inside will last a lifetime. I'm not afraid of aging and I hope that when the wrinkles and lines come (I am 33), that they will all be from smiling and laughing. Joy is beautiful. Joy shared is doubly so. Self-confidence is more than beautiful, it's dazzling.

    Do I have insecurities? Sure, sometimes I wish I didn't have a 'mummy tummy' or that my breasts were smaller but I am also grateful every day for my daughter and that my body worked as intended to carry her to term and then nourished her for almost 2 years from my breasts. There are lots of things I love about my body - I love my height, my hands, my tattoos, my curves, my smile. Dancing makes me feel beautiful. So does singing.

    I believe everyone has something beautiful about them and it's usually what makes them uniquely them.
