The August issue of Real Simple (www.realsimple.com) includes  a great article: “What makes me feel beautiful.”  It features essays by women writers such as Winifred Gallagher, author of Rapt: Attention and the Focused Life and Asha Bandele, author of Something Like Beautiful: One Single Mother’s Story, Daughter, and Prisoner’s Wife.  Below are excerpts from the essays written by Winifred and Asha. Winifred wrote about how being active every day makes her feel beautiful. Asha wrote about how writing makes her feel beautiful.

Winifred – “That exercise makes me feel beautiful, struck me around age 40, right after I had taken a quick run… The way to stay lively is to stay active.”

Asha – “Writing requires us to take the world on more slowly, to notice its harshness as well as its richness.  Writing reduces the chaos in my mind.  As the gospel song says, it orders my steps and makes me feel in control of myself and therefore appreciative of the world.”
