Operation Beautiful

Written By

“I CHOOSE to be positive.” This is a phrase that we do not hear enough in our world. You know how when someone says, “I love your hair today”, or “You are absolutely wonderful”, you feel absolutely amazing inside? Why don’t we say these simple phrases everyday? Why don’t we make someone’s day, everyday? The goal of Operation Beautiful is to end negative self talk or “fat talk”. Negative self-talk inflicts pain; emotionally, spiritually and physically. Simple acts of kindness, as simple as leaving a tiny post-it note, containing the words, “You. Are. Beautiful,” could change not just someone’s day, but life dramatically. You never know whose life you will touch, whether it is just a stranger or someone who is truly suffering. 

On Thursday, October 24th, from 5:00pm-8:00pm, Operation Beautiful will take place at UNH. This is one of the many events that will take place during Fat Talk Free week, courtesy of UNH Health Services. The goal of this event is to influence Wildcats to inspire and help each other. If you attend this event, you will receive post-its that you are urged to post around campus; whether it be at the gym, in the bathroom, the library, the dining halls, ANYWHERE! Anywhere that it will be visible. Write inspiring and inspirational messages on them so that you can spread positivity on our campus and help end negative body images. Help EVERY student, feel beautiful. It is as simple as a pen and a post-it.

What a great idea! I think this is an awesome way to spread positive feelings and good body image. Random acts of kindness are in my opinion the best form of kindness. Go Wildcats for spreading such a great message!
