What I See Project

So you know that over here on keepitsimpElle, we’re all about Motivation, Inspiration and Empowerment right?! Well, when an email landed in my inbox about a project that was around “empowering women across the world through the Universal question “what do you see when you look in the mirror?”I just had to be involved!

But then it started to dawn on me, that this one little question had so many answers! It meant that I had to stop and think as opposed to not taking the time to notice. It meant I had to find an answer.

This is my answer. 

You can check out my video here: http://whatiseeproject.com//story/what-do-you-see-when-you-look-in-the-mirror631 {Link Broken}

…in fact…I’ll be brave and just post it right here for you…yikes!

…and if I’m totally honest (which I always am) I’m a little apprehensive about watching my own video! They caught me at a very transitional time in my life, a time that did really call for reflection.

The What I See Project Communicators

I took my interpretation of the question from a health and fitness angle. So what I see in the mirror that relates to why I am active, why I teach and why I even started / have this blog. My video was short and sweet…and after I recorded it, I thought of a million ore things I wanted to say! …But you get to hear from me all the time so hopefully over time, my messages will come through…

As we are all in this together, it’s my pleasure to ‘pass the baton’ to Liz at http://lizsdeafblog.blogspot.co.nz …In Liz’s own words she says her blog covers “deaf issues …and some non deaf stuff…” so pop on over and say hi now or stay tuned for her own personal contribution tomorrow as part of the project. 

Take a peek at my video, let me know what you think in the comments below…and don’t forget that you can contribute too! Record your own video and you could find yourself standing right next to all of us at the launch next month! …See you there?!

    Great post Elle, and great video too 🙂 I felt exactly the same when I filmed mine – I had so much more to say! It's a brilliant project to be a part of. Hope you had fun at the launch x

      Thanks Georgina 🙂 …last night one of the Ambassadors said that a good way to progress is to always say yes! …That's pretty much how I got involved and it was only yday evening that it dawned on me what a great project it was that I said yes to! …such a shame you couldn't be there! But like they said, it is just the beginning 🙂 …p.s watched your video…very true words! xxx

    Hi Elle, and thank you for passing the baton over to me. I too have found after I filmed myself asking the same question, what do I see when I look in the mirror, to find it of some benefit. I did not expect to feel liberated after I did it. It also helped I feel with new journey of discovery and healing too.

      Yes it was lovely to meet you too virtually. Unfortunately I won't be able to make the launch day. It wasn't enough notice for me to put a couple of days off from work. I have bookmarked your blog, as I intend to come back and read more.

    I see the little girl in me that wants to fulfill her dreams. She's pushing me and annoyed w/me lol – I have faith that one day soon, I will. Until then, chill out, little girl!
