Today I’m announcing the start of a project that I would love every single woman reading this to take part in – the project is called “Accentuate the Positive” and I want everyone to do just that!
At the beginning of July I wrote a post called “How To Make The Most Of Your Best Feature“, and the response has been simply fantastic. It seems to have got women everywhere talking about the fact that we DO put ourselves down far too much, and don’t spend enough time being proud of the parts we like about ourselves. The topic has been discussed at length on Twitter and Facebook as well as posts on other blogs (not just through the comments left on the original post) – and I’m glad that it’s got all of you excited about it!
I asked several of the ladies who commented on the post if I could use their quotes and pictures for this post… is there anything more inspiring than reading positive thoughts from women – those that aren’t moaning about their hips or their arms or their crows’ feet?
Top row L-R: Trea of Treasures n Pleasures, Amber of Forever Amber, Louise of The Princess Prudence Diaries
Middle row L-R: Me!, Emma of The Awkward Magazine, Victoria of The Wind of Inspiration
Bottom row L-R: Ashlea of Books, Pups & Stilettos, Greetje of No Fear of Fashion, Patti of Not Dead Yet Style
When the Best Feature post went out, inspiration came to me straight away to set up a new Facebook page – I knew that the way I’d recently felt good was by having encouraged women to feel good about themselves by stating what their best features were (thank you to all these gorgeous ladies for agreeing to let me use their pictures and quotes).
The Accentuate the Positive Project
So – this leads me onto the second stage of all this Best Features shenanigans. I have set up a Facebook page neatly entitled Accentuate the Positive and this is where EVERYONE gets to do what these ladies did – and show off all our best features!
So if you’re still reading this post, then I want YOU to take part. The idea is that if the project intrigues you enough to take a look at it and read what everyone’s written and uploaded, then you should join in and do the same – please don’t be shy! All that you’re required to do is to post a photo of yourself to the wall that shows off your best feature like my lovely ladies above, then say WHY it’s your best feature. It’s not just open to bloggers, it’s open to everyone, everywhere (hence me choosing Facebook as the platform). And please “Like” the page too!
Need some inspiration on how to decide what your best feature is? Then read the original post that started this whole thing off: https://www.notdressedaslamb.com/2013/07/how-to-make-the-most-of-your-best-feature.html – I hope it helps you either decide what it is, or what you want it to be!
So what do you all think – will you take part? Will you be encouraging friends and family to do the same? I hope so! I think it could be the start of something really big and truly inspirational, because the stars of the project will be all of YOU.
And we all deserve to be fabulous and be proud about that, don’t we?
