Beauty leads to happiness, but not in the way most people think. I'm not referring to physical appearance leading to contentment, I'm talking about all the wonderful things around you that can make your life deeply joyful. Many people spend their entire lives living without any beauty (kindness, wonder, laughter, softness) around them but there is always the opportunity available to appreciate what's going on inside you and in your environment.
Take time each day to admire all the beauty around you. Enjoy beauty through nature, art, literature, architecture, music, humor, people watching or simply contemplate the beautiful things in your life or in the world in general. Celebrate how beautiful you are inside and all the wonderful things you do. There is so much beauty around you, you can tap into it at any moment to feel great about yourself and the world you live in, and none of it has to do with physical looks.
