Be Proud of Who You Are with Be You Be True

I'm headed to Blogher '12 this week and I will be celebrating while I'm there.

Positive Messages for Girls, Moms and Bloggers

Having twin girls I have always been hyper-aware of the face that they will always be compared:

"The smart one"

"The prettier one"

"The taller one"

"The funnier one"

"The fast one"

It's inevitable that they will start to hear these comparisons from their friends, classmates, teachers, even coaches, as they get older. Knowing this, I have always tried to teach them to embrace their differences. Love yourself, recognize YOUR strengths, celebrate them, and celebrate the strengths of others. But, ultimately, keep the focus on you. Be the best you, you can be.

The same could be said for some of my fellow bloggers. Not all. SOME.

Celebrate who YOU are!

The blogging arena can be somewhat competitive. There is a lot of discussion and comparison about who gets invited to go on press trips, who has a book deal, and who is speaking on a panel at a conference.. including Blogher.

This is why now is the perfect time to share with my fellow bloggers my love for the Be You Be True line of products. They offer positive messages for girls of all ages to celebrate who they are, right now. Be who you are, embrace it, celebrate it.

The more we focuse on ourselves, on being the best we can be, the happier we are.

Interested in working with Be You Be True?

The folks at Be You Be True are putting together an Ambassador program for bloggers who are interested in reviewing the products, being available for testing new products, and possibly participating in focus groups, among other things.

If you are interested in learning more, go ahead and complete this short survey so they can learn a little more about you!

And, be sure to find me, check out the Be You Be True t-shirts, and follow my tweets while I'm at Blogher! (@janinenickel)

An important message for young girls: be you. be true. 

As the Twofer are turning the corner toward "tween"-dom, I'm paying closer attention to the messages they are receiving...from me, from advertisers, even from school and activities. I'm tuned in a little to more to how they are dealing with issues at school or with their friends.

I know there are struggles going on.

What is important to me is that they have the confidence and the tools to deal with those struggles.

be you. be true.  Whatever that may be.

As I wrote in my annual Letter to my Daughters on their Birthday post, I want them to feel good about themselves. 

Then I saw a friend of mine from college post about her new business on Facebook called be you. be true.

It seems SHE has the same idea with her daughter.

Even better, her daughter created a character called Little Miss Pink that has fun, positive, and empowering "be" messages for girls of all ages.

She decided to create t-shirts so girls all over the world can declare who they want to "be"! Here are just some of them:

Have an idea for a "be" message?

Have your child draw a picture with the message and submit it to the be you. be true. website. You never know - you might just see it on a t-shirt!

Want to share your "be" message?

I LOVE the photos of so many kids feeling really good about themselves. Send in your own photo when you get your t-shirt and share the message that we all can "be" true to who we are.

BE sure to LIKE be you. be true. on Facebook to see the latest designs. There are some really cute!

Disclosure: my friend Karen sent me t-shirts for the girls as a thank you for connecting her with other bloggers through Buzz Cooperative. All opinions are my own and I really love the 'be' messages. Also, the t-shirts are great quality!
