Life Changes—Real Beauty

Did you enjoy your weekend?  Mine was great…sold a few turkeys, taught a design class, and made these cookies that even my pickiest eaters liked.  Success!

I also found this powerful video clip that reminded me of something that I would like to change…the perception of female beauty.  I wrote about this topic a few months ago, and I continue to be inspired by women who are actively working to make a change in this arena, women like Karen Walrond and Courtney Kendrick.  As for me, I've definitely come a long way in recognizing my own beauty, but I think it will be something I continue to struggle with indefinitely.

This change in perception is especially important to me because of my four daughters who I hope will not struggle as I have to recognize real beauty.  The first step for them, and for all of us in redefining beauty is to recognize that there is a problem.  This short video will help get us started…
