getting real: modesty.

It's time for another edition of "Getting Real"'s topic? Modesty.
(everyone take a deep breath before we begin because we're about to get personal)

I grew up & am still a member of the LDS faith, and have been taught & still maintain personal modesty.  I did & still do this not because I was told to, but because I believe that my Father in Heaven wants me to treat my body as a temple & not as an object to be flaunted around.  
Before I go further, I want to share the video that I'm sure many of you have seen- but if not (and even if you have...) it is definitely worth your time.

I watched this 3 times because she put it so eloquently how important modesty is to every. single. woman.

"Modesty is about revealing our dignity" & "How will you use your beauty" are my 2 favorite lines from her speech.  Young, old, single, married, mother, sister, aunt......every woman has the ability to use their body & their beauty for their own good.  Not be looked at by others as an object.
