Perfection.

Is something invented by Madison Avenue and the creators of Photoshop:

Forever Healthy & Young

For all 60 before and after Photoshop pictures visit Forever Healthy & Young.

To me, the most beautiful people aren’t the ones who are “flawless.”

If you have a life that’s full of laughter—you are going to have wrinkles.

If you play, enjoy and spend time outdoors, you’re going to freckle.

If you live your life passionately, it’s going to show.

If you go through all of those things that carve away the bullshit and leave you raw and excellent and true—you aren’t going to have an expressionless, lineless photoshoppedface.

You will be real.

That’s what makes you beautiful.

This is a great piece by Craig Ferguson on the topic of the "Deification of Youth" via marketing agencies and modern media: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKUZ42T9diU

Good for a laugh as well as making a lot of sense, at least to me.

Real life sexy is soooo much more about how you FEEL than how you look. Be the person you feel good about and you will RADIATE beauty! Thanks for the reminder my compassionate friend. If you ever need help naming the constellations in your freckles let me know…
