{Breathe} Mindful Monday: Self-Love Challenge

youSelf-love is awkward. It feels indulgent and strange. The thing is, self-love is the foundation of any wellness practice because you will not be motivated to care for yourself in a thoughtful way unless you truly love and respect yourself. Let’s start now. We can do this together because, honestly, it feels just as vulnerable for me…

It’s a crazy time of year so there is something nice about keeping things simple and that is what I am doing for today’s “Mindful Monday” post. I am keeping it simple and offering you only a few  words. The ask, it isn’t so simple though. But it is very important. I know we can do this. We deserve this. Comment below with “Five Things You Love About You”. I am excited to witness our collective energy on this one. To motivate you a little more, I will donate a new toy to a child in need for every comment on this post. Go!

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha

With love and respect,

Katie (I love my drive, momness, my imperfections, my heart and my ability to be vulnerable with all of you)

Ps. Read more here for this helpful mantra, “I deeply love and respect myself”.

  1. I love this! It’s hard to allow ourselves (especially women) to speak positively about ourselves. Somewhere along the lines we were taught that self-love is self-ish and it’s totally not! In fact, the more we love ourselves, the more love we have to give others 🙂
    My 5 things:
    1) I love that I have worked so hard to be the compassionate and giving person that I am.
    2) I love that I am a positive person and find positivity in others/situations as well.
    3) I love that I have patience.
    4) I love that my body is healthy and it allows me the ability to live a full life.
    5) I love that I have worked incredibly hard to overcome adversity and to be an educated, empowered and strong women.


  2. Super idea!
    1) I love my faith and my relationship with my Savior.
    2) I love that I am an optimist.
    3) I love my resilience.

    5) I love my weirdness/uniqueness – I am the only me!
