Better To Be Smart Than Beautiful

Spread the love

There are events it our lives that can forever change us. The following article brought a tear to my eye as I read about a mother’s fear of a life time of values culminating in one pivotal moment … the moment her mother met her daughter.

My mother always told me it was better to be smart than to be beautiful. “If you are smart, eventually you will afford to be beautiful.”

Have you ever experienced a time in your life where you, or someone close to you, had your values, beliefs or opinions challenged? What was the outcome?
