Operation Beautiful

in All Posts

The response to Operation Beautiful has been so positive that I have created a new blog just for the mission. Go to http://www.operationbeautiful.com/ to read the latest notes!

One of my biggest personal crusades is ending Fat Talk. If my little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic fat talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I want to reach as many people as possible with my End the Fat Talk message. If you’ve never read my Fat Talk page, check it out here.

Recently, I stumbled upon the Gives Me Hope website, and I was inspired to start my own random act of kindness crusade — Operation Beautiful.

Operation_Beautfuli

Operation Beautiful is simple: all you need is a pen and a piece of paper.

CIMG6166

I’ve begun leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. I scribble down whatever comes to mind — "You are beautiful!" or "You are amazing just the way you are!"

My goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

If you want to join the mission, send me an e-mail at seebriderun@gmail.com with a photograph of your Operation Beautiful note or a description of your experience, and I’ll post it on my blog and on this page! And feel free to spread the word on your blog as well!

Join the movement and send me a photo of your Operation Beautiful note at seebriderun@gmail.com. And go to www.OperationBeautiful.com to read the latest notes!

  • amy. June 17, 2009, 9:02 am

    Caitlin–you are such a beautiful soul! Your inspirational ideas keep getting better and better. Spreading positivity is a gift of yours!

    <3 amy

  • Anne June 17, 2009, 9:05 am

    i like this idea a lot!

    i suggest you start a flickr group to post these photos as well, for max exposure. that way folks can just tag photos operation beautiful and they can all be seen as a set of inspirational pics!

  • Jess June 17, 2009, 9:06 am

    This is such a great movement! Thanks for the great idea, I can't wait to do this!

  • katherine June 17, 2009, 9:11 am

    Such a touching idea! You can be sure New Yorkers will start seeing notes like these all over the city soon πŸ˜‰

  • Laura June 17, 2009, 9:13 am

    I love this idea! πŸ™‚

  • recipesforcreativity June 17, 2009, 9:18 am

    I LOVE that idea, and the next time I'm out and about in a public place, I'm going to leave my own note, which of course I'll tell you about!

  • Help Meghan Run June 17, 2009, 9:20 am

    Wonderful. πŸ™‚ I am SO going to start doing this.

  • Jewels June 17, 2009, 9:24 am

    i LOVE it πŸ™‚

  • runnerskitchen June 17, 2009, 9:24 am

    What a great idea! I get so sad and uncomfortable when I hear my female co-workers taking about how much weight they need to lose or how fat they feel after eating lunch. I want to tell them "Stop! You're perfect just the way you are".

  • Kayla June 17, 2009, 9:24 am

    This is such a great idea, I'm totally in and will be posting about it on my blog to help spread the word πŸ™‚

  • keva June 17, 2009, 9:27 am

    Caitlin, I think this is a fabulous idea! Fat talk truly does hurt us all, and I love how you're fighting it, one post it at a time. I may have to leave one at work.

  • Sam June 17, 2009, 9:32 am

    I'm guilty of fat talk and you're right, it's so destructive and there's completely no need for it. So i'm definitely up for 'Operation Beautiful'. I'll keep you posted…

  • Amanda June 17, 2009, 10:30 am

    AWESOME IDEA! You should leave the website on the bottom of the note so that people get where it's coming from and will pass it along if they love it!

  • Sara June 17, 2009, 10:32 am

    Oh my gosh, what a great idea! I would definately smile if I came across one of those notes. I'm going to start too!

  • Priyanka June 17, 2009, 10:42 am

    That is truly one of the best ideas! That would make my day for sure if I see it somewhere unexpectedly!

    I am in!

  • Matt June 17, 2009, 10:43 am

    Sounds like an awesome idea! I might even leave myself one too!

  • girlrunningaround June 17, 2009, 11:06 am

    What an awesome idea! I think I'll be doing this soon…

  • Stacey June 17, 2009, 11:23 am

    This reminded me of when my boyfriend drew a circle on the mirror in his bathroom, put an arrow pointing to it and wrote "See a beautiful face here"

    That made me smile! Sometimes I write notes to myself at home, but I should do it more often πŸ™‚

    Great idea πŸ™‚

  • Casey @ Double Scooped June 17, 2009, 11:32 am

    Awesome idea. I'm in!

  • Julie June 17, 2009, 11:39 am

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point June 17, 2009, 11:43 am

    eliza – oh sweet! im so glad there are other people doing this too!!

  • The Shabby Princess June 17, 2009, 11:53 am

    Oh my gosh. You have no idea how perfect the timing of this post is for me.

