You Are Beautiful

I was actually going to post about something different today, but I just came across a blog that led me to this video, and I was truly touched. Ever since I found out I was pregnant with a girl, I knew one thing I wanted to do was to have a positive self image about myself so that I could be a good example to her. And I know that she is young right now, but habits are hard to break and hard to make, and I have been horrible about vocally criticizing myself. To be honest, I've always struggled some with my self esteem. I don't know where I got it from, but I do not want to pass it on to my daughter. And seeing this video and this project has reinforced my want to have her grow up with a good self esteem and it has re-motivated me to not be so hard on myself. I think this is something that could benefit every woman out there! For more information, and to see more of the notes being left, visit

I think that's so awesome! It sort of makes me want to cry (but everything makes me want to cry these days, I guess).

Thanks for sharing this. I've always had a horrible self esteem problem and still do. I know where my comes from though. There's no way I could ever fit in my mom's wedding dress. Looking at pictures of her my eyes she was SOO skinny. Like skin and bone skinny. She was one to have a baby and not ever look like she did. So it's hard not to compare.. But a friend did tell me instead of saying Dieting say you are eating healthy to your kids. If you're kids ask about working out, say it's to be healthy..not that you are trying to lose weight. :)
