What’s inside makes you beautiful | free print

I am Brave and Beautiful – a beauty movement that is sweeping the globe. Colbie Caillat started it with her recent song and video called TRY. My blogging friend Megan of Brassy Apple wanted to push this movement along and invited women from all over to share what they looked like without make up and I joined in!! Colbie’s song says, “Take your make up off. Let your hair down… Look into the mirror at yourself, Do you like you? Cause I like you… “

Megan and Cobi Peace From 6 Pieces have been the team behind this whole project. Their worldwide vision included creating their own video inspired by the song TRY. The talent of Robbins Creative made it possible for them to pull it off. You have to click play and see the beauty and bravery displayed and you might even recognize a few faces in there.

Me along with 101+ other blogging women from different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, ages, shapes and sizes have decided to be Brave and Beautiful! You can join in this movement too by sharing what you look like without makeup on. You don’t need a blog either! Just tag your photo with #IamBraveAndBeautiful on Instgram and search the hashtag to see who else has joined in. ALSO, if you tag it with a second hashtag – #ColbieTRY we just might be able to get Colbie Caillat’s attention since she was the inspiration behind it all!

Are you brave and beautiful? We are, here we go!

On a typical day…

Women are BRAVE and BEAUTIFUL!

Without makeup…right after we woke up…

Women are BRAVE and BEAUTIFUL!

Do we still think we’re beautiful?  YES.  Because this week we neglected our blog and social media for our friend who is hurting.  Because we spent quality time with kids instead of keeping the phone in our hand.  Because we had late night talks with our hubby’s instead of going to bed.  Because we invested more time into our families, as we should be.

And sadly, we shouldn’t have had to do this when tragedy strikes. Our friend has four beautiful little girls.  They were packing up to move to Utah when the trailer gate fell on their sweet 7 year old and killed her.  You can image the horror and how long the following week for them has to be as they were funeral planning instead of starting a new chapter of their life together. 

How were we good friends in this situation?  First we prayed.  A lot.  And asked others to do so.  Then we asked how we can help.  We ordered dolls for the surviving sisters to distract them and also to have a reminder of their sis London, there was an L embroidered across the dolly’s heart.  Kristi took on the video for the viewing, with an 18 hour notice.  She put her heart into that video, ignoring duties that could be put off, and duties that shouldn’t be put off.  She still had to prep speaking for an adoption conference on Saturday and teach the womens lesson at church on Sunday.  

Service makes you beautiful.  Giving time to others makes you beautiful.  Being kind makes you beautiful.  Being caring makes you beautiful.  Asking how you can help makes you beautiful.  Acting on that help makes you more beautiful.  Being a friend makes you beautiful.  Who are are inside makes you beautiful.  Makeup helps the outer appearance but we teach our daughters that what is inside is more important.  

Your personality makes you BEAUTIFUL!

Don’t you agree?  

Below are more brave and beautiful women bearing more than their natural beauty. They each have a little bit of their heart to share with you. Some get very personal. Some share stories. For some this was very hard to do yet they gathered their courage and did it anyway. We hope as you click around (and YES pin these different posts!) you will feel the importance of it, the empowering effect it has and that it encourages you in some way.

  • Ashlee - it’s so easy to go through life and get caught up in the daily grind, it’s sad that it often takes a tragedy so remember what’s truly important and let go of the busy stuff that gets in the way.

The times I’ve been the most satisfied with what I’ve accomplished are often when I’m serving and helping others.ReplyCancel
