This video produced by Dove, has been floating around the web.
I love it.
The first time I watched it...I tried to answer the questions he was asking...
Describe your hair...
What would you say is your most prominent feature?
As I thought about my face...I did exactly as the women in the video...
I minimized myself.
I described an ugly version of me.
How sad. But the reality is...we are all so hard on ourselves.
What a great reminder of how NOT to treat yourself.
Beauty...seems like such a controversial word in a way.
What is beauty?
We may all describe it differently...but I hope this video has helped to change the definition of beautiful for ourselves.
You are beautiful, just the way you are.
Be gently with yourself.
Be kind to yourself.
