I was tagged by Katherine at to do a post about Operation Beautiful. Operation Beautiful is a campaign about “transforming the way you see yourself one post-it note at a time”.

Here are the rules of today’s post!
1. Smile!
I always smile! There is always something worth smiling about.

2. Write 3 things you like about your looks.
This feels a little silly to talk vainly about “my looks”. But in the spirit of operation beautiful, here we go:
1.) My hair when it’s blow dried. I usually wear my hair up, but I do like how it looks when I take the time to blow it straight.
2.) My triceps when they’re toned. It’s one of the easiest muscles to see results in, and when I work at them a little bit, they give me instant gratification that lifting weights is worth it.
3.) My smile. I come from a family of dentists, and we take pride in teeth. A few of my teeth have moved since I had braces, and someday I’d like to correct it, but I still love it, even with its imperfections.

3. Write 3 things you appreciate about your personality.
1.) My eagerness to make friends. I sometimes feel awkward in groups, and worry in my head that I’m saying something dumb, but I still have confidence to go out there and meet new friends. The hard part is deciding to do it.
2.) My thick skin. For the most part, I’m able to brush things off, and take life with a grain of salt.
3.) My Boston accent. It fades a little since I live in California now, but when I get excited, passionate or mad about something, it comes out and I love it. 🙂 It’s a piece of who I am!

4. Write about something you find beautiful in other people (looks, personality – whatever)
I love when you see people recognize their passion, grab hold of their dreams and set off to achieve them. It’s inspiring to see other people succeed. I am also seeing the beauty of watching my friends become parents lately. If that’s not inspiring, I don’t know what is!

5. Award as many other people as you like and let them know!
I’m tagging Erica and Sarah! Take it away!
