What Do These Words Mean?

Just wanted to let you know, on Mondays you can also find me here. Today, I wrote about a little beauty experiment I want people to think about, especially women. Go check it out and let me know what you discover.

Why is it that our culture has such a confused definition of beauty? It led me to think of all the other things that don't hold to a noble or consistent meaning anymore, such as success, stillness, quality, rich, awesome or amazing, invest, comfort, integrity or even respect.

What are some words that you think have changed in definition so much so that you aren't even sure what they mean anymore in our culture?

    Oh, yeah. That word has certainly changed since I was a teenager :)

  2. "Beauty" and "modesty" have definitely shifted in meaning!
