Real Beauty

If you’re on facebook, chances are you’ve seen this video created by Dove. I saw it today and LOVED it. I just had to share it here.

I’m turning 30 in eight days, my skin is a hot mess right now (it’s going through a major dry spell), and I’ve been feeling a little low. This video lifted me up some today. Not because I needed to feel beautiful (believe me when I say I’m way beyond that at this point!), but because it reminded me to trust that my body is working hard for me, doing what it needs to do to heal. And that is beautiful.

Ladies, let’s be kinder to ourselves, okay?
