“Beautiful is a great word, so why not see what’s on the other side of that?”

Dove launched a campaign called #ChooseBeautiful and as always, I am very touched by it.
It’s not the first time Dove is trying to talk about important matters and I do believe this one is one of them.
In this video, women from all over the world had to choose between walking into a door with an “average” sign and a “beautiful” sign. They were basically asked to show everybody how they felt about themselves and some reactions are astonishing.

“Am I choosing because what’s constantly bombarded at me? What I am being told? That I should except? Or am I choosing because that’s what I really believe?”

Why do we think we are average instead of beautiful? Is it because of all the skinny ladies we see in the magazines and we do believe that that’s the standard now? We need to be able to see beyond that. Because we are beautiful no matter what. We are amazing women and we should be able to consider ourselves as such.

What would you choose?
