This morning I woke up to find an email from my mom, which said nothing but “This is worth watching…” followed by a video of a news woman. I sat down in my personal sanctuary on our balcony with my iPad and my breakfast, then hit play. From the moment this women started speaking, I was mesmerized. She is strong, beautiful, intelligent, confident, and wise. A role model, indeed, despite the cruel words emailed to her by a bullying viewer.
This morning, I encourage you to take five minutes to watch and fall in love with this woman, who clearly understands that her worth is far more than the number on the scale:
So powerful, right? After watching it, all I could think was, YOU GO GIRL! In honor of national bullying prevention month, let’s spread the word about her story and choose to be uplifting and encouraging of those around us rather than judgmental and intolerant.
What’s been your experience with bullying?
P.S. Speaking of strong, wise, beautiful women…today is my dear friend Karen’s birthday! Read here about all of the reasons why she is a true beauty who I am so thankful to call a friend.
