What does beauty mean to you?
Imperfection and the beauty inside.
When I moved to Texas from California the summer of 2011, everything changed. The people of Austin seemed so laid-back about appearances and food and music is a big part of their culture. No one seemed to care if you were a size 0 or a size 20, and long as you're fun and have an uplifting attitude. With my dad out of the picture, I began experiencing life from a different angle, and my perception of beauty changed completely. Beauty is in, in a sense, "imperfection" flaunted with grace and confidence. I gained about fifteen pounds and I never felt so great in my life. I feel beautiful because my friends love me for who I am, and that's all that matters.
