You're Beautiful

I was on hold for a few moments today and as I often do, I put the annoying music/advertising on my speaker, turned it down so it was just loud enough to hear when a human picked up.
I then clicked on Google + to see what was coming across the virtual wire. One of the things that jumped out at me was a video that had been shared by someone I'm following. The woman had commented, this made me cry.
I clicked on it for a second expecting to see some sappy video, but instead what I saw was remarkable.
I won't do a spoiler here but this short video (3 minutes) illustrates a very important point....it's something that most of us (except the most narcissistic among us) are guilty of.
I'd be interested in your reaction.


  1. ok, so I cried....not only for myself, but for all women.

    1. Me too. I actually thought one of them was going to ask "Why do I hate myself?"

      Brilliant. Simply Brilliant.

  2. I have the unique opportunity to see people everyday from the "inside out" so to speak..The human body never fails to amaze me in the way it functions and repairs and heals...even when we do are best to ruin it. We are beautiful inside and unfortunately we don't think the outside is ever good enough..atleast I don't most times. This is a wonderful video and a great way to see ourselves as others and God sees us. Dove has done alot to promote beauty and to promote "real" beauty, not the air brushed version of model beauty. Thanks for sharing this...I'll have to show this one to some friends! And yes, I did cry too.

  3. I just saw this on Facebook tonight. Fabulous!

  4. So sweet and so sad...so much time wasted in worrying about imaginary flaws, and fearing that others judge us as harshly as we do ourselves.

  5. Very nice video. I wish there where more normal people with there imperfections in advertisment, billboards and magazines then society would look different I think.

  6. Very interesting. No one's perfect. As we age, I think we accept ourselves more and are content with our lot. They should have tried an old person. Say in their 80's or 90's, I'm sure the outcome would be different. The pictures would be so similar you wouldn't be able to differentiate between the two. Great video.

  7. I saw something about this on the Today show yesterday. Two women talked about how they described themselves vs. the way another person described them. They said that they learned to see themselves in a much more favorable way. This seems to be an experience most of us could use.


  8. Awwwww this is just lovely! And sad in a way! It's also interesting that it's all women - perhaps this is reflective of just how much women are under pressure to look a certain way? Where are the men!??!

    Take care
