    Fantastic! I’d love to find notes like these around the gym!

  • Sophie July 19, 2011, 1:16 pm

    Aww I would love to find notes like those at the pool!
    Hope you had a good swimming session 🙂

  • Leanne (Bride to Mrs,) July 19, 2011, 1:16 pm

    I hope someone finds that who really needs it 🙂

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 19, 2011, 1:30 pm

    I wish there were those all over my pool…..maybe I should do something about that. EH? 😉

    Hope you had a great swim!!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 19, 2011, 1:44 pm

    great notes, I’m still waiting for the day I see a note somewhere 🙂

  • Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories July 19, 2011, 1:46 pm

    Brought a smile to my face, and I’m sure it will to whomever sees it as well.

    Do you try to write something different every time or stick with the tried and true?

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:27 pm

      Usually something different. 🙂 I mix it up.

  • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans July 19, 2011, 1:46 pm

    I bet this made someone’s day!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 19, 2011, 1:47 pm

    Nice job, Caitlin! I haven’t seen many around the places I frequent lately (I used to see them on campus occasionally when I was still in school) .. but maybe that means I need to get cracking and make some myself!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 19, 2011, 1:49 pm

    You deserve love + respect — love this one and it goes to everyone!

  • Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy July 19, 2011, 1:52 pm

    I would love to find those notes! Great job!

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life July 19, 2011, 1:52 pm

    Love it!!!!!

  • courtney (pancakes and postcards) July 19, 2011, 2:10 pm

    Wonderful. I’m still waiting to find a note somewhere 🙂

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 19, 2011, 2:10 pm

    I love the ‘you deserve love and respect’ note!

  • Ellie@fitforthesoul July 19, 2011, 2:13 pm

    Amen! True beauty starts from within! Loved that. 😀

  • Heather R July 19, 2011, 2:27 pm

    Great post. I was wondering what you thought of “that wife”‘s post today, and I thought your comment was great. I read both of your blogs everyday.

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:26 pm

      Thanks for reading, Heather 🙂 I appreciate it a lot!

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) July 19, 2011, 2:51 pm

    Love it! This is something that I needed to see today. Thank you!

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) July 19, 2011, 2:55 pm

    A pool is such a great place for those messages. When I was training for the triathlon at the pool, I overheard a lot of body trash talk in the change rooms…often by teen girls. I hope it helps someone in need!

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness July 19, 2011, 2:57 pm

    I love these 🙂 such a wonderful set of messages to leave in a very appropriate place…so inspiring and upliftingand full of love! <3 xyx

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 19, 2011, 3:04 pm

    these notes rock.

    they change people’s day. and life.

    truly, the small things DO matter 🙂

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 19, 2011, 3:10 pm

    The pool is the perfect place for this – exactly where people need a boost of confidence!

  • Krystina (Organically Me) July 19, 2011, 3:20 pm


  • Katherine July 19, 2011, 3:21 pm

    I love this 🙂

  • Savannah(Sweet and Savvy) July 19, 2011, 3:46 pm

    I love it!!

  • linz July 19, 2011, 3:49 pm

    Love this! If there’s anywhere I need a reminder like this, its at the pool.

  • Tracy July 19, 2011, 4:00 pm

    You need to get some sticky-notes with “operationbeautiful.com” imprinted on the bottom!

    operationbeaunful.com is going to get some traffic today.

    Question: Do the locals know who you are? Not your friends, but people you see often, but maybe don’t know their names (at the pool for instance)? Have you become known as That Sticky Note Lady? Just curious 🙂

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:26 pm

      Hahah naw I am very very sneaky about it and don’t do it in front of people!

  • Jen July 19, 2011, 4:10 pm

    You’re so awesome! I would love to step into a bathroom stall and see those sticky notes!

  • yolie @ practising wellness July 19, 2011, 4:20 pm

    just curious…do you carry post-its and marker pens in your purse? 🙂 xyx

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:25 pm

      Of course! I have a whole kit.

      • Yolie @ Practising Wellness July 20, 2011, 3:39 am

        Awesome 🙂 I think I will make a whole kit and keep it in my purse too…I was thinking, a little book of inspirational quotations, a marker pen, and some post-it notes…then spread some operation beautiful love in England! <3 xyx

  • nicole July 19, 2011, 5:25 pm

    After the gym today I found a note on my car that read, “You’re cute, have an amazing day!” At first I didn’t know whether to be creeped out or flattered, but it did put a smile on my face! Although I’m sure it wasn’t part of operation beautiful it kind of fell along those lines 🙂

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:25 pm

      Heheh I would’ve been creeped out/flattered.

  • The Healthy Engineer July 19, 2011, 5:47 pm

    One day I’ll post some of these in a bathroom on campus in my college 😀

  • kristin @ wounded fawn July 19, 2011, 6:03 pm

    Just wondering what day of the week or how frequently you decided to do the personal questions post? Looking forward to the next!

    What a lovely note btw! Sure someone is beaming because of it!

    • Caitlin July 19, 2011, 7:25 pm

      I think I’m going to do it once a month in the middle of the month 🙂 So it will be a few more weeks. Just because I want to donate to a charity every time and that could get expensivo.

  • Katie July 19, 2011, 6:07 pm

    You are such a kind person 🙂

  • Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out July 19, 2011, 6:43 pm

    You rock, Caitlin.

  • Meagan July 19, 2011, 6:44 pm

    Go Caitlin! I haven’t found a note yet, but have left a few. 🙂

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 19, 2011, 6:51 pm

    Love this! The gym is such a perfect place to leave these notes – I hear way too much fat talk coming from such strong and beautiful women at my gym!

  • Callie July 19, 2011, 7:17 pm

    That’s such an awesome note. 🙂 Hopefully it’ll make someone’s day.

  • cj weaber @ http://cjh002.wordpress.com July 19, 2011, 7:30 pm

    What an awesome message! I love operation beautiful. Thank you!

  • Tracy @ Commit To Fit July 19, 2011, 11:00 pm

    I love it! I am going to leave some OB notes in the pool tomorrow 🙂

  • Amber @ Stop and Smell the Wildflowers July 19, 2011, 11:10 pm

    Love it! 🙂

  • Amber K July 20, 2011, 12:08 pm

    I need to start leaving more OB notes. I always feel so good when I do.
