If you haven’t read or listened to Marianne Williamson’s A Woman’s Worth, you just may fall in love with her spiritual perspective on beauty. In my experience, the greatest expression of beauty is when the inside and outside are aligned in a way that makes us feel authentic and whole. We are happiest when what we feel inside matches what we show to the outside world, which is not limited to our physical appearance, but includes our ways of speaking, writing and connecting.
If a conventionally beautiful woman has a hateful or bitter heart, she will not radiate beauty. And if a woman who writes delicious poetry — expressing the full human experience — covers herself in dark clothing and mumbles when she speaks, we will never have the gift of seeing her fully. And we want to see her.
