Beauty and youth can be such great distractions.The young and the beautiful often think they are invincible but don’t realize that their glory diminishes with age.
One day we wake up terrified, after catching a few wrinkles and white hairs here and there. Then we realize like all who came before us, that we are loosing the charm of youth. Since we built our lives and worth on these fleeting attributes, we begin to dread the future. We suddenly realize that we have nothing else to fall back on; No investments outside of beauty and youth.
If beauty and youth is all we allowed ourselves to be known for, we wont be of interest to anyone in our older years.
Be wise cultivate real virtues that last!
