Woman 2: Feeling comfortable, feeling confident, connecting with other people. It helps to have a good hair day.
Woman 3: Being loved by my family, first and foremost. And also just being who I am. Allowing my inside to come out through the outside and not covering it up.

Woman 4: Knowing myself.
Woman 5: When my husband looks at me when I know I don’t look beautiful, and he gives me a big smile and says, “Your beautiful.”
Woman 6: Giving to other people. I think when you’re being benevolent when you’re being kind to someone else. Kindness, there you go. Kindness. Kindness is beautiful.
Woman 7: I make myself feel sexy
Interviewer: Awesome answer.
Woman 8: If I’m feeling okay with myself, if I feel like I’m living right and doing the right things by the people around me, and treating myself right, I feel beautiful.
Woman 9: Wisdom, knowledge, experience, life, all of that make me feel beautiful because I feel like all of that starts to show on the outside. And it’s how you express yourself and how you’ve lived life, that shows the most in your skin.
Interviewer: And we can celebrate that.
Woman 9: Yes.
Woman 10: Confidence to me is something that makes me feel beautiful.
Woman 11: I know when I look at myself, my face, my hair, and my whole well-being, I feel beautiful, yeah.
Interviewer: Just being…
Woman 11: Being, yes.
Woman 12: What makes me feel beautiful? Really, my sense of self-worth and my confidence is what really makes me feel beautiful. But then, you know, there’s the added, you know, silver hair, which, yeah, I just…I love it. It feels good on me.
Woman 13: What makes me feel beautiful is really, truly, being outdoors and having that sun shine on my face. Just feel healthy. I think feeling healthy makes me feel beautiful. I think if you’ve got that, you got everything else going in the world. Then you can put on some BOOM! and, you know, your day starts.
