#LoveMe Challenge: Learn to Love YOU in February: Follow & Join In

#LoveMe Challenge Prompts

A few weeks ago Pepper over at Pepper Scraps asked a bunch of us bloggers if any of us would be interested in doing a #LoveMe Challenge this month. It sounded like a great idea to me. So many women have body and self-worth issues and I know I am one of them. I decided I was going to jump on board and give this a try. Some days I may be posting to the blog. Other days I will be broadcasting that days item to a social media channel instead.

#LoveMe Challenge Prompts

Today’s challenge to kick things off is to answer why we are doing the #LoveMe Challenge. Well,  I am doing the challenge for me. I need to find me and be happy with the person I find. I knew I had self-esteem issues but last week they just slapped me in the face talking with my daughter.

This is what happened… I was talking with my daughter who just turned 5 today. I looked at her and said, “You’re so pretty!” Her response threw me for a loop. She looked back at me and said, “I know I’m bootiful! Eveyyyyyybody tells me so.” Then she proceeded to bounce off and go play. I looked at her and I was shocked. All of my children have an immense amount of self-confidence and high self-esteem. People have actually commented on it to me at times and I wondered after talking to my daughter how on Earth did I give children such great self-esteem when I am one of the most self-deprecating people you will ever meet. There are only a few small things about myself that I feel comfortable or happy with and I realized that this needs to change. My daughter who is so small sees her worth better in her few short years on this Earth than I do in all of the almost 40 that I have been here. How sad is that?

I now see that I need to learn a few things from others and learn to respect, value, appreciate and #LoveMe for who I am. I need to get past the negative that I bring into my own soul and that I allow others to give me. I need to find my happy and accepting place.

Do you want to follow along? Then be sure to follow my social media outlets and you can head over to Pepper’s blog, Pepper Scraps and check out the other bloggers that are participating and see what each of them is sharing throughout the challenge. You can also share and answer the prompts each day via your own social media networks. Let’s make this a month of being happy with you!

    I LOVE your daughter’s response. 🙂 It actually made me smile. I’ve printed out the image and I’m going to write down my thoughts on each. It’s hard to say something positive without the negative automatically popping into my head – this is a challenge!!!

    Great ideas!
