Transforming What You See
You may have heard of the recent revolution: Operation Beautiful; I heard about it over the summer on the Today show & later heard about it on KSBJ (the local Christian radio station). Our society is very fixed on appearances, & unfortunately has made us very critical of ourselves. Operation Beautiful started out as a blog of a woman, Caitlin, leaving post-its with messages of positive encouragement on mirrors in public bathrooms, at the gym, at work, etc. for other women to find. Her goal was to “transform the way we see ourselves, one post-it at a time.” The movement has grown & more women have started to leave post-it notes everywhere. The new book, Operation Beautiful, includes pictures & stories of post-it notes left & how they impacted & truly encouraged the recipient. I know of teachers who have started to encourage their students with positive post-it notes & parents who have started to send positive post-its to school with their children. I think this is a great way to remind someone how beautiful they are & what a precious treasure we are to God because we are His masterpiece. If you get a chance to check out the book or the website . I would highly recommend it, and maybe leave a post-it for someone else today. By the way, you’re stunningly gorgeous!
