You are more beautiful than you think.

If you haven't seen the video, 'Dove Real Beauty Sketches,' the latest addition to Dove's Real Beauty campaign, take a few minutes and watch it.


All the videos in Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty have really made an impact on me. In a world where cosmetic companies basically shame us into buying their products, it's refreshing to see these videos by Dove, even if they have the same intentions as all those other companies.

Why does it take another person, even a stranger, complimenting us or describing our looks in a positive way to make us feel beautiful? Why do we think the worst of ourselves?

I'm a pretty self-confident person, but even I am guilty of describing myself in a negative way. I can't tell you how many times Jonathan has given me a compliment and I immediately follow it up with something negative about myself. It doesn't happen all the time, but it shouldn't happen at all.

We all need to start seeing ourselves in a better light. We need to not only speak good things about our looks, but we need to believe them, too...with our whole hearts. We are so much more beautiful than we think we are. It's time to start recognizing that.

Like most things in life, I am reminded of an important lesson from the movie Bridesmaids. When in doubt, repeat this to yourself:

  1. BAhaha...that is one of my favorite parts from one of my favorite movies. I have seen this Dove campaign and thought it was great! I'm guilty of throwing negativity about myself out there. I definitely need to work on that.

  2. I love that movie! And yes it is so important for us as women to realize that we are beautiful no matter what. The images we've seen growing up definitely make it harder, but I try to stay as positive as possible! :)

  5. What a terrific reminder. I inherited a superb pot a number of many years in the
    past and in no way utilize it. Thanks!
