Thanks for making the time for reading, and commenting on my blog, Loving Yourself: How Do You See Yourself?

Thanks for being so forthright in your comments. We all have inner beauty as well as outer beauty but we have been conditioned to be so critical of ourselves most of the time. Can you imagine if the majority of the advertising we saw was more positive like this? I wouldn't be typing these words.

It is truly refreshing to see a major corporation that women know so well sending out consecutive positive messages, and developing ad campaigns to tell women they are beautiful, and to help them think more positively about
themselves. I loved some of the selfies, and I liked the videos.
