I found this post at My Agapic Life where the author writes:
"There are times when I look into my own eyes into the mirror and admire the beauty of my soul. And, in some way, recognize my own true beauty within and literally what I look like when I'm doing it. It springs from total acceptance of myself."
I think that when we can totally accept ourselves for who we are, that is when we realize just how beautiful we truly are.
