Today’s topic: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! Let that sink in and hopefully bring a smile to your face.

I had the good fortune to meet Matthew Hoffman, the artist behind the #yabsticker and tour his studio last December. If you haven’t seen this message and stickers all over the world, it is time you should! A simple message that can change your day!

I hope that this little blog post leaves you inspired to share beautiful messages and keep finding new ways to uplift one another! Matthew Hoffman began on this mission back in 2002 and 18 years later, we are in need of this message more than ever…

You are beautiful!

    Love this! As I arrived in Isla Mujeres, MX, last January and made our first customary stop at an ATM machine, there it was! “You are Beautiful” sticker! Ias had been to the YAB studio with you in December and the lovely memories of that moment cake right back and put an extra smile on my face! I was already smiling for having arrived in my little Happy Place I. January escaping Minnesota winter… thanks for the post!
