Post-It Phrase of the Day: “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
Georgie wrote, “As a mother and a career woman, the little things like a compliment or just a few kind words from your partner is what just motivates you to do better. Unfortunately, that has become absent for a while and it eats away bits and bits of my self esteem… You become conscious of the little love handles from after having your 1st child, the little grey streaks becomes annoying right in the front of your head. I am ready to love myself again for who I am because no one but me can make me happy. Its amazing how some of us seek approval from our partners so desperately, forgetting that we are actually wonderfully and fearfully made. I am beautiful and love me for me.”
Abigail wrote, “This photo was taken in LA, California in 2011– finding beauty in the unexpected.”
Chelsea wrote, “I joined Operation Beautiful yesterday as my 17th day of my 29 day giving challenge. The full story of my Operation Beautiful gift is posted on the 29gifts.org website, but I wanted to share the pictures that I took. Since I participated in my operation as a part of my 29 day giving challenge I decided that I wanted to distribute 29 beautiful post-its in one day.”
Raechelle wrote, “Found this at a bathroom at work. I work at a hospital and so thankful for whoever put this on the mirror. I think hospitals can be so dreary. Its hard to see anything beautiful when there’s so much sickness and pain going around you. There’s stress everywhere. Its easy to forget that anything good is going on. Being reminded that you’re beautiful when you least expect it, or when you need it the most…there’s a certain little miracle about it.”
Sapphire wrote, “I was having a rotten day and reading Between Mom and Jo, when I turned the page and found this note. It surprised me and made me really happy.”