    Last night, after a little too much food indulgence I burst into tears, and wallowed in self pity, calling myself fat, feeling terrible and ugly. It was awful. It was also stupid! I'm happy to report that I feel much better today, but, I've still been battling that feeling of "fat/ugly" all morning and it's terrible–I know how ridiculous and how damaging it is–i KNOW that, but, it's a habit–albeit, a bad one, but, a habit!

    Anyways, thanks, this really hit home. πŸ™‚

  • leslie June 17, 2009, 12:00 pm

    this is beautiful. i am in awe!

    i'm heading out to buy some new gym pants, and i am so leaving a post-it in the dressing room!

  • Caitlin June 17, 2009, 12:04 pm

    such a great idea. When I lived in the dorms in college, my RA used to write messages like that on our mirrors!

    btw I love that last note!

  • Christy June 17, 2009, 12:09 pm

    What a sweet and inspiring quest! I think all women could use a little boost now and then. Why are we so hard on ourselves when we would NEVER be so cruel to our friends? Can't wait to start spreading the message!

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 17, 2009, 12:19 pm

    what an amazing idea!! I love it! I am going to do it too!

  • heyitstay June 17, 2009, 1:29 pm

    I was in a restroom on my college campus, and someone had written: "Remember that you are beautiful" on the toilet paper dispenser. It really makes me smile every time I see it πŸ˜€

  • Anne P June 17, 2009, 1:44 pm

  • Christina June 17, 2009, 2:44 pm

    That's a great idea and I see it's already catching on! I'm gunna keep a post-it on me for next time I'm somewhere public πŸ™‚

  • roseyrebecca June 18, 2009, 6:00 pm

    This is similar to something I did in high school when I was freaking out about passing my math class. I posted "You will Pass Math" stickers all over the place. It really kept me studying. This is such a great idea.

  • Kiersten June 18, 2009, 6:50 pm

    I cannot begin to express how wonderful I think this is! I am definitely taking part.

  • Anne Calista June 18, 2009, 7:53 pm

    This is amazing! I am a waitress and am sometimes tempted to write similar messages on checks for women who engage in fat talk while they're out to eat, which I think it so damaging, not to mention a waste of an enjoyable time! What a great idea. I'm glad I found your blog because I'm trying to start blogging about similar ideas… I will keep reading!!!

  • Whitney June 18, 2009, 8:23 pm

    what a great idea! I will be posting notes tomorrow. I will see if I can get a pic to send!

  • Jennifer June 19, 2009, 8:27 am

  • Anonymous June 19, 2009, 12:31 pm

    This is wonderful, thank you!
    It reminds me of something I read and copied down this week:

    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
    Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
    We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
    It is not just some of us; it is in everyone,
    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."

    By Marianne Williamson

    as written in the book "The Art of Possibility" Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander

  • J June 19, 2009, 12:43 pm

    I've made it my goal to put up at least 3 of these around my town everyday.
    Everyone should know how beautiful they are!

  • Anonymous June 19, 2009, 1:50 pm

    you should make this a group on facebook. that way word will spread faster and we can bring a little more hope into our world.

  • Lisa June 19, 2009, 3:33 pm

    I love this idea soooo much!

  • Katherine June 19, 2009, 9:02 pm

    Expect to see some floating around VA from now on! πŸ˜€

    I saw the growing number of stories like this on GMH and I was already planning to start it up in my area. Good to know there's a lot of us ready to make others feel wonderful too!

    I agree with the flickr group idea. Or at least a Facebook fanpage or something huge like that. I'd love to help run that with whoever. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the inspiring work!

  • Just a Girl June 20, 2009, 1:34 am

    What a great idea Caitlin. Fat talk is definitely something I indulge in quit often (about myself). I know it drives my hubby nuts. I don't know if it would be possible for me to stop it. It never hurts to try πŸ™‚

  • Alice June 23, 2009, 12:53 pm

    Spreading a smile like this is really cool. I'm gonna buy some post-its and go for it. :3

  • Frances June 23, 2009, 7:32 pm

    Caitlin, great idea – I'm going to put some post-its in my purse. To bad I didn't read this yesterday – I was in 3 airports today!
    I will also try to inspire my emotional support students by putting random notes in their restroom.
    Sometimes helping someone else feel better, helps you to also – Good Karma and all.
    Keep up the good work.

