Vanity.....a misunderstood concept.

Vanity:   something that is vain, empty, or valueless, the quality or fact of being vain.   Vain:  having or showing undue or excessive pride in one's appearance or achievments.   
Simply looking at the definitions of these two words make vanity seem so bad right......Well I have a much different opinion.
Artists, singers, actors/actresses, anyone who openly discusses any body modification or improvements are usually labeled vain.  

Have you ever thought about where a majority of our earned income, cars, home improvement, bills, groceries, everything but our own body.

Have you ever thought about the fact that while most of your money is going to your car, your house, to your furniture....that all these items are temporary.  Actually the only house you will have until your last breath is your own body.  Yep that's will live in your own body longer than any house you will ever buy and improve upon.  

So why is it seen as acceptable to pimp your ride, re-paint the house, re-roof the house, hire a landscaper, put on addition, and install new windows....but the minute someone spends a little money getting a nip, tuck, suck, or plump up-they are seen as vain.
I am not on a soap box promoting plastic surgery, great haircuts, having nicely done eyebrows.  I am simply saying that spending income on your own flesh is a wise investment because for once income is spent on the house you actually live in.  So if someone calls you vain b/c you had a little botox, a little lipo, a little eyebrow lift.....they just don't have a clue-they are probably off spending hundreds on a tv they will watch for a bout 3 years only to buy another one.   

The concept of Vanity is silly....Vanity is simply having enough sense to realize that your body is worth more too you than a new sent of rims for your car.  

Live on and look great Vain ones :-)
