you are beautiful

I grew up in the Chicagoland area. Most of the time, I don't really think of what I might miss. However, I DO miss riding the train and being reminded that, "I am beautiful."

A man named Matthew Hoffman started the "You are beautiful" campaign in Chicago. He basically started with stickers. He and friends places said stickers  around the city. Then, he started taking orders for the stickers internationally and eventually inspired public art installations around the world.

If you are unsure what I am talking about, here is a nice educational video.

I realized that instead of wishing that I was back in Chicago and wishing that I could be surprised with inspiration that I might want to be "a part" of the inspiration itself. So, I will now be attached to my mailbox waiting for the stickers that I just ordered.
