A little over a year ago my friend Becca started making daily self-love/self-care posts on her facebook page Love Becca. I thought she was secretly spying on me. It was as if she was speaking directly to me.
Let me tell you a little bit about my friend...
Becca is a single mama to a teenage girl, living in the greater Los Angeles area. She has worked as professional organizer for 18+ years, having started out in her career working as an actress. She is also a certified Feng Shui consultant. Throughout her career, and being a single parent, she discovered the importance of living a happy and well balanced life. She believes you have to treat your mind, body, and soul with love to obtain true happiness...Self Love
Becca was my very first roommate when we were both in our twenties. I can attest to her natural talent of organization. She was then and is now, everything that I'm not with organization and planning. At the same time we have so much in common. We both ended up back at our passion for writing to support women.
In her daily Facebook posts, she talks about simple things that we should be doing to take care of ourselves as women. During my busiest years with the boys, I have been guilty of ignoring my own basic self-care. For years I allowed my family to be a priority over taking care of myself.
One day she wrote about making regular doctor appointments. I was like...Hello. How does she know I’m overdue for my annual exam by several months. Then she wrote about drinking more water (not including the ice cubes in my vodka cocktail.) She wrote about having dates with yourself, doing simple things that you love each day, to spending more time doing something creative.
Her writing speaks directly to me.
I believe that her "21 Day Self Love Journal Challenge" will speak directly to you. Better yet, it will give you the opportunity to have a serious talk with yourself.
I hope that you will click the link above and take the challenge. This challenge changed my life and the way that I look at myself. It got me further down the self-love road. I hope you will take the time to give back to your self.
