To me beauty is raw. It is real. It is vulnerability and truth. It is freckled and flawed. It is opening up and it is passion. Beauty is the grit, and the grace that comes after the storm. Beauty is listening, and beauty is compassion. Beauty is not giving in, and not giving up on what you know is right. Beauty is the push through, and the sweat. Beauty is knowing who you are, or being on the path to discovering that.
