Operation Beautiful

What reflective object do you hate the most?

Well, don't hate them. Because Guess What?!

About a year ago, I read about Operation Beautiful in AllYou Magazine. Last night, after recalling the name of it, I did a little bit of research on it and found the official website. Here she states:

The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.”  If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is  — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store.  I scribble down whatever comes to mind — "You are beautiful!" or "You are amazing just the way you are!"  My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

Are you as touched as I am? The thought that a simple note can reach a person's heart just makes me smile. Now, are you wanting to participate as much as I am?

Send your own Operation Beautiful Note to Caitlin at, and it will be posted on the site. If you have a blog, be sure to include a link!  It takes about three weeks for a photograph to show up on the site, so be patient! :)

Write a motivating note on a post it and put it up in a public place– such as on a bathroom mirror, in the gym locker room, or even on a random car’s windshield.  If you want, you can write the web address on the bottom so other women can find the site!
