A Wonderful Wednesday: You ARE beautiful

Hello friends!

I saw something today that spurred me to create "Wonderful Wednesday". After all, who doesn't need a little boost by this point in the week? So, every Wednesday, I'll try to give you a wonderful thing to look at.

This week, a Dove Beauty video that I received in my email courtesy of Refinery 29

Before you watch, know that while it does produce the warm fuzzies, it's also a little sad and you might want to have a kleenex or two nearby.

Head over to youtube and check it out here:

I found this absolutely fascinating. Growing up, especially as women, we're subject to all this information about appearances and what they should be. There are entire industries devoted to it! 

This video really made me think. I woke up with less than perfect skin the other day and spent a good 5 minutes making myself absolutely miserable over my reflection. After watching the video and thinking back... I was making mountains out of molehills. I'd be willing to bet that nobody even noticed, it was only me that saw this so called "imperfection" and I was the only person who cared about it.

I don't mean to go totally crunchy-granola on you, but I am a firm believer that happy people and people who love outwardly are absolutely beautiful. Audrey said it best...

Found here:

"For beautiful eyes, look for the food in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
--Audrey Hepburn

You freakin' go girl. 

Beauty doesn't come in a bottle, or a tube... it comes from you. Take care of yourself, strip negative forces from your life, and let your inner beauty shine out. You're a gorgeous and blinding force of nature.

Do something today that makes you happy and shine on!
