"Time Tested Beauty Tips" by Sam Levenson

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows,
and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Genuine Happiness of the Day: Redditor TheLakesnapped this heartwarming photo of a Kenyan kindergartner who just finger-painted for the very first time.

They explain:

I took this photo while studying abroad in Kenya during the Spring of 2010. A few friends and I were about to climb Mt. Longonot when we stumbled upon a pre-primary (kindergarten) school. A week later we returned with school supplies for the 30+ students who attended the school. We have since started a non-profit organization to raise money to provide the children with a daily meal, school supplies, de-worming medicine, and a new school.

Thanks to the nonprofit, construction of a brand new school for the kids is scheduled to begin in January.

You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognising what you have for what it is; appreciating small victories, admiring the struggle it takes to simply be here. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know and maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.
