Beauty is something that not only stimulates your heart but also your mind. We hardly forget the first sight of that beautiful girl of our school, we never forget the first touch of a gorgeous woman, and we hardly forget the joy of spending time with a good-looking girl. Things keep changing and the meaning of beauty evolves. The new leaf no more stays green, the freshness disappears, things become ugly and eventually the beauty dies in oblivion.
When I try to recollect the moments from my past, I see many faces, many nuances. I see people with all shapes and sizes but only the beautiful and most attractive people hovers around my mind. May be that Beautiful Mind I am talking about.
Physical beauty undoubtedly attracts everyone and we love to spend time with good looking people. Physical beauty isn’t timeless but the time we spend with a real beauty is definitely eternal. Everyone wants his or her partner to look nice. It would be sheer hypocrisy if I say physical beauty doesn’t matter to me but there are always exceptions.
Things change and our perception takes a different route altogether. We no more dwell in the land of fairytales. We forget the glimpse of elves and angels from our dreams. We see ugly people with beautiful masks.
What is real beauty? If I say I find intelligence attractive, if I say people with honest smiles are amazingly striking than a high heeled blonde, if I say the country side girl riding a bicycle defines the virginal beauty, if I say Real beauty is nothing but a myth – People won’t find my words meaningful and trash them as gibberish and tangent however the search for finding the true beauty will never end. Beauty will take new forms; will touch you in various different ways.
The hot sun makes your skin perspire, the stress and every day chaos takes away all your charm. You keep staring at the mirror but you never get back your lost smile. You won’t stay young and beautiful forever, you won’t be conquering the stratosphere every time, you won’t epitomise the lustre and harmony, you are destined to fade, you are destined to lose your beautiful body, beautiful eyes, beautiful silk but a beautiful mind would dazzle in crisis. Her skin would never fade, her words would never die, and she is meant to stay for a long long time.
Real beauty is stirring it is not fake, it is natural and unaware of itself. Real beauty is something that will spread like perfume with time. Real beauty is something much more than nice features and a slim waistline, real beauty won’t die in oblivion, real beauty will inspire you to live one more time….
Real beauty may be awfully ugly but what is ugliness? Real beauty may be voluptuous; may be skinny, may be extremely intelligent, the idea of real beauty is vague still I think a beautiful person knows the art of perfect balance. Real beauty is a feeling, a blissfully eternal thought…
