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!

Look at all those pretty women! I love your daughter. And here I am putting graffiti all over mine. LOL
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.
No worries, Gloria! You’ll get a chance next month. Tune in next week to see what the ‘assignment’ is! 🙂
I’m actually in my jammies in my photo, Myndi … but I must confess I probably still have my mascara on! What can I say?
Gorgeous women beautiful JUST as they are!! Luv it…wonderful post Myndi and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in March…squeeee…
LOVED everyone’s pictures! A post that makes you smile and smile!! Well done, Myndi. 🙂
I love this post — so sorry I missed your earlier one.
Thanks! Be sure to check in next Wed – March’s I AM BEAUTIFUL is going to be super fun!
This is awesome! I almost you a pic. Almost. Maybe next month 😀
Okay, Melinda – I’m holding you to it! Next month! And it’s gonna be FUN. 🙂
Awesome post Myndi!
You always know how to make people smile and feel good – that is a true gift you have.
And all these women – so beautiful! Can’t wait to see what you have coming for us in March.
Aw, great pics! Love this post!
Aw, these are so sweet.
Wonderful pics, all! Each of us is so unique, never ceases to astound me.
There’s something radiant about people who like themselves as they are! You can see it in these images.
My gorgeous Wonder Wife never–ever–wears make-up, and I love that. I deeply appreciate the post. Brilliant idea, Myndi.
Awesome blog. The pictures are so telling. Everyone is BEAUTIFUL. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next month.
What a great looking group of folks! This is a really encouraging thing that you’re doing Myndi. I hope you keep it up. So nice to see natural beauty and glowing hearts!

This was wonderful! I had planned to get you a picture and got sick (everything kind of fell apart), so hopefully I’ll be able to participate in whatever you have lined up next.
No worries, Marcy! Next time!
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.
You and this post are beautiful, Myndi! So chock full of real, heart-felt loveliness. Thanks for doing this. Can’t wait for your next batch.
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 🙂
Definitely next time, Angela! *hugs*
Such cute photos! Can’t wait to see what’s coming up in March!
Beautiful, just beautiful. Each and every one!
