You are more beautiful than you think

I'm not one to share every video I come across on Facebook or even find much enjoyment in all the "viral" videos my dear husband likes to show me, but today I came across a video that really spoke to me.  Although it's essentially a cheesy Dove commercial, Real Beauty, has an amazing message.

As I mentioned in my "Eczema" post several weeks ago, I have been struggling with trying to heal my out-of-control eczema.  Things have taken a turn for the worse recently, and it's been quite debilitating and frustrating.  However, seeing this video today reminded me to stay strong and tell myself, "You are more beautiful than you think [and feel]".

On a larger scale, it was a good reminder to instill a positive self-image in my three children.  How one accomplishes that, I have no idea, but I have to believe it starts simply with love.  Love your little ones for the individuals they are, and express love in every little thing you do.
