Beauty Starts With Me
You Are Enough! You Are Beautiful!
Have you ever felt uncomfortable because of your appearance?
A few weeks ago, I had a very uncomfortable experience. I didn’t feel pretty enough. Enough for what? That question got me going. I started wondering about how others define the concept of beauty. I did a Google image search for the word “Beauty” and I was SHOCKED at the images that I saw!
That same day, I saw an image of a young lady who had been bullied by her class. Someone tried to shame her body with graffiti. She reacted in an awesome way. Here’s an article about the incident.
The next morning, as I sat in the dentist’s chair, I saw an interview of a young lady who produced a music video about healthy body image. I did not remember the name of the young lady. The important thing to note is that I left the dentist’s office with a strong desire to see the world through different eyes.
I am beautiful.
I see beautiful things.
I see the beauty in you.
Beauty. Starts. With. Me.
Beauty. Starts. With. You.
I wanted to do something tangible to promote the idea of beauty. Real beauty. So I created a website called BeautyStartsWithMe.com and have started to share posts on social media with the hashtag #BeautyStartsWithMe.
Please take a few minutes to read the stories, poems, or watch the videos posted, etc… Each entry is inspirational.
Please help me spread the word by sharing your story and using the following hashtag on social media sites: #BeautyStartsWithMe.
