Words. They’re beautiful, haunting, powerful things. Just a few letters strung together, yet they can make a huge impact and difference to our lives. They can take away our confidence, our strength in a small sentence, or they can shine a small shimmer of hope into our day. Words stick in our mind; they get us what we want. We remember great speeches by the majesty of the words spoken, the way those words made us think, the way they made us feel.
But words can be used against us. They can be twisted to make us feel unneeded, unwanted. They can make our confidence plummet and make us feel negative towards ourselves and others.
Operation Beautiful is a website set up with a mission. A mission to bring words to people to make them feel better; to bring confidence and a smile to people’s face. It is there to provide nice words to make someones day. It’s there to remind you that no matter what you look like, you are absolutely beautiful.
It’s a simple plan, and anyone can join the operation. All you have to do is write a short, sweet sentence on a post-it note and put it somewhere for all to see. It could be anything from, “You are Beautiful.” to “Smile-you look great”. The aim is to make someone smile and feel good about themselves, even for a tiny second.
The website is http://operationbeautiful.com and anyone can join. Joining is free, and you can upload photos of your favourite post-its. Even if you don’t want to join, I would recommend visiting the website, and see how beautiful life can be. And remember, you’re absolutely beautiful. Yes, you!
Words can be hurtful, dangerous weapons. But sometimes they can be used to create something beautiful.
