Only 2% of women think that they are beautiful. This statistic has brought tears to my eyes on many occasions. After seeing a blog post from this amazing Goddess named Carly Morgan Gross about mirrors, I was inspired to remove all the mirrors from my apartment with the exception of the bathroom mirror. I was looking into them WAY too often, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that. Every time I walked into the bedroom or loft area I looked in the mirror and found something wrong with myself, whether it was my hair, crooked teeth or my asymmetrical nose, I always found something to criticize. Because I love mirrors from a design perspective I wanted to come up with a creative way to be able to keep mirrors around, but not feel tempted to look at myself every few hours. You Are Beautiful Project is about reminding ourselves that true beauty comes from the inside and has nothing to do with our outer reflection. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these mirrors will go to the Hance Family Foundation’s Beautiful Me Program. Their basic lesson plans are designed to teach girls of all ages how to think positively and with assurance about their bodies, their skills, and their relationships with others. Beautiful Me has already reached over 10,000 young girls, providing instruction and hands-on activities that focus on the wonderful attributes that make each girl special–her strengths, talents, personality, and individuality. They teach the girls that being comfortable with who they are makes them a better sister, daughter, and friend. The instructors also guide the conversations to include important friendship-building skills and key concepts necessary for building and protecting the girls’ individual gifts.
