Beauty is only skin deep and, if you aren't peaceful, relaxed and healthy, whatever beauty you may have, that others see in you, will soon be lost.

Mom used to always say, "It's what's inside that matters." Kind of like a beautiful apple pie crust - that's great - but if you cut into the pie and find a rotten filling, what is the pie worth? Nothing. Now, I'm not trying to compare people to pie but I'm sure you get the picture.

That's why I'm including this BIG BEAUTY BLOG post. Here, I'm going to talk about inner beauty. I honestly believe you can only look and feel your best, if you take a little "time-out" for yourself to regenerate, rejuvenate, and re-energize.

So, I'm just trying to encourage everyone to take time to relax. If you can't get a massage then maybe a nice long bath (remember the Calgon "Take Me Away" slogan?), or even a hot shower where you can spray some eucalyptus oil into the steam and have a nice moment of aromatherapy, it can't hurt and maybe it will help. At the very least, you'll probably have a more beautiful attitude.

How true your mother's words were. I have never heard the pie comparison, but it is perfect!

Good reminder to take time to relax. When the kids are crazy I have yelled, "Calgon, take me away!"

Nice comparison...A bubble bath sounds wonderful right now! "Calgon take me away!"...grin..

Rotten pie, Calgon, and hot showers - I'm not sure if that will seem very relaxing.

Oh, I so need a "Calgon, Take Me Away!" moment. I just took a hot bath, but it felt more like work. My six-year-old is rambling and walking around taking a million pictures. I would love to go put on my headphones and just zone for awhile. Sounds perfect to me!

Inner beauty. This is a very inviting topic. Will we hear more from you about what makes us beautiful on the inside?

I hope so.
