While I originally planned to check in on my fitness journey today, I stumbled upon a video that I knew I had to share. (Trust me, it's worth the 3 minutes!)
(And just in case you're bawling like a baby, just know that I did too.)
There will always be body or facial features that we're less than fond of.
With airbrushed ads in magazines, reality shows with unrealistic expectations and even style bloggers who seem to have it all, how could we not?
But it's important not to just "accept" these features we aren't fond of, it's about realizing that those features exemplify the true beauty in being an individual.
The beauty of being you.
It's knowing that the features we perceive as unattractive on ourselves might not be seen the same by others (and may even be considered unique or beautiful!)
But more importantly they're part of who we are.
How we perceive ourselves affects us and the way we interact with the world and we can control that.
So let's make an effort to love ourselves today and everyday, for who we are.
Here's to lookin' at you beautiful. (yea YOU, reading this post!)
I was not compensated in any way for this post but this campaign alone makes me a HUGE fan of what Dove stands for. I applaud you Dove, thank you on behalf of women everywhere!
