Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. ~Gwyneth Paltrow

I’ve seen this article posted on about half of my friends Facebook feeds in the last week.  Finally, last night right before bed, I took the time to see what all the fuss was about.  I watched the YouTube video and I got it.  I bawled.  If you haven’t watched it, click on this link here and go do it now.  I’ll wait.

Dove Real Beauty

Really – go watch it!

Are you moved?  Did you cry?  It’s ok if you did.  I certainly did.  I know without a shadow of a doubt that I am more beautiful than I realize.  This is something I struggle with Every. Single. Day.  It doesn’t help that I’m overweight but I think that every woman has this same struggle.  Only a very small percentage of us actually see ourselves the way we are.

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  What do you see when you look in the mirror?
