It’s All Because of You

by Heather on May 25, 2011

About 2 weeks ago beautiful Faces of Beauty reader Melissa left a comment saying she was glad to find out about the blog from All You Magazine.  Immediately I was intrigued and found out that Faces of Beauty is part of a feature about women who have learned to love themselves just as they are!

I have to say, the second I found the magazine on the shelves at WalMart I had tears in my eyes and was completely shaking.  Not the cool kind of shaky where maybe there’s a slight hint of quiver and a glistening tear rolling down a blushed cheek.  No, the kind of shaky where people try to tackle you because they’re afraid you’ll fall over and hurt yourself.


I immediately bought a handful of the magazines and have been sending them out to family and friends because I am so proud.  But you know what?  I’m not proud of me at all for this; Faces of Beauty has never been about me.


It’s about YOU.  And the reason it’s being thrust more into the open and public eye is because of YOU.

I’d just like to say a big THANK YOU to all of the women who have willingly put themselves out there on the blog.  I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all of the women who haven’t submitted anything but took the time to love themselves, just as they are.  I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has retweeted, emailed, facebooked, and otherwise spread the word about Faces of Beauty.


Thank you all for being the incredible women and men that you are, using your heart and your true beauty to encourage others daily.  I love you all!

congratulations, Heather!! that is very cool and well deserved! I’m reading this as I watch Oprah’s final show in the background – as she’s talking about people’s passions and using them to change the world… and it resonates here. Thank you again for doing this – it is truly awesome.
