You are beautiful!

Oh, that this website I have found, could be viewed by every Woman and Girl on Earth!

What an awesome concept! My deepest admiration goes out to the exemplary Ladies who have created it!

http://iambeautiful.com/

Their credo: "Our mission is simple: to create a world in which every woman and girl can proudly proclaim, "I Am Beautiful!"

"How do we redefine feminine beauty to make it more inclusive? How do we combat the damaging media messages and distorted cultural ideals about women and beauty? How do we show our daughters, sisters, friends, mothers and grandmothers the power in naming their own beauty?

Self-acceptance is the first step.
That is what the I Am Beautiful Project is all about: self-esteem through
self-discovery!"


And They even quote the delightful Audrey Hepburn, one of my most favorite people, who was and eternally will be beautiful in body, mind and soul:

"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness;
for lovely eyes, seek out the good in people;
for beautiful hair, let a child run her fingers through it once a day."

Ah the delightful Audrey Hepburn. She suffered greatly in the second world war I believe growing up in Holland.

Then I must have beautiful hair - because I've had a lot of sticky kid fingers in it!

Kat: Audrey was and always will be a being of almost unearthly beauty. But perhaps I should not have included Her photo, as it seems to be drawing attention away from the main point of the article,which is that incredible website.

LGS: I am happy to have found this site, very, very happy.

Middle Ditch: Thank you for visiting my blog. Indeed, little Audrey was quite the brave Girl during the war, carrying resistance messages inside Her shoes and such.

Citizen: Beautiful Your hair must surely be, indeed, if it graces the head of a Woman who is loved by children, sticky fingers and all.
