Inner and Outer Beauty

Untitled

The human heart is filled with happiness when it sees or feels something beautiful. This is because there is a kind of magnetic magic in beauty. Most of us get attracted by a beautiful person, object or a natural landscape.

Researchers have found that:

1. Good looking students get higher grades from their teachers than students with ordinary appearance and,

2. Attractive patients receive more personalized care from their doctors.

3. Even handsome criminals receive lighter sentences than less attractive convicts.

4. How much money earns may also be influenced by physical beauty.

Greater success with the opposite sex.

On the other hand, it is not always true that a beautiful person is beautiful at heart too and that there will be peace at home. It may not be good and healthy to go for outer looks only- the beauty may be deep skin only. Moreover we must ask ourselves: are beautiful people always happier people? Then is it for ever? Or is it in the eyes of the beholder.

Some people believe that when there is outer beauty, one’s mind is happy and when there is inner beauty one’s soul is happy. So what we need is a balance between these two so there may be harmony, love, peace and above all, happiness. One can live with a lame or dumb person but one cannot live with an insensitive and heartless person. A beautiful looking person may be filled with hatred, mischief or lack of compassion for others.

Some philosophers tell us that we cannot fully enjoy a beautiful waterfall, a majestic mountain or the brilliant stars in heaven without inner beauty.

Beauty is a wonderful thing and we all should work to achieve both inner and outer beauty.

After all we are all beautiful in our own way!

As we move on the last pages of 2014, we are surely thinking about some new year’s resolutions. On a serious note, Happy New Year Resolution is an opportunity to gauge our goals.
Here are 10 of  2015 New year resolutions, which maybe one will please you!

1) Accomplish the Incomplete!  If you still feel that the resolutions you made last year and abandoned midway are worth a second shot, give it another chance!

2) Fit in Fitness! – Select a regime you can stick to. This will prevent you from going to the doctor, and you’ll be in good health. But don’t set any strict target, for then the chances are you may get de-motivated and quit.

3) Learning New Skills – Learning something new and interesting is always fun and a value addition too.

4) Adopt a Pet – The devotion, love and loyalty of a pet can never be matched. Feel the bliss by giving one a home. 

5) Give up on a bad habit – Old habits are not easy to change! Some really need to – like, biting nails, biting your lips etc.

6) Help your parents – Doing something nice for your parents will bring you guaranteed bliss – you are the best to know what will light up their face with a smile.

7) Positive approach to life – Always look life at a positive angle! This will surely help you solve any problems you may face in life.

8) Wreck a Record – This does not necessarily have to be a world record. It could be your own set standards — getting better grades in school, saving more than last year – anything.

9) Wowed By Wanderlust – If new places interest you, plan to reach out to them.

10) Aim higher  My father always told me: ”Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” hope you get inspired by this quote too!
