Don't be fooled into thinking that at the end of your life people will gather and mourn because of your external qualities (beauty, physique, etc..) and materialistic value. When they speak of beauty, they will be referring to what you gave back to the world: kindness, generosity, respect, and your spirit. Even celebrities pay a steep price to be mourned for decades, their life's work.
We often get brainwashed with society's conditioning, allowing the external appearance to have more bearing than the internal content of our character. While physical appearance, material things, and reaching our personal measure of success may be an achievement, it does not hold a candle to a good-heart that is careful of how others are treated and living with high moral value and integrity.
"I'm always reminded to check my heart, for it will dictate how I treat others and what I give back to the world daily."
