"To me, beauty is a state of mind, an energy. I think if you rely too much on surface beauty, you're fighting a losing battle! So I prefer to practice working from the inside out. In a world of harsh criticism of body shapes and faces that aren't perfectly symmetrical, I choose to teach my children that embracing individuality, a caring heart, laughter and truthful yet compassionate expression is real beauty. The only way to teach them is to live it with them, so I try to be mindful of this every day. That's my beauty secret."
