Girl You’re Amazing just the way you ARE!
Have you heard about Operation Beautiful?
The Mission – from the founder of OB, Caitlin
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!”
I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. I scribble down whatever comes to mind — “You are beautiful!” or “You are amazing just the way you are!” My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.
HELP OUT: Caitlin is looking for a teen to share her experiences with cyber bullying in the second Operation Beautiful book. If you’d like to share your story, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are pictures from young women all over the country who have either found or posted these messages in bathrooms and public places for other women to see.
Love Operation Beautiful and want to participate? Post a note, take a picture, and e-mail your story to Caitlin at OperationBeautiful@gmail.com. Each note goes up on the site for thousands of others to read and enjoy! Make a change in this world… it starts with YOU!
We can start by encouraging, most importantly, ourselves. We’ve got to have love for ourselves before we are able to give it to another. I always have affirmations posted all over the place!!
You really ARE beautiful and don’t ever forget it!! And if you do, come back here and I’ll remind you!! Now share the message with the world like Bruno Mars!
Girl you’re amazing just the way you are!
