You are More Beautiful Than You Think

If there was ever a video to watch on our blog, this one might just take gold (our willingness to make it a repeat post should be a testament to its brilliance and power).

The following social experiment, hosted by Dove, asked women to do two things: 1) describe herself to a forensic artist; and 2) describe another person they'd just met to the artist. Watching the thinking, sharing, and emotion unfold moved us to tears. The following few minutes will leave you seeing beautiful in the reflection of two sketches: one that reflects self-doubt and criticism projected from pop culture and another reflecting beauty one possesses.

This video is an important, beautiful reminder that it's okay to see beautiful in the reflection staring back at you in the mirror because there is SO MUCH beauty there. Whether others know you intimately or not, they see beautiful. Passing strangers on the street see your softness, your kindness, your beauty. Those who love you see your softness, your kindness, your beauty. It's time for you to see it too.

  1. Such an emotional video. I believe that 98% see ourselves as the "Self" portrait, but how nice to be reminded that we need to remove those inner mirrors and see through a stranger's eyes. Thank you.

  2. Oh my that is powerful. Thank you for sharing and lifting and sharing such beauty.

  3. Brought tears to my mom's eye. This is not the 1st time she's seen this video, This was a video discussion with her yoga group, perception self vs perception of others. Powerful and great reminder to self. Golden LOVE. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar


Thank you for sharing your thoughts & helping others see beautiful too!
