Have 3 Minutes? This is a Must Watch...

I'm not sure if you've seen this brilliant experiment by Dove yet, but it will blow you away.

Dove hired an FBI-trained forensic artist to interview and draw several women. The artist couldn't see any of the women, and based the first drawings solely off of the description that each women gave of herself.

Next, the women were told get to know another woman in that group. And one by one, the artist brought up the woman's partner and based a second drawing off of their description of that woman. To see the two distinctly different photo side by side is incredible.

Take a look...




How incredible is it to see our own critical self-image verses through the eyes of the world.
We're too harsh on ourselves and our imperfections.


It's time to embrace true beauty.
It's time to thrive in our uniqueness.

It's time to encourage each other.


I think we all need this reminder, so please pass the message of truth on.

And remember, you ARE beautiful.
(and that's the truth.)

  5. I remember telling someone this, cannot remember who, but I have a friend who does research on this type of thing. She did a year long experiment called Mirror Mirror off the Wall and she's a great motivator. http://www.ayearwithoutmirrors.com/ It takes a lot for one to realize but yes we should embrace ourselves daily!

  14. I totally agree that sometimes we are our roughest critics. As odd as it may be, when I was watching Ready for Love the other day, one of the matchmakers said something that struck me. It was something like 99% of people let their actions be determined by what they think others are going to think about it. And I think that's the same with how we view ourselves--we let a lot of other influences (or things that we THINK will be thought) rule how we feel about ourselves. We need to be healthy, body, soul AND mind!
