Time to Get up and Do Something

Listen to this song please and keep reading...

Picture Created on:

I think we all need some lightening up.
So I created Operation Solace.
Basically every time you complete a task on the following list, I will enter your name into a giveaway, but the ultimate prize is secret. But even if you don't win the giveaway, at least we know we contributed to some solace, especially in this economy.
Now you must submit a photo or video every time you complete an item on the list. And send that photo or video here to
If you for some reason can't send a photo or video, email me and let me know. Thank you again!

Now for The List:
1) Take a sticky note, put the words "You're still beautiful" (or something to that effect) on it. And then place it in a public restroom's mirror, OR in the weight watchers, diet pills, slim fast etc. sections at the grocery store. This requires a photo.
2) This one is for you. Play your favorite dance song, and dance to it any way you want until you feel even a blip of joy. If you send in a video for this, it's worth three entries.
3) This one requires no photo or video, but you have to be honest in doing it: I want you to give a random compliment to someone you wouldn't normally pay attention to.
4) Go out one day without any makeup at all and dress simply. And maybe you'll realize how wonderful you really are, without any of that extra stuff. This requires a photo.
5) Smile your most genuine smile. This one definitely requires a photo.

Remember to leave a separate comment for each task you complete. I'll post more task periodically throughout the following months.
Thanks! And sorry I've been MIA. I'll reply to all comments soon.

Have a wonderful time doing these!
Love, Morena

P.S. If you don't want to be entered in the giveaway and just want to do this for fun, still send me photos/videos. I want to put them together in a post to see what we've accomplished.

Please watch A Walk To Remember on Type in "A Walk to Remember" Part 1. If you haven't seen this movie yet, I have a feeling that you're going to like it.

I think this is a great idea. I give advice/support/friendly contact to the girls at It just makes me feel really good to be helping people.
