Operation Beautiful

I did something really wonderful yesterday (actually i wrote this post two months ago)  I took the Operation Beautiful challenge (read about it here ) I went in to the bath room at work and did this….



 I posted this sticky note for all to see.  Operation Beautiful was created to encourage positive body image!  The challenge is to stick a post it note with a positive message somewhere for others to see .  IE: the scale at the gym….the bus stop….a bathroom…..the fridge at work…a car window…..anywhere where it will be seen. 


  • There never could be a more beautiful You
  • You are ALREADY gorgeous
  • Be the goddess inside you
  • Know you are loved
  • You are beautiful

 What a wonderful idea. Can you imagine seeing a note like that as you stepped on the scale at the gym or as you opened your car door after a long day at work??  So, I do have to admit, I felt a little funny doing this at first….I made sure no one was in the bathroom  and then hurry and snapped the photo…After I walked away…I felt great! I thought about it all day.  “You are beautiful and YOU deserve to BELIEVE it”. Say it to yourself.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we treated ourselves daily to little reminders us of how beautiful we truly are?  This is the Power of positive thoughts in action!  TRY IT!  If you do and want to send me the picture, i’d love to see it!

    You are very inspiring! I love this post and shared it with my Mom-in-law and Brother-in-law who are starting their “diet” today. This way they have something positive to think about as they do so.

      Thanks Sarah! That is great. We all need a little kick in the butt sometimes to remind us that we aren’t as bad as we think we are! 🙂 Thanks for commenting!
