I'm sure by now most of you have seen the new Dove commercial but just in case you haven't :

Since I've often struggled with low self-esteem, this commercial really resonated with me. When I was watching the extended version, ( http://realbeautysketches.dove.us/ ) , one of the ladies mentioned "I have this thing about dark circles under my eyes and that wasn't even in the sketch that was created from the stranger's description of me".  Wow. I could totally see myself saying the exact same thing!

If you've seen this commercial, what do you think of it? Do you think you would describe yourself as beautiful as you really are?

Funny, my daughter actually showed this to me the other day. I'm always the last one to see the coolest new stuff on youtube. SIgh.

This is sooo true! My daughter will be heading off to college soon and I worry that some of her self-confidence and esteem will be eroded away by the whole "college experience".
