Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?

Beauty is in the eye on the beholder???? magnify
I popped round the pub this evening for a couple on pints. With a bar that has mirrors, it's not difficult to catch your own reflection. Tonight, I caught sight of myself and thought "That's a good looking guy sitting there!". Now I don't mean that in a vain sense. It's tempting to beat myself up about that. I got to thinking that it is actually more to do with my mood that matters.
I've had times in the past (and I can remember one) when I've caught my mirror image and hated it. I'd decided at that point that I was ugly, vulnerable, and worthless. Despite being somewhere I'd wanted to have fun and enjoy myself, the underlying feeling was dark.... full of low self esteem.
This last couple of weeks, I've felt really well with the new job and self confidence I've gained. There has been a glint in my eye. Folk have come and spoken to me in social situations more than usual.

So...... I ask the question. What is it about beauty.... or attractiveness???

I'm thinking, it doesn't matter how we look physically. If we are content and happy and there is a glint in the eye, people notice. We are complimented and I'd say that we become more attractive for that reason.

Looking back at what I've written above, I'm the same person physically regardless of my mood. In high spirits, I may see myself with enhanced attractiveness, but in a low mood I see myself as ugly. Maybe neither of those views are true, but a mood of high spirits, peace a relaxation projects a glint in the eye that is attractive.

Looking at ourselves and others, what do you think about the thoughts I've written down? Does it make sense? Is beauty in the eye of the beholder more to do with self and mood than just what we actually see?
