A Bea-U-tiful Revolution

Have you seen this? The O Girl Beautiful Revolution - is wonderful! Of course, it's another wonderful inspiring, possibly life altering/changing ideas or experience from Oprah. I think it might really be geared more towards "young girls" (ahem) and not us "older" women. (wink, wink) BUT nonetheless I am taking her up on her challenge! I have printed and signed my contract and am going to purchase a small "Beauty" jounal just for this! The contract states to "each day write down at least one thing about myself that makes me special." I am going to encourage my six year old daughter to join me as well and we can make sure each of us keeps our pledge everyday. I am sure she will jump on board as she loves to write in her "journal" now that she is able to read and sound out words. She loves to draw too so I imagine her "beauty" journal, as I call it, will be very special to look back on in years to come. And what Mom doesn't love an activity that can reinforce for the millionth time how special and beautiful her kids are to her. I'm all for that!!!!

Anyone else taking the challenge? It will be fun to see as this revolution spreads and blossoms the stories and followups Oprah may have on her shows next
fall. If this project "speaks" to you or tugs at your heart strings I hope you will answer in the way that is fitting for you life. As Oprah says, "What I know for sure is that you really don't become what you want. You become what you believe."

Along the same importance of this new "revolution" from Oprah, I want to share a few videos with you. If you haven't seen these please take a moment to watch them. They are not long, under a minute or 2, and if you want to grab your girls and sit them on your lap no matter how old they are (wink), even better. The first one is "Real Beauty"and the second is "how beauty is made".
