Love Yourself Challenge Week Two: 25 Reasons Why You Love Yourself

Ladies & Co. introduced the “Love Yourself Like A Queen” challenge last week and it’s already making an impact!  The 7-week challenge was created for women to self-reflect and look within ourselves through God. Last week we wrote love letters to our first loves, ourselves! Week 2’s activity was to think about 25 reasons you love yourself and I’m honored to be sharing my reasons. 25 reasons should come easy to a woman of confidence, but it took more time than anticipated to create my list.  I even had to pull in love ones to complete it, but this is my perfect list! Week 2’s challenge wasn’t just about the list, it was an activity to look from within to examine yourself in a positive light. In this life, we are our worst critics but this gave us an opportunity to reflect on the elements, characteristics and qualities that make us the beautiful queens we are!

Note to you

Note to you,

You matter.
Be patient enough to wait for the most perfect and beautiful love. It will come to you, and you will know it when you see it because God will reveal it to you. don’t seek love out because you’re lonely.
You are worth it.
Look at all the reasons why you should be giving up, and look how you’ve overcome each and ever challenge thrown at you. You are more than a conqueror.
You are a valuable member of society.
Queen, which is what you are, hold your standards high and true. Queens don’t step down from their thrones for nonsense. A Queen is a Queen with or without a King.
You fail to realize how lovely you really are. Inside and out.
Do not let your past hold you back from the incredible future that is coming your way. The past is the past, and nothing new is going on there. Move forward, and be happy.
Wear your skin, as your badge of honor.
Stop apologizing for things that are not your fault, and stop blaming others for things that are. Take responsibility for your actions, because they are yours.
You are appreciated and loved.
Quiet the noise in your mind. The only voices you should hear are God’s and your own. Stop renting spaces in your mind to people who refuse to pay rent, and are destroying your peace.
Be passionate about everything that matters to you.
Watch the company you keep. Because people will judge you based off of who you are around.
Keep the sun at your face.
You have to accomplish everything for yourself. Make you happy, no one else. It is all about you. Never lose sight of who is important. You are more important than everyone else, but God.
I am rooting for you.
