We love what Caitlin Boyle has done with Operation Beautiful and wanted to celebrate 1 week of telling ourselves we are beautiful by sharing some information about her work. We highly recommend ordering the book!
I’m Caitlin, and I’m the editor of Operation Beautiful. The mission of Operation Beautiful is to post anonymous notes in public places for other women to find. The point is that WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL. You are enough… just the way you are!
The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.” I hope to help people 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.
Operation Beautiful is simple: all you need is a pen and a piece of paper. If you want to join the mission, send me an e-mail at OperationBeautiful@gmail.com with a photograph of your Operation Beautiful note or a description of your experience, and I’ll post it on the Operation Beautiful site for thousands of others to read and enjoy!
Take the next step in the Beauty Message Challenge and start telling other people “You Are Beautiful.”
