The Self-Love Challenge

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

At the end of July, I attempted at a 40 days Self-Love Chsllenge!

It was mirrored after the Love Dare from

the movie Fireproof. Have you seen it? It is AWESOME!

This is something I tried to do before in my marriage and after. I failed each time.

It challenges you to keep a positive mind through any challenge your day may bring. Funny enough, it was as though the day was worst when I challenged myself to not be affected by it.

This time around, I made a rule - to repeat days until I get them right. I really wanted to push myself to choose love - ALWAYS!

Basing a self-love challenge on the Love Dare was important because for a very long time I looked in others for validation. It was interesting to understand that it also never worked because I did not love myself in the first place.

I had enough insecurities to help me fail each time - This time around, I dared to love me:

It took me close to 60 days to complete it, but I did it.

Try it out & tell me how you feel!
