a post to women everywhere....[ten day challenge.]

the women's center at byu has a new campaign. 
recapturing beauty.
i am. beautiful.
support. connect. empower.

want to participate with me?
i'll be posting the challenges of everyday, and most likely some of my own experiences. 
here's the first challenge for tomorrow.

october 11 - day one

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure... We ask ourselves: ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”
-as quoted by Nelson Mandela

the challenge:
Today, start your journal for the challenge. Write for at least ten minutes and express gratitude for all the things your body allows you to do. Continue to write for at least 10 minutes each day though the challenge.

Refrain from weighing yourself today. In fact, refrain from weighing yourself during the 10 days of the challenge.

Recording your thoughts helps you process your feelings. You will be surprised what surfaces when you give time and voice to your thoughts.When we focus on weight, the number never seems to be the right one. We don’t have to subject ourselves to that grief--weight is not always an accurate measure of health or body fat, and we would do well to eliminate the obsession of weighing ourselves altogether.
