Revolution begins with one courageous soul, and can become a gorgeous contagion.
– Eve Ensler
Join in this revolution by starting with yourself. Stop self-condemnation, criticism and judgment. Start self-acceptance, gratitude and love.
– Michelle Minero
Are you up for meeting the challenge of writing a self-love post once a week in the month of August?
Writing a minimum of once a week about how you love yourself through the 7 strands of the Self-Love Diet will help you to stay focused on your personal growth. Healing happens when you commit to practicing self-love. Writing about your practice is one way to take action on this commitment.
I invite you to write once each week and submit your thoughts on your self-love journey to share with the Love Warrior Community this month. By sharing your journey, you will start a conversation about things others can do to feel more confident and loving towards themselves. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your self-love writing, you can write in your own self-love journal. You can get a Love Warrior Community Self-Love Journal here.
Here are some areas you may want to focus on in your writing:
How can you love your body in thought, emotion and action?
How can your thoughts reflect self-love?
How can you lovingly soothe yourself when you encounter uncomfortable emotions?
How can your spiritual self increase your ability to love yourself?
How does loving yourself affect your relationships with others?
What are some loving personal choices you’ve made that have positively impacted your culture at your work, school and at athletic, recreational or spiritual communities?
How can loving yourself positively affect the world?
To submit your self-love writing to the Self-Love Warrior group blog, visit here.
I look forward to reading about your self-love journey!
