My Journey to Find and Attain Beauty

I wanted to start writing about my personal views and experience on my journey to find and attain beauty.  This is my first post regarding this subject and this will be an introduction for this category on my blog.

Beauty is one of the most powerful things in our universe.  I argue that it is the most powerful thing in our lives.  It is more powerful than politics, work, school, almost anything.  Wars have been started because of it.  Can you recall the story of Helen of Troy that was recently depicted in a recent Brad Pitt Movie.  Our world history is moved and shaped by Beauty to a large degree.  Remember, John F Kennedy and his victory over Nixon who was an incumbant president during war times.  The odds are the incumbant president usually wins.  Many believe that John F Kennedy’s win was largely due to his good looks and his charisma.  Kennedy lead one of the most powerful nations on the planet.  Beauty=Presidency=Major historical events.  Did you know that a 3 month old child is more likely to stare longer at pictures of better looking people than at people that are less good looking.  Did you know our mothers are more likely to check on their children left alone in the grocery cart when they are have better looks.  School children are given better grades when they are more beautiful while these differences largely disappear when they these children are compared by standardized tests. This power of beauty continues on through college, work, marriage and to the end of our lives.  This is why I have found this enigma, beauty, so fascinating.  This is why I have dedicated my life’s work to finding out what it is, how it changes our lives, and through my profession, how I can attain it for my patients.
