Rip It Up: Pay It Forward Friday

The following video made us think of the power of ripping up our unjustified-inaccurate-judgements-of-ourselves. After watching, perhaps it will leave you inspired to write down one thing that you've been beating yourself up about, then rip it up. Who knew ripping paper could help us see so beautiful?
How can you pay this message forward? Offer a compliment to a friend? Offer a compliment to a stranger? Remind someone of the ways they're beautiful? Go ahead, rip it up out there!
We're also participating in the Happiness Is... blog hop today, so if you're visiting from there, hope you found a bit of happiness, empowerment, and seeing beautiful! It's our Pay It Forward Friday!

  1. Woof! Woof! We LOVE the video. Golden Thanks for sharing. My mom believes that ...
    “When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance. The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”
    Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Oh, Sugar, you are so smart! That's exactly what we think too. Golden's have always had an enormous amount of wisdom. Sending lots of ear rubs your way!

  3. I get chills watching this. It's inspiring!

  4. This is really great! I've also seen this in another form: writing whatever it is that is bothering you on a chalkboard, and then erasing it at the end of the day. Very symbolizing of how much we should care what other's negative feelings are towards us. As long as we're right with God, we have nothing to worry about :)

    Stopping by from FTLOB!

  5. LET IT RIP!!!!! I have made my sign.... and it is...Sometimes I feel, not worthy of all the love that surrounds me,.... BUT... it is ripped. I accept the love and embrace it. Thank you for this video and Sugar.... Your Momma had it right! Ear rubs from me, too.....

  6. Love the video! So inspiring and so true!

  7. Oh, Sugar, we love you....and we loved what yohaves to share. My mom used to always say that "pretty is as pretty does." Your post made think of her today.

  8. I loved watching that video. It gave me goosebumps when they started ripping the papers. Beautiful.

  9. Wow, this is so powerful. My heart goes out to those people but I am so amazed by their courage to share their insecurities with the world. I hope you're right and this has helped them to see their beautiful :) I will try very hard to pay this forward!!

    Thanks for sharing this with us at Rub Some Dirt On It!
