Beauty is what you make of it. It is different in every sense. Every person has their own personal definition of beautiful; every person has their own take on what is pleasing to their eyes. I dare say that we can all agree on the idea that everything that God has personally created is beautiful. Every person, every landscape, every snowflake is beautiful in the most pure sense. Every snowfall, every sunrise, every sunset has its own personal meaning to it. Every star in the sky, and every smile and laugh from a friend brings to life a happiness and a joy within another.

Personally, my extension of beauty is music. God gave us the talent of making sounds for a reason. For me, that reason is a personal happiness that I cannot reach in anything else. The combinations of chords from a piano can relax me to the deepest extent that no amount of stress may ever be able to reach me. Each combination of sounds is moving and evokes an emotion from each of us whether you admit it or not. Classical pianists used to write scores and scores of music about a simple event such as watching the moonlight reflect across the water. When you listen to the music, you can almost picture the same event; you can almost feel the way the artist felt during the same event. You can realize the beauty in the scene and the music; they almost seem to complement each other.

Beauty is not models on the runway. It is not makeup that covers your face. It is not clothes that cover your body. It is not so many misconceptions that we think it is in this life. Beauty is pure emotion, pure happiness, pure joy.
