I was cruising around the web checking out some of my favorite spots to find a gorgeous Valentine’s picture to share with all of you today! (Happy Valentine’s Day, by the way!) And I stumbled across this fabulous Choosing to Love Myself challenge from this group of amazing bloggers below:
@ THESMALLSEED + @BEAUTY_REDEFINED + @ASHLEYSFRESHFIX + @GPARRISH + @HAILEYDEVINE + @KELLYEJENSEN + @MELANIEBURK
I think of Valentine’s Day as a day to love other people and hadn’t even considered that it could be a time to really recommit to loving ourselves. These ladies are challenging all of us to go 18 days without saying or thinking a single negative thing about ourselves. (Guys, sorry the quote is a little lady-centered, but you should do this too!) At first, I didn’t think this was any big deal. But, wow. Have you ever really paid attention to the things you say to yourself? I have this morning, and, let me tell you, I would NEVER say a lot of this stuff to anyone else!
These beautiful bloggers are challenging all of us to change the way we think about ourselves, to quit criticizing who we are or, maybe even more important, comparing ourselves to everyone else. And they have created this fabulous download packet to make it easy to follow along! You can follow at The Small Seed or with the #choosingtolovemyself on Instagram.
Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all. I LOVE every one of you and am so appreciative of all of your incredible support. Thank you for coming along in this journey with me. I hope that you get to spend today with people that you love–and that, today, you take the time to be kind to yourself as well!
