As expected, I recieved overwhelming interest in my Operation Beautiful project. Thus, the showcase will roll out 15 lovely ladies each Monday until I stop receiving entries…hopefully never 🙂
This project is to make you think, ponder, appreciate the simple things about yourself, that add up and make you truly beautiful. The smaller qualities that you adore about yourself, like your lips or eyes, that make you feel pretty on the worst of days.
This project is about your talents, your secret hidden abilities, your amazing personalities. Those quirks which make you, uniquely you. And, I sincerely hope that after you read through the finished product to discover how these other ladies feel about themselves, you can spend the rest of the day, sincerely feeling great about yourself.
If you feel vulnerable, insecure, or hesitant to send in an entry, don’t be! We’re in this together. It will hopefully make you realize a few things about yourself. This will by far be one of my favorite posts I’ll ever do on this blog, and I won’t even write it, you guys will. Take it away ladies!
I feel most beautiful when…When my hair is down, a little messy, in a tank and sweats, just about to get ready for bed.
My favorite physical feature is my…eyes.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…my sense of humor.
I’m happiest when… I’m out with my husband, doing something new and fun, and finding that we still have so much to talk about.
I feel most beautiful when…I dress up, put makeup on and have a nice tan. I love wearing eye makeup to show off my eyes and since I lost weight I am more comfortable to wear nice clothes.
My favorite physical feature is my… eyes, they are green and almond shaped. My eyes are truly the windows to my soul, they say everything when you look at me.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… I always try to make things right with people when I have wronged them or we have had a fight. I feel guilty when I did wrong and even when I didn’t do anything wrong, so I try hard to make things right. I hate fighting and confrontations, I would rather there be peace.
I’m happiest when… things are peaceful and calm in my life. It’s just that simple.
I feel most beautiful when…I catch my husband staring at me with a smile on his face. He is the only one that has made me feel beautiful without any effort 😉
My favorite physical feature is my… eyes. I have blue/green eyes and I love when the light hits them just right and it’s captured in a picture hahaha
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… my sense of loyalty. To me, there’s nothing more important than keeping promises, friendships, relationships, etc.
I’m happiest when… I see my daughter smile at me. I’ve never felt happier in my life til she smiled at me after just hearing my voice.
I feel most beautiful when…I have a really great outfit on. There is just something about having something on my body, not to please other people, but just myself.
My favorite physical feature is my… My smile. There is so much that can be said about a smile, and I like to make other people happy with it. Those braces sure did come in handy.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… My determination. If I set my mind to something, it will be accomplished. Not just accomplished, but accomplished to the best of my ability.
I’m happiest when… I am in the presence or arms of my man. Whether we’re just in the same room or actually conversing, I just like being around him! It’s the little things, you know?
I feel most beautiful when…I get my hair done. A fresh wash, cut, and color? Nothing like that feeling.
My favorite physical feature is my… My smile. I kind of like my teeth. Is that strange? I’m not sure, but it’s the one thing I don’t find a way to judge about myself.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…my sense of humor.
I’m happiest when… I am with my husband, a big glass of wine, and not a care in the world.
I feel most beautiful when…My body feels healthy, and clean. When my hair is behaving itself. When I’m doing something I love with the people I love.
My favorite physical feature is my… Hair. It’s kinda wavy, kinda curly, and very unruly.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… I’m a kid-magent, I love kids, they love me. It works out fine.
I’m happiest when… I’m writing a new song, reading a book, listening to music, or writing stories.
I feel most beautiful when…I’ve had a full pampering session including candlelit bubble bath, my hair isn’t lying flat against my head, I’ve got my nicest outfit on and my make up’s looking natural
My favorite physical feature is my… Freckles – I used to hate them but as time goes on you realize they’re quite cute (and youthful!)
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… I’m a good listener (although most people probably say that don’t they? I am though, honest)…
I’m happiest when… I’m laughing and with my loved ones.
I feel most beautiful when…I am all dressed up for a special ocassion, preferably wearing a new dress and some high heels! I love feeling like I look like a million bucks once in a while 🙂
My favorite physical feature is my..I have a tie here. I love my blue eyes, but lately I have been embracing my height. I barely pass 5 feet, and I always saw that as a disadvantage; something that kept me from being beautiful. I now see how unique it makes me, and, bonus, I can wear heels everywhere (but don’t) and I am learning that guys like short girls.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is…My brain! I love being a smart girl (and the occasional smart ass). I like to surprise people – they don’t expect this much smarts and sass from a little blonde!
I’m happiest when…I am in the front row of a tiny venue, watching my favorite band, holding a cocktail, surrounded by my best friends.
