I'm Worth It | All-Stars Collaboration Video

It all started when Jess challenged us to change the focus on our body - to not zoom in on the negative, but more on the positive beauty.

This challenge is not about self doubt or finding the silver lining; it is about showing others that we HAVE found the silver lining, and we are totally rocking it!!!

The ladies in this video may not be movie stars or rock stars or fashion stars, but we are bright shining stars in our own right seeing the best in ourselves, and are empowered enough to embrace the beauty of our bodies that we love, and that others love us for.

I am proud to be in this video clip that features some of my fave bloggy friends {view the video to see who they are!!}, and so happy to share the maybe imperfect, but human beauty with you too.

Feel free to share the video and the message, that yes, we are worthy of seeing the best in ourselves, yes "I'm Worth It". Better yet, email us your pictures to join in and we might do an extended version :)

Awesome little video, you are all brave women but inspiring at the same time...we are all too hard on ourselves from time to time!

I'm glad to see blogger let you in eventually!
Thanks for sharing. I glove how you have phrased this; it's not about finding the silver lining, but rather we HAVE found it! Beautifully put!

A great initiative by Jess and you're all stars for being in it. I got a bit too busy to think about a contribution but I think it's a perfect length and really gets the message across.

Good morning Ai! I hope you are having a great weekend. This is an awesome post, unfortunately I was unable to view the video, it says...this video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds, so I was a bit bummed that I didn't get to see it, because I was very inspired.

I went ahead and shared the link to it on my blog, because it does go along with the message behind Skylar and what Skylar is all about...real people and inspiration. I'm always looking for stuff like this to share with my readers.

I would love to collaborate with you or any of these girls from this video, so if you are ever interested let me know. I'm always looking for guest bloggers. My mission is to send a healthier and more positive message about beauty and body image to women of all ages, that will make them feel better about themselves. The other night when I was out with my girlfriends, one of them told me her daughter who is only 5 years old asked her if she thought she was fat...she's only 5 and worried about her weight. That just makes me so sad.

Anyway, thank you for posting this, hopefully the video will work for my readers. Even though I didn't get to see it, I am inspired.
