1. Walk with your head held high, your back straight and your heart full of joy.

2. Never pass up a chance to be kind, courageous or compassionate - the opportunities are more rare than you think.

3. Eat good food. It's the one pleasure (other than Golf) that you will be able to enjoy your entire life.

4. If it feels good do it. This includes but is not limited to: shaving (or not), giggling (or not), buying work out clothes (or not), wearing makeup (or not), breast augmentation (or not), hair color (or not), and...pie.

5. Every day think of 5 things you like about yourself that have nothing to do with what you see in the mirror.

hmmm... what else?

kathygator~ Thanks so much for the great info! I have such low self esteem and I am so hard on myself. My bf try's to help me and tells me all the sweet things but I have a hard time believing him.  But my point is I have been lost and it is hard to know where to start out on what I need to do to be happy with me. I will try these tips... Thank you! ^___^

Play on the swingset like you are five.  But be sure to give up your swing if a real five year old needs one!

 no way, i was on the swing fiiiiiirst!!!

Don't be afraid to get caught in the rain - everyone is always a better person when they get wet and don't mean to.

Take a second look at your traditions. Weigh them and decide if they fit your philosophy. Honor only those that pass muster. Create your own traditions.

Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

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!

Sam Levenson 

Posted October 1999

Contrary to what some may think, Audrey Hepburn did not write this beautiful poem, Sam Levenson did. Levenson wrote "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild, and it just so happened to be one of Audrey's favorite poems. She read it to her children on the very last Christmas Eve she spent with us here on Earth.

Special thanks to Nicholas Darrell for author information.

That was really beautiful, dkenworthy.

This is one of the best threads I have seen.

Thank you, KG.

Put yourself in someone else's shoes before judging them.
