SMILE! You Are Beautiful!

A couple of weeks ago, I found the website "Operation Beautiful".

Here is the mission of this site:

The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.” If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Through my own experiences fighting Fat Talk, I’ve realized the power behind an anonymous act such as Operation Beautiful. When I post a note, I’m saying, “I CHOOSE to be positive!”

Participating in "Operation Beautiful" is sooooo simple. Just take a post-it note with a positive message and leave it in a public place e.g. bathrooms, fitting rooms, supermarkets and where ever else you want to leave a piece of encouragement.

Everyday, they post pictures and stories on this web page from people that left or found notes. Everyday, people all over the world, take a little time out of their day and scribble some encouraging words on a post-it note and leave it for someone that maybe needs to hear encouragement at that very moment.

Even though, the mission seems to mostly be propelled by young girls and women, it's a message that everyone needs to hear! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! YOUR CLOTHING SIZE DOESN'T DEFINE, WHO YOU ARE! Instead of focusing on the number on the scale, it's more important to make good living choices... eat healthy and exercise... Smile a lot, spend time with people you love...

Have a great weekend.
