Beauty is Not How Skinny You Can Be.

Not sure if it’s because of my history, my emotional state or the fact that I’m the biggest sap in the world but this video that MamaV posted on WeAreTheRealDeal got to me. I had a tear. Understatement… I was bawling at my desk…

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    OMG, I LOVED that video! An excellent message! I am showing it to my girls when they get home from school!

    I LOVE this video. Thank you so much for posting it. I’m going to post it on my blog tomorrow-it’s so inspirational.

    This is a video from my good friend Mugglesam. Please go visit her channel on Youtube!!! She is a wonderful storyteller and has lots of videos with a nice message, see ‘be kind’ and others… Her daughters Sophia and Bella are so smart and they have huge hearts…

    Love the video because this was just what I needed right now. But the tears only started coming with the last sentence “not someone else’s”, before it was rather a smile-jerker because this little girl is so adorable and positive, and she makes it simple again by wrapping all the adult complicated thoughts we have in that simple message.

    Hi Roni!
    I’m so glad I stopped by your blog today…I teach at an all girls school and I literally put it in my plans to show this short video to my classes… I teach Spanish! It’s so important though!

    Thanks and hope to see you at the RN holiday party again this year! :)

    Bloody Hell! That video really sends a message, thanks for posting it. I must admit I got a bit of a lump in my throat towards the end.
    We all know that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others and we need to love ourselves for who we are but we just don’t seem to believe it. Then you hear it from a little kid and think, “Yeah, she’s right!”
    Think I’ll be watching that clip a few times over :)
