On Beauty

I have not had time to blog today. Too busy fretting over whether or not to start Bella on to solids (6 months yesterday and feeding ALL NIGHT!) and trying to get some actual paid commissions for a change. Check me out next week for my thoughts and experiences of baby-led introduction to solids (with favourite recipes thrown in), and more...

For now, here is something beautiful that I have up on my wall to remind me how I want to live my life. Hope you find it as inspiring as I do. Have a lovely weekend all.

On beauty, (Audrey Hepburn's words, as she approached the end of her life.)

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 their fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
