Self Love Challenge - Day 5
Friends! If you are still with me I am so proud of you!! This challenge isn't easy. It's not supposed to be. But by sticking with it and doing it, you are saying to yourself that you are important. You matter. And then time you make for yourself is invaluable. So if you are here, and you are still doing it, let's go! And if you are here, but maybe fell off after the second day then that's ok. Pick back up where you left off and recommit to yourself. When I did this challenge for the first time last year, I also only made it to day 3, so I understand. But now doing this again, I can tell you the push is worth it. So make that time for yourself, pick back up where you left off and get to lovin' on you!
See below for a reminder of the rules and the journal prompt for today.

Complete at least 30 minutes of some physical activity that makes you feel good. That could be yoga, running, taking a walk, doing an online dance class. Whatever it is, just make sure you are moving intentionally for at least 30 minutes.
Journal Prompt: What do you need to start saying yes to? What do you need to start saying no to?
Too often we are our own worst enemies. We get in the way of our true potential because we say yes to certain things or no to others. So today, I want you to think about that. What is getting in the way of you being you. What do you say yes to, that maybe you should be saying no to? What do you say no to (for whatever reason) that you should be saying yes to? This one is tricky, so don't beat yourself up if it takes you a long time to think of the list.
Things I will start saying yes to:
My self - and believing that I have the skills necessary to achieve my dreams
My body - and listening to its needs rather than pushing through the pain and discomfort
My desires - and finding a way to bring them to life. For too long I have been afraid of failing, but it's time to get over that. I need to just say yes to what I have been wanting to do for 10+ years and just make it happen!
Things I will start saying no to:
Spending time with people when I really need alone time or just don't feel like it
Helping others with out any compensation for my time or energy
One sided relationships - I give way to much and don't receive enough in return
