I was researching the WebM video format and happened to come across a video commercial by Dove that stopped me in my tracks.
With over 55 million views, it may not be the first time you’ve seen it, but you are like me and actually haven’t seen it before then take a quality moment to watch it and take in Kela’s expression when she see’s herself depicted from her own description by herself and that of a stranger.
I’m not sure where they figure has come from, but Dove state that only 4% of women consider themselves beautiful. The message seems to be to take time out and learn to appreciate yourself, and perhaps others, and perhaps that you actually are more beautiful than YOU think.
