I AM BEAUTIFUL…Just the Way I Am

Oh my goodness, you guys!  Your response to I Am Beautiful…Just the Way I Am was so sweet and lovely!  I loved reading all your comments, and LOVE that the general consensus is that beauty comes in all forms and springs from places unseen.

I’m so tickled by those of you who were willing to show us your real selves – the everyday you, as the world sees you – not just the you that’s primped and curled and ready for the camera (though, don’t worry, I’ll give you the chance for that soon!).

Here you are, dear friends.  Beautiful you, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!

A big hug to all of you who participated in February’s I AM BEAUTIFUL campaign!  Each and every one of you are lovely beyond measure!

p.s.  This week (February 26th through March 3rd) is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.  August McLaughlin has a fabulous interview on her blog with filmmaker Diane Israel.  Diane is an amazing woman with incredible perspective on the topic of true beauty.  I highly recommend you check it out!

p.p.s.  I have something really fun planned for March’s I AM BEAUTIFUL, so stay tuned!

    TOO fun, Myndi. What a great idea and beautiful women “just the way they are.” Your daughter’s pic gives me grins no matter now many times I see it. She is a cutie.

    Intention met Procrastination on my trek to send a pic to you. Guess which one dominated the conversation.

    LOVELY idea and pictures.

    What a super fabulous post and so much fun! Now I wish I’d put my pups in there with me, they would’ve had some great company. We really ARE beautiful just the way we are! Thanks doll, love you bunches.

    Hi Myndi, what beautiful women! And your young woman, the daughter, gorgeous!

    I have not photos to send you. I don’t like the camera. I’ve never liked the camera.

    While I don’t wear make-up everyday while I am at home, I do not make it a practice to go out in public without it. Why scare the rest of the population I say.

    So unfortunately, no photos from me. But I will be enjoying this! I know, I’m bad and being a party pooper, but it is what it is. 🙂

    I love this idea, Myndi! It clearly shows how much you appreciate all kinds of beauty in others. Great photos of everyone. I wanted to send mine but I was too late. Sigh. Maybe next time – makeup or not, it doesn’t matter. I can go either way 🙂
