This video proves that we are our own worst critics. I truly believe that throughout the years we start to internalize the negative feedback that we receive about our physical beauty which in turn manifests its ugly head in how we view ourselves.
Instead of being super critical of ourselves and others, why don’t we commit to being more positive while appreciating our own and others unique beauty. I have plenty of flaws/imperfections but I own them and have to live with them. I commit to loving the skin that I am in!
Dove has some really great projects that they’ve conducted on our perceptions of beauty. If you haven’t already viewed this video, I hope that you enjoy.

I hope that everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving Holiday! I definitely appreciated the holiday break not only for the delicious food, but for the time that it provided me to reflect on how thankful I am.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and always focusing on what’s the come….the future. At this time of the year, however I always take a moment to realize how thankful I truly am for the present because it really is a gift.
At this moment in time everyone who I care about is safe, healthy and so am I. For that I am thankful.
P.S…the card above was randomly given to me by an older lady who works in my building. I had no idea what to expect when she asked for my name. To my surprise she wanted to give me a card and wish me safe travels during the Thanksgiving Holiday. I told her that it really made my day and I’m glad that I took a second to ask her how she was doing and what her plans were for the upcoming holiday.
No matter how busy you are definitely remember to take a second and engage with those who are around you. Engage with the present moment.
