What Does it Mean to be Beautiful?

Elizabeth Craig Photography Lifestyle Beauty Photographer-003It's such a subjective question, but a powerful one. Here's what I love about asking this question: I have never ever had anyone define "beauty" as being a concept based solely on looks. Here is a definition I can get on board with that I just found by Beth Ditto:

"I truly believe that beauty isn't just about being beautiful. It's about being interesting."

That's. Just. Yummy. And I'm all covered in the fuzzy warmsies with the awesomeness of how true that statement really is. I would take an interesting conversation over a jaw-dropping stare-fest any day of the week.

And I'm doing the Snoopy dance here. Wanna know why? Because we are all interesting, ergo, we are all beautiful. Don't get me wrong, I've had some prey-ty snoozy convo's with some folks I found not-so-interesting...but it makes no matter because I am smartypants enough to know that even though I may not find your every word a cliffhanger, someone out there does.

And that's just beautiful.
