Being hip nowadays is very common. The impressions made by our physical appearance can some times become destiny. We end up somewhere, i.e. working, getting a life partner or just being included in a certain set of people. However, despite all that, we are who we are. We know what others don’t know about us – our hidden secrets and talents. But, some things, even we don’t know about ourselves that take us by surprise. Continue reading “Hidden Beauty”
