Sharing the Smiles

So I know that a lot of you have felt inspired by this blog (or at least I hope you have), and you can also make others feel beautiful too. One thing that makes people feel good about themselves is when someone gives them a compliment, or when they smile. So on Monday, I'm going to try and give 10 compliments! Hopefully, I will also make them smile (: yay for inspiration!

Bathroom Mirror Notes!

So as you may know, the main part of Operation Beautiful is posting random inspirational notes in public places that say things like "Smile, you are beautiful!" or "Hey Beautiful! You look gorgeous today!"
Katelynn and I post a lot of notes on the bathroom mirrors at school.  I thought I'd post a few that I put up today:

I thought the note shaped like an A was pretty cool :) I was just going through my sticky note collection and I found those and got the idea for that one!

Inspired?  Post your own notes in public places!  You can put our URL on it, or you can put Operation Beautiful's [www.operationbeautiful.com].  Hopefully you can make other girls happy from these notes, just like we do :)

Inspiring Something of the Day!

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."- Matthew 5:16

You are beautiful. You can bring a light to the world that no one else can, its your job to show it. So go show the world what you can bring and shine your light!

Makeup Free Monday?

It seems like the girls on TV, in movies, or in magazines; are perfect. They aren't though. They cover up their inner beauty and their true selves with makeup. The video below is what a real model does before she goes to a photo shoot. So what if one day a week we didn't wear any makeup and showed everyone that we have real beauty? We don't need makeup because we are awesome and amazing in every way! I really hope you notice that the girl in the video was pretty before and after she had makeup on, and I'm sure that you are too.

A Little About Addie

Hey, I'm Addie!  I'm not very good at writing these "little bit about yourself" things, because I always feel so weird writing about myself!  I guess I'll just try my best here... Okay, well I love to do anything that lets me use my creativity... Playing guitar, doing crafts, cooking, writing (except about myself!).

I'm a super-happy person, and I look at the world with a "half-full" attitude.  A lot of people call me an optimist... I love to help other people, no matter how big or how small the problem may be.  All of those things are probably the reason I love the idea of Operation Beautiful so much!  I believe a lot of people are way more beautiful than they give themselves credit for, and need to stop the negative thoughts!  I hope with this site we can inspire others and help change the world :) So don't forget...

SMILE! You are beautiful!

A Little About Katelynn

Well what can I say, I ride horses, have a lot of great friends, just love all the simple things in life, and have a very low self esteem.
In middle school, I was bullied a lot. I was convinced that I wasn't pretty, wasn't good at anything, and didn't have any worth. I was almost embarrassed of myself and I wouldn't even want to talk to people because I thought is was my fault I got bullied and I should just avoid them. That's when I changed schools and I met Addie. She showed me a website called www.operationbeautiful.com. I was so excited! This website told me that I was worth something. I started putting up inspirational notes in the bathroom and I wanted to do more. So that's how this blog got started. Hope you like it!

A Little About Something Beautiful

Something Beautiful (short for You Are Something Beautiful) is inspired Operation Beautiful.  We set up this site in hopes of changing the way high school girls think about their looks... Because, the truth is, every girl is beautiful, but too many of them can't see it.  Even if others/themselves say they aren't, they really are.  Beauty is so much more than what's on the outside!  With this blog, we hope that we can help and inspire others to let them know that they are amazing, beautiful, and perfect, no matter what they/others say!

We hope you'll enjoy this blog!
