Valentine’s Day is the day of love. It’s a day where we make sure our spouse or significant other knows how much we love them. We shower them with gifts, write love letters, and go on a special date.
A lot of people extend Valentine’s Day to anyone they love–their kids, parents, friends, siblings, etc. “I love yous” are shared, cards are mailed, flowers are delivered.
But in the midst of showing those around us how much we care, we often forget to remind ourselves of our love. And reminding ourselves is probably the most important of all. Think about it: the people around you probably already know how much you love them. Your kids know it because you make them food, tuck them in, cuddle them when they’re sick, and have tickle fights. Your significant other knows it because you massage his back after a long day at work, kiss him when he gets home, and make his favorite meal. Your friends and parents and siblings know how much you love them because of your day to day actions.
But do you know how much you love you?
I think a lot of us have forgotten. Many of us aren’t even sure if we DO love ourselves. Sadly, some of us are sure we don’t.
It’s about time we change that! I would love for every woman (actually every person!) out there to really, truly love themselves!
I wish I could give that self-love to everyone, but I can’t. But here’s what I can do:
A challenge! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, let’s challenge ourselves to learn and remember what we love about us. Let’s STOP this cycle of self-deprecation and focusing solely on our flaws. Let’s learn to REALLY love ourselves. We’re worth it!
That’s why I created the 7-day Love Yourself This Valentine’s challenge. Starting February 8th and going until Valentine’s Day, I created one task per day to help you (and me!) show love for ourselves. The challenges will take about 10-20 minutes per day and will help you feel more compassion and love for yourself.
We could all benefit from being a little kinder to ourselves!
The challenge will take place both on Instagram and via email. On Instagram, I’ll put up a post each morning with a brief explanation of that day’s challenge. On Instagram stories, I’ll go into a little more depth about the challenge and share my experience with you.
If you sign-up for the challenge via email, you’ll get each challenge delivered to you the night before so you can plan it into your day and figure out when to complete it. You’ll also get a FREE printable for each day to help you complete the challenge (including a handy checklist).
Are you ready to feel a little more love and kindness for yourself? Are you ready to end the nit-picking and fault finding that goes on in your head? Are you ready to look in the mirror and smile because you really love the woman staring back at you?
I know I am! So let’s do this. Who’s with me? 🙋 You can sign-up on the form below, or head to this page for more info. If you don’t get a confirmation within an hour of signing up, check your spam folder and add my email to your address book to be sure you receive the challenge emails.
