Own Your Beauty. Change The Conversation.
We are the beautiful people. All women. Every one of us. And that's amazing.
Let's collaborate on a definition of beauty that celebrates what makes each of us unique, inside and out.
Instead of measuring ourselves against some airbrushed, Photoshopped ideal, let’s tailor the standard of beauty to suit ourselves.
Instead of feeding our insecurities about our appearance, let’s nourish our sense of self.
Instead of focusing on what we believe to be flaws, let’s look at our reflection and smile with satisfaction.
Let’s recognize the beauty of our strength, our dignity, our ambition, our curiosity, our quirky humor, our compassion and our passion.
Let’s take all the energy we've spent on endless loops of negative feedback about everything from the way we live our lives to our butts, our hips, our boobs and, for pete's sake, even our ankles - and use it instead to power something positive and meaningful.
Let's celebrate the beauty of authenticity and share it with everyone we know.
It’s about time.
Own Your Beauty. Change the Conversation. Pass it On.