  • amy June 29, 2009, 11:35 pm

    you really inspired me…I find that is far too easy to be carried in the numbers on the scale and the yo-yo effect of severe dieting and then over-indulging on sweets has plagued me for years. your video reduced me to tears but also has made me arm myself with post-its and a pen in my bag. the time has come for women to take back their identity. thank you <3

  • Shannon July 28, 2009, 8:27 am

    This is an amazing idea, next time I go into town I'm fnna do it. : )

  • Courtney August 6, 2009, 9:26 pm

    I'm going to do this in every bathroom I pass on the first day of school. Since we have classes all over the building, there should be quite a few notes around the building. This is an AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL idea, Caitlin.

  • Rae October 8, 2009, 12:00 am

    I did this yesterday in my dorm. I stuck little messages saying “You’re Beautiful” to everyone’s doorknobs. I saw alot of people keep them and smile. I think I’m going to make it a weekly thing.

  • Katie October 16, 2009, 7:33 am

    I’m starting doing this today.
    I’ve already written things on a whole pad of sticky notes, and they’re going around my school TODAY. :] <3

  • Caitlin October 24, 2009, 9:58 pm

    • Vicki July 16, 2010, 7:41 pm

      Even if you’re a man, you don’t have to post it in a bathroom. Scribble something about how someone is beautiful and give it to some woman, any woman and walk away. That would make me so happy.

    I love the idea, and i would like to do it, the only problem is that im a male and I dont think itll work if i put up a “You’re beutiful” post-it note in the men’s bathroom

      Maybe you can leave other messages instead of your beautiful. πŸ™‚ Maybe an inspirational quote or something like that!

  • Ainsley Taylor February 20, 2010, 2:45 pm

    This is an amazing idea! I am going to put these all around my High School! :)) God Bless.

    Operation Beautiful has inspired me to share the word. I now leave sticky notes in the library books that I return that say “You are beautiful on the inside and out”

  • Brittany May 13, 2010, 3:40 pm

    I wonder if you’ve seen this? just thought I’d share it with you πŸ™‚

    Caitlin..I found your site off GivesMeHope.com
    I have never found anyone so amazing who’s so determined to give people hope..I am going to do what you are doing. Putting random notes up. It’s a wonderful idea (:

  • Vicki July 16, 2010, 7:37 pm

    I am very self-conscious and if I got one of these notes it would brighten my day. I want to make someother girl feel like that. Count me in! <3

  • Ashley July 20, 2010, 1:33 pm

    You are beautiful.

    I love this idea and hope to start spreading these messages in the high school that I work in. I work with so many girls that have poor images of themselves. I can’t wait to start in September.
    Thanks for the wonderful idea.

    After 56 years of hating my body, going on my first diet at the age of 12, and feeling guilty because I ate when I was hungry, I think it is time to halt the negative talk. Your mission is a truly wonderful one, and it will change lives.

    Saw you this morning on The Today Show!! What an inspiration! I can’t wait to try this out in Evansville,IN. If nothing else, it makes me feel better about myself!!!

  • Christina August 5, 2010, 12:05 pm

    Just saw The Today Show and was moved by the positive, beautiful, and much needed inspiration that Caitlin is spreading. I admit it also brought tears to my eyes to think of all the years I have wasted being uncomfortable w/ myself , instead of celebrating all that is good! I’m still learning in my mid 30’s to be nice to myself – and Miss Caitlyn , you showed up on a good day to remind me. Count me in – I will also spread the word about your book! Thank you for your brightness!

  • Bethany August 29, 2010, 12:02 pm

    I do something similar to this and I absolutely love your idea!!! When I’m in the car by myself and I’m just driving down the road and see someone else driving alone, I wave and smile. People light up and smile back. Sometimes a smile from a stranger can change a life. I started doing this because one day I had an awful day but needed to go to the mall last minute. I was walking in the mall and a random girl i had never seen before gave me the cheesiest smile I had ever seen and then gave me a high five as she walked by.

  • Cat September 6, 2010, 9:26 pm

    I left my first two notes today, at a university restroom, one at the mirror and one in a stall. It gave me a big grin although I had a terrible day! I wanted to do this for a while (since I started reading sixbillionsecrets and gmh)and always forgot it. Not today πŸ™‚ I hope someone read it and grinned as well.

  • Ari October 8, 2010, 12:08 am

    I saw this AFTER what I did today. Before I returned my books about anorexia to the library, I put a sticky note in each one. They said “Smile, you’re beautiful!”
    I know only girls with anorexia really read those. After all, I did check them out.

  • Caelyn January 7, 2011, 3:22 pm

    Me, my sister, and my friend Anne are making a bunch of these, each with different sayings. Then we’re going to drive around town and put these in public restrooms and other places. You have inspired me so much and I want other people to feel how I do after reading this site; how beautiful you really areβ™₯

  • seborrheic dermatitis July 4, 2011, 10:54 pm

    I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
