True Beauty Tips

Source: CupCakeMonster2
Yesterday I posted about the story of a pastor who lived homeless for a week, and how an incorrect story circulated the internet, causing arguments over the validity of the story - all the while distracting us from the truth and the great valid message it teaches.

While I was researching that, I came across a poem that gets misquoted but has a great message of true beauty. It is often mis-attributed to the beautiful Audrey Hepburn. In reality, she didn't pen this but she did quote it often as a favorite of hers.

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/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise,
Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things,
Have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,
And redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
You will find one at the end of each of your arms.

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