"You Are Purrrfect!!!" A Guest Blog By Angela Ribbler

Today you are seeing a post that is different from the fare that you normally see on CAT CHAT. The post I am featuring has a message that resonates with me and I am certain it will strike a chord with women of all ages.
  
It is wonderful to see young women  who are hip, intelligent, confident, sensitive and gutsy enough to dare to challenge the messages pertaining to beauty/perfection that we are all constantly bombarded with by the media. It is delightful to see women who believe in themselves enough to pursue their own dreams, while encouraging other women to do the same.

I am beaming with pride and can't wait to introduce you to one of these women, my beautiful and brilliant niece,  Angela Ribbler, (who in my opinion is "purrrfect" inside AND out!) ...gather your daughters, friends, nieces, granddaughters...all of the women in your life... read, learn, enjoy and help spread the word!



"YOU ARE PURRRFECT!!!" By Angela Ribbler

A new movement has begun that is reshaping the way people define perfection. The start-up company, Hello Perfect, is spreading the message that the challenge in life is not to become perfect, it's accepting that you ALREADY ARE. My name is Angela Ribbler and I am Caren's niece. She has been kind enough to let me share my message with you.


My best friend, Alexa Carlin, founded the company Hello Perfect because of the unrealistic portrayal of beauty ingrained in our society. Together we are working to transform the way people see perfection and help educate and inspire people all over the world to realize their own meaning for the word "perfect."

Our goal is to turn this company's message into a worldwide movement that will transform the way the fashion and beauty industries dictate perfection to society. We promote our message in a variety of ways including social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, @HelloPerfectt, a DreamCatcher of the Month program, merchandise, including handmade jewelry and T-shirts, inspirational speaking and we are soon implementing an ambassador program so people can spread the message in their local areas.

Our DreamCatcher of the month was created to encourage young individuals to accomplish everything they dream in life. "Don't let someone else catch your dreams. YOU be the DreamCatcher," is the message we want to advocate to these young future leaders and not to let society define their limitations.

We believe that our message is universal and can make a positive impact on every individual. Please visit our website www.HelloPerfect.com, "like" our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter, @HelloPerfectt, and discover ways you can begin to make an impact and discover your own perfection. For more information or to get involved, contact PR@HelloPerfect.com

Thank you again Caren for allowing me to guest blog.

And always remember, you are PERFECT!

  5. thank you everyone! Actually, Angela's best friend Alexa Carlin created "Hello Perfect" Angela is working with her to help spread the message! When I was young (and even sometimes now) I fell victim to the media's messages, I admire many of the young women today who don't "buy" the media messages!

  21. Angela - what a wonderful message to spread and I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment. I am very proud of you and Alexa - too many of us in life struggle with our image, when you are correct, they are already perfect all along.

    I wish you the best with this wonderful project that is limitless in its scope - any age, sex, color and religion can respect and appreciate this message.

  22. Thank you, Caren for posting Angela's article! She is working hard to get the message out that we are pu-r-r-fect the way we are. Of course, my cats Oscar, Jennifer and Rosie know that--it's the humans that need to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Nancy you are most welcome Nancy! Yep I know Oscar, Jennifer and Rosie know that for sure! We could all learn from them! xoxo

    @Deb thank you!! Of course eloquently stated and TOTALLY on the money (as always!!!) xoxoxo

  25. Hooray for you and for your organization! I don't think we realize just how many messages we give our children of the need to be perfect and how they are not measuring up. Beauty is big with girls, but it's also becoming important with boys. It's so sad- we continue to create generations of superficial beings that are only concerned with how they look.

  26. @Benny and Lily bad doggies! lol

    @rumpy amen..."Barbie girls, living in a Barbie world!" Never could stand those kind of girls!

  27. A great message that needs to be heard by all. Young people do terrible things to themselves these days in the pursuit of perfection.

  28. @Alittlesprite thank you and I couldn't agree more!

  29. What a FABULOUS message Angela and Alexa are spreading! I don't think there's ever been a time when we women needed to hear this, more than right now. Cudos, ladies... you definitely ARE perfect!