I feel most beautiful when…I’m smiling and wearing something bright and colorful. It’s those bright colors, they get me every time! If the very colors I’m wearing are beautiful, i can’t help but be beautiful too!
My favorite physical feature is my… lips. Maybe it’s funny to like my lips best but I do, because they are naturally full and I love wearing bright lipsticks to accentuate them.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… my ability to learn easily. Things have always clicked for me when it came to school, and even learning other skills such as sewing come easily to me. I consider this such a blessing and never want to take it for granted, but hope to always use the fact that I learn easily to help others who struggle a little more.
I’m happiest when… I’m with my husband and family, playing board games or card games and just laughing, bringing up old, worn-out stories of adventures and mishaps, and telling them all over again so that they sound like new!
I feel most beautiful when…“I remember that I am the Beloved child of God. Knowing this Truth throughout the day is what keeps me going. There is so much in this world during the week that can drag me down, so clinging to the reality that I am defined only by God is vital for me to breath! I also feel most beautiful when I just have a tad bit of make up on and my hair is looking good!”
My favorite physical feature is my…cheek bones and my hair.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… I nurture relationships well and I am tender toward others.
I’m happiest when… I feel physically well.
I feel most beautiful when…“I’m happy. Happiness is something that I don’t have much of. Being an extremely shy, anxious and quiet person my whole life has made me live my last 19 years sort of alone. When I am able to be myself and confident with people, I am happy. And that makes me feel my most beautiful.
My favorite physical feature is my… First, my hair. I was blessed with very thick naturally wavy hair. I get the most compliments on it and it truly is lovely to have. Second, my eyes. I never really thought much about them until a year or so ago when my friend commented on a picture saying that I had huge eyes and they were pretty “pony eyes”. And ever since I’ve started to love them..
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… My love for other people. Something that never fails to make me feel happy is when I am making other people happy. Whether sending them a nice message, buying a random gift, making them a meal or just taking time to act like “hey I care about you.” How much I care is something I would never change.
I’m happiest when… I’m calm and know that the Lord is with me through whatever. When I’m around other people. When a day goes just how I need it. When I feel beautiful and loved.
I feel most beautiful when…my husband tells me so…
My favorite physical feature is my… my strong will and careful heart.. it makes me who i am today..
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… my eyes
I’m happiest when… i have a pen in my hand and a poem in my heart…
I feel most beautiful when… I’m in comfortable, yet somewhat dressy clothing. Lighter, looser dresses are probably my favorite articles of clothing. They accentuate the good parts without making me feel like my flaws are being focused on.
My favorite physical feature is my… eyes. I love being able to make them look different with glasses or contacts and different kinds of make-up.
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… My laid-back, go-with-the-flow attitude. It’s allowed me to experience life without needing to throw a fit when things don’t go right. I’ve had a lot of negative experiences in life that were out of my control and this personality trait helped me move forward without letting it get me down.
I’m happiest when… I’m surrounded by those I love and feel comfortable around. I’m rather shy in person so when I’m around the people I cherish, my personality shines through and I don’t feel the need to apologize for my perceived flaws (physical and non.)
I feel most beautiful when… …my husband holds me close, and whispers that he’s so glad he’s chosen ME!
My favorite physical feature is my… …eyes. I love that they change hue with my mood, or what I wear!
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… …that’s a hard one. I guess I love that I have a heart to really connect with people. There are so few people willing to pursue deep connection left in the world, yet I think, deep down, so many of us are yearning for it! I’m grateful that I was given that passion to share, and a small platform (my blog) from which to share it.
I’m happiest when… …well, my primary love languages are “quality time” and “words of affirmation”. So I’m happiest when I’m spending time with the people I love most in the world… (my husband and best friend primarily), and feel the most content when I receive affirmation from people on a job well done, or simply affirming their love for me (see answer two questions above)!
I feel most beautiful when… I am dancing!
My favorite physical feature is my… legs!
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… my ability to see the silver lining!
I’m happiest when I am playing outside with my son!
I feel most beautiful when… My hair is freshly straightened and my make up is done….That half hour after getting ready I feel gorgeous. I also feel the most beautiful when I catch my husband staring at me. 🙂 Such a great feeling.
My favorite physical feature is my… Eyes and my hair. I have been really lucky to keep my thick long hair. And I love my eyes because they are not hard to match make up or clothes to. 🙂
Something non-physical that I love about myself is… My mind. I love being book smart. I think it sets me apart from a lot of girls these days. I am not confident in person but on paper it is a completely different story. I love that I can express myself through the written word.
I’m happiest when It is quiet in the house and I am sitting in peace. I love solitude. Also, when I have a great cup of coffee next to me while I browse the web. Makes me ridiculously happy. 🙂
