Since November 2015 I’ve been throwing some pretty random-ass posts your way. Ranging from your basic inspiration and general thought to some personal stories; all in the theme of loving yourself.
My most recent post (which you can read here) talks about WHY I’ve been so sporadic, and I expressed how I plan on changing that. However, it’s been a month now and STILL nothing has happened.
I’ve ACTUALLY been on the DL concocting some serious love-yourself-mojo to share with you bad-ass-betches(and brehs).
I wanted it to be good. I wanted it to be inspiring. I wanted it to be simple. I wanted it to be truthful and compelling. Most of all, I wanted to commit to something I could share with you all on the reg(ular).
What is it I have planned, you ask?
STARTING JUNE (because JUNE rocks and it’s SUMMER Y’ALL).
You can say you love yourself every day, but sometimes it just doesn’t sink in – or it takes a little longer. I think giving yourself something everyday that makes you feel happiness, joy, excitement, melancholy; or any other human emotion that invokes a response is worth experiencing.
YOU have the power to allow yourself to experience it.
Daily giving will be about giving myself moments, things, smiles, food, love, whatever I need at least ONCE a day. To keep it short I’ll be posting it via social media ONLY – if it requires a little more explanation you may get a blog post.
I’ll be keeping it pretty open because I write better without boundaries.
I also write better when I have a schedule…
Every FRIDAY at 6PM I’ll post a WEEKLY LOVE blog about a part of me.
I’ve found telling myself I love a part of myself means eventually I do. At the very least, it begins the healing process. So, I thought ‘what if every week I chose a part of my body and took a moment each day to tell it that I loved it?’ I’ve done it before in one area of my life and it changed my thinking drastically.
Each post will have a general of what, how it went, a story about it all, and how I feel now. Again, Keeping it open for interpretation helps me do things better so that’s what I’m going to do.
On the FIRST and the LAST day of EVERY MONTH by 6PM I’ll post a blog about my MONTHLY ADVENTURE.
I thrive on adventures. When I talk about adventures, I’m talking about going to GREECE (whichisstillverymuchhappeninginJULYandIcantwaitOMG) to sitting at home watching all the MARVEL movies in chronological order. Whatever I need that month to find happiness, health, and some love is what I’ll do.
At the beginning of the month I’m going to tell you what I WANT to come out of the month and at the end of the month I’m going to tell you what ACTUALLY happened.
Whenever the fuck I feel melancholy enough to dive into this shit I’ll post.
I’m not going to tell you what I’m aiming for here. It’ll be a surprise. But our present comes from our past, we are built up of all these wonderfully intricate past experiences that sometimes we try to shut out, sometimes we embrace head on, and sometimes they consume us and hold us prisoner.
I love my past but I am still exploring every little crevice I can get my hands on. When I feel it is important to share with you to drive home a JUST LOVE YOURSELF point, imma share it in style and get you all feeling super good about yourself.
Or I’ll make you cry.
It could go either way.
There you have it. Four ways you’ll be hearing from me starting JUNE.
DAILY (dontshortme)GIVING, WEEKLY (fucking)LOVE, MONTHLY (ohjesuswhatwasIthinking)ADVENTURES, and REMEMBER WHEN(youlaughedatmeandIcried).
Okay, but serious. Keeping it basic, without my colorful interpretations.
DAILY GIVING, WEEKLY LOVE, MONTHLY ADVENTURES, and REMEMBER WHEN.
Why am I doing this? What are YOU going to get out of this? You’ll be getting a front row seat to a journey of LOVE, and like all rom-coms you want it to end in both you and yourself falling hard for one another. Like so hard you get uncontrollable ugly(beautiful) crying face and everything is good in the world.
I don’t want you to be just viewing this. No, I want more from you, friends.
What do I want from you? I want you to engage. YES, engage with me. Comment and tell me YOUR stories; your weekly love, daily giving, adventures, remember when…
TELL ME! I want you to come along WITH ME for this LOVE YOURSELF ride.
Because, after all, I started this so you could not only experience the journey with me, but be apart of it too.
The quickest way to ENGAGE is to follow me on my multiple social media platforms…
and talk to me. I reply. I promise. I can be pretty chatty.
NOW THAT’S IT. SUMMER IS IT.
I’m dubbing it the SUMMER OF JUST LOVING YOURSELF BABES BECAUSE WHY NOT.
That might be a little too long.
Stay tuned, only a week a way before the FUN begins.
This is me excited ——–>
Okay, that’s a pretty scary picture. But I got really excited and felt like a snap shot was the only way to express that. Also, it’s pretty damn candid.
COMMENT! LET ME KNOW WHO’S INTO LOVING THEMSELVES LIKE THE BADASSES THEY ARE.
I also maybe kind of launching a mailing list to go with this bad boy adventure. It’ll be monthly, short, and oh so sweet.
