Operation Beautiful™

I don’t remember exactly how I stumbled upon this today, but what an incredible movement this is! The idea is to leave a “You are beautiful” message (post-its used most commonly) in some public place for a stranger to find. Imagine the smiles your note will create – and perhaps someone will even take your note and bring it home as a blessed reminder.

One of the fastest growing epidemics in this country is depression and low self-esteem. This movement really reaches out to help others in a creative and inspiring way. If you participate even just with ONE note, I guarantee you will feel uplifted, imagining who will discover your miraculous, encouraging note.

I had to do some errands today and decided to post some of my “BE-YOU-TIFUL” mirrors around town (a fun piece I made as a free download on my Create-A-Way website – see “fun freebies”). I ended up posting them in the changing rooms at Macy’s while trying on a few new things (see photo).

I also plan to write on the sidewalk in front of my house (I love sidewalk chalk).

I urge everyone to join this wonderful, playful movement.

    How wise and wonderful, Wendy! Thank you for sharing this! YOU are beautiful!! I love it and will participate as well as pass it on as an idea to others. We can all be mirrors to each other for the beauty that is US! I have a song that speaks to this; click on Find A Mirror lyrics/mp3 found onsite here: http://www.newthoughtfamilies.com/LSMusic/Seeker.html
    Namaste ~ the beauty in me celebrates & honors the beauty in you!
