February Self-Love Challenge

Can you just smell the love in the air? It’s that time of the year again… Hello, February the month of love and, we all know what coming for us. Valentine’s day! Make sure to mark that on your calendar if you have not already to save you some trouble from your partner. One of my fondest memories of Valentine’s day was being everyone’s valentine in elementary. Plus, all the free candies and chocolate as if it was Halloween all over again. But, now as we get older we either love or dread the day that’s about to come. To all my single friends out there it’s probably a constant reminder that we are alone. However, it’s a chance for us to treat ourselves! This year I’ve decided to challenge myself to a 28-day self-love. It’s also important to show love yourself as much as loving someone else. What a better way to celebrate this month by celebrating us. There’s no need for a willy-wally parties. So, I googled “February Self-Love Challenge” came across a website called thefemmeinist.com. Unfortunately, the website has expired hopefully, it will be back up and running. Luckily, I saved the list before it was too late. I am so excited to begin this challenge with everyone! I will be sharing my posts on my social media @madsradmvmt with the hashtag #FebSelfLoveChallenge. Remember to share your acts as well so we can see each other’s content!
