People argue about the origins of this popular phrase and whether it is true or false. As a visual artist I have drawn and painted many faces and many parts of faces in my life and in my experience it is always the eyes that are the most expressive elements of human body. The eyes show not only temporary emotions like fear, joy, anger, but also the general state of human condition. They show the inner beauty of a person and whether that person is trully happy or not.
I belive it is a good thing to take a few minutes and sincerely stare yourself in the eyes from time to time with a help of a mirror. What do your eyes tell about you? Are you doing your best in life or would you like to see yourself happier?
These short moments spent with your past and present life written in front of you are sometimes necessary to unlock the best of what your future holds.
