happiness is the only thing you need for true beauty

I have these photos that line the shelf right next to my full-length mirror in my room. The photos are only recent, but they put the frames I received for my 21st birthday to good use.

I've begun to realise that having those photos there are a wonderful way to start my day. They are photos with friends, photos of happiness, that radiate of smiles and love, and in this current world where nothing seems to be stable or safe, these photos remind me of happier times.

It seems a small miracle to possess photos in which I can look at them and say... "hey, I LIKE these photos", but it's true. I can start my day by seeing these photos as I put my moisteriser on my face, and remembering how blessed I am to have such wonderful friends that make me feel beautiful. These are the moments captured in time, where beauty and love can be kept for an eternity. You can search high and low for the magical formula for perfect skin, for the right makeup to cover up any imperfections, but when it comes down to it, happiness is the only ingredient you need for true beauty.
