You ARE Beautiful!

I want to share this idea with you.  Something that will slowly help to heal me.  I have post partum depression and lately everyday has been a struggle.  But my brother shared this sticker with me along with its message. I felt so strongly about it because the truth is I don't think I am beautiful but I am determined to believe it, even if I have to stick this sticker on nearly every available surface.  You can get them online at  

So if you don't bother to go to the website I wanted to "copy and paste" the story.

You Are Beautiful is a simple, powerful statement aspiring to create moments of positive self realization. The intention behind the message is to be received as a simple act of kindness, an innovative approach to a fundamental concept.

The vision of the You Are Beautiful campaign is to focus on the utmost truth that unites us as a people:  each individual is intriguing, complex and beautiful. With this realization, we are impelled to pass it along. Not following the status quo or daily norm, the objective is to look for a new manner to engage one another on a deep meaningful level, creating a new methodology of unified social consciousness.

The You Are Beautiful message has spread throughout the world, dispersing hundreds of thousands of stickers, and generating countless community based projects to beautify neighborhoods in cities globally. The project and the message are completely open. Anyone can participate, engage, and act. Empowering each of us, to choose optimism with clarity, and remind ourselves, that you are beautiful.
 So this is how it works...  It's guerrilla movement, so donate any amount (ie. 10 cents each so 20$ for 200 stickers) and stick them everywhere. Give them away, put them on your cell phone, on your mirrors, in public washroom mirrors, any place people might read it!    Think of it like sowing seeds.  A way to help heal other people. 


  1. Thanks for sharing! And you are beautiful: mind, body and spirit. I am happy you we have connected in the last years.

  2. Natalie, you have great bone structure. Glad to see you posting, we miss you!

  3. Natalie, I was so happy to see that you have come back to your blog. I wanted to tell you that I think you are beautiful... your mind and creativity with your cooking (I am a lousy cook - you make it seem so easy!) Your strength in your convictions... you have inspired me to try new things - I bought Tosca's book and have been eating "cleaner" - I have a long way to go, but you have inspired me along the road. Thank-you for all of these things that make you a beautiful soul. I wish you happiness and comfort as you travel along on your journey, with all of the bumps that it will bring you. You deserve much happiness.

  4. Glad to see that you are back! Email if you need anything!

  5. That's wonderful - and so true, we are all beautiful and need to realize it! I'm sorry you're struggling lately but hoping you're feeling better very soon. Hugs!
