I thought I should try to challenge my writing. Veer away from topics I choose myself, and so, I have decided to take the Daily Prompt challenge.
Today’s Question is:
We’ve all heard that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Do you agree? is all beauty contingent on a subjective point of view?
Yes, beauty, indeed, is in the eye of the beholder, but the term “beauty” may mean differently for different people.
I am reminded of a quote from Khalil Gibran- “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”
To some, beauty in a person is, when they are able to engage in conversation with ease. A well read person is easily admired, pending that they do not end up being a pompous know-it-all.
For others, beauty may lie in the glistening rays of the sun reflecting on the clear blue surface of a calm river, bordered by majestic mountains.
Beauty may also lie in a persons mannerisms while he interacts with others. When a person has a helping hand readily available and are willing to go out of their way to help out a person, strangers or not, in times of need. Nothing says “GORGEOUS” like a man being polite and nice to the waiter, am I right?
At the end of the day, and I am sure many might agree, if you have a beautiful face, a banging body, long silky hair, but a down right ugly personality, then the latter cancels out everything else.
Outer beauty can only take you so far before your inner beauty shines through.
So, what is Absolute Beauty, for me?
It is when, a person who listens when the other party speaks, be able to carry on a conversation when the other is stumped, all that while having dreamy eyes that you can easily drown in.
