It’s not news that women today face a LOT of pressure from the media to look a certain way. Way too many girls grow up feeling inadequate, not pretty enough and plain ole’ BAD about themselves.

operationbeautiful.com is a website (and a growing movement, I might add) that is devoted to breaking down the unattainable (and false) ideal of what “beautiful” means.
She began by leaving the notes on mirrors in public washrooms and at the grocery store. She created operationbeautiful.com to share her mission and encourage others to get on board.
It’s so simple- all you need is pen and a piece of paper.
So, why not consider leaving a note somewhere today. You never know who will find it or who NEEDS to be reminded how beautiful they really are. Write operationbeautiful.com on the bottom of your note and check the website later to see if the person who finds it posts a picture of your note.
