Are you beautiful or average?

http://time.com/3773858/dove-choose-beautiful-average-door/

This experiment puts up two doors where women can choose which one they walk through. Beautiful or Average.

Most women choose average. No surprise there, right?

There are some great moments when the mother takes her daughter through the beautiful door and a woman pushes another woman in a wheelchair through the beautiful door.

These women are doing parenting and friendship right.

It also makes me think, we do see our friends and family as beautiful often more so than they see themselves this way. And of course the same goes with our friends views towards us.

I would have chosen the beautiful door. Not because I have a huge ego or think I am better than anyone else, but because that’s how I choose to see myself.

Which door would you have chosen?

The thing is, you can choose beautiful in your every day life.

Walk through that door when you pass a mirror, or when self doubt creeps into your mind. Walk through that door when you wear that slinky black dress or your bathing suit. Hell walk through it when you’re at home in your trackies (Maybe with your eyes shut.)

Walk through that door and take someone else with you.

You can start by telling someone they are beautiful today.

Then tell yourself the same thing. After all, that’s what a friend would do.
