Lately I've been participating in Gala Darling's month of Radical Self Love during February. Radical Self Love is all about loving what you see in the mirror, romancing yourself & getting yourself “un-stuck” when you don’t know how to move forward . She talks about the obstacles & perilous hindrances that most often derail the radical self love journey, & how to STOMP them out.
Above is collage of things that remind me of loving myself - Going on adventures (Paris, how I adore you!), buying a wedding band for yourself as a symbol that you'll put yourself first, Macaroons because they are colourful, delicious and beautiful (& remind me of our Macaroon Hunt!) and fresh white sheets! Who doesn't love new sheets?
Don't be fooled into thinking this is just for those girls (& boys!) with confidence & body issues, because everyone has room in their life to love themselves more! I have never really suffered from low self esteem or had any body issues - I enjoy my own company & I take myself out for lunch or a movie often! BUT , there is plenty room to do more fantastic things. Its especially well timed if your single seeing as St Valentines day is only a week away!
If you bought a ticket to her opening workshop you'll know she set some us quite a bit of homework! One piece of homework is to take a picture of yourself every day in February - the idea being that the more pictures you take the more comfortable you'll be with your body. I have been doing this every day (so far) and it has been interesting! Here are some snaps from today:
And here is my Radical Self Love diary for writing down my notes from Gala's workshops & the homework (please excuse my messy writing!). Mine is red because its the colour of love heheh cliche, i know! But I love it :) Next is finding my Radical Self Love totem... I'm thinking possible a red heart pendant or a ring that says love that I saw at Diva!
