Kim and Son, January 2009

Tell us why you felt at your best in this moment:

I feel at my best whenever I’m sharing new experiences with my little guy. The innocence of a child’s excitement is contagious; they can make you feel like you’ve created magic even when you’ve done the most simple of tasks—like plan a trip. In this photo, we were on vacation at Walt Disney World with extended family. The weather was exquisite and the parks were exciting; but my favorite part of the trip was watching my son’s reactions to everything and knowing that I helped to create this memorable experience for him.

How do you define beauty:

Beauty is genuineness. There’s a light that just shines from someone who is being their authentic self. They may not be the most “traditionally” beautiful person in the room, but there is something about them that just makes people stare in appreciation.

How do you define happiness:

I can find a little bit of happy in the trees, at the bottom of a cup of green tea, in my son’s smile or in a yoga pose; in short—happiness can be found everywhere, if we let it in. Happiness is peace. Peace is knowing that you’re being guided and cared for by a force greater than you. Peace, joy and happiness: they’re our birthright.

Your turn! Send your pics in to and tell us why you felt happy and beautiful and at your best in that moment. Feel free to share your favorite quotes about happiness and beauty and we'll include them with your feature. Please put AT YOUR BEST in the subject line.
