I wanted to be a little more creative this week. So instead of just buying Starbucks gift cards and leaving them at the till I decided to have some fun ;P
I wrote a little message saying “You ARE loved” or “You ARE Beautiful” with the gift cards, and hid them in women’s weight loss and dieting books
The reason was because I feel like women especially are barraged with the message that they aren’t good enough.
That they need to be more beautiful…
That they need to be skinnier…
Its indirectly and directly shown so many times on tv, magazines, everywhere..
And what really gets me is how they “create this void of fulfilment” by the media and then COINCIDENTALLY have 1000′s of diet plan books, “get thin” magazines, every single facial product you could imagine, and thousands of other “solutions” to this void..
Think about it.
They’re CREATING a problem –> making a women feel poor about herself, so they can now sell her a “solution” to make massive amounts of money…
So I decided to do something about it
Because I hate the idea that so many women are being taken advantage of like that.
So I bought 15 5$ gift certificates, wrote an encouraging messaging about being loved and being beautiful, put them in dieting and weight loss books and KICKED THAT NEGATIVITY IN THE FACE aha.
So tell me what you did this monday for *Random Kindness Mondays*!
