Watch: These Women Dare to Defy the “Average” Path
Written by Project Inspired | April 9, 2015
What if each time you were to step into a public space, you were given the choice to walk through an entrance labeled “average,” or a second entrance—one that has been designated as a pathway for the beautiful?
How would you define beauty? Would you feel more comfortable choosing to align yourself with the norm? Perhaps more humble?
Would you be concerned that actively choosing to be label yourself as “beautiful” would imply that you are vain, or even immodest?
When confronted with a choice as real and as physical as selecting a door to walk through, the exercise seems strange, conflicting and yes—daunting. You might even stop, hesitate and spend a great deal of time contemplating your decision.
Yet this is a choice we women are perpetually making—the fork in the road simply isn’t always quite this obvious (or public, we might add). And as it turns out, lots of women either can’t or won’t acknowledge their own beauty. Or, they’re reluctant to openly own it.
And that’s a shame, because “average” is really only an illusion, with every woman’s beauty being unique only to her. So—let’s throw the doors labelled “beautiful” wide open for all women, and line the path with encouragement.
Starting with you.
Which is why we urge you to watch the video below, to imagine that you are in a similar situation, and to press “pause” on your decision until you’re feeling empowered enough to make the only true choice.
Our hope is that these women will provide the inspiration you need to do just that.
