Between the steps challenge | February 2018 – Love yourself



February is a month of love and because we all know how to love everybody else, in this month’s journaling challenge we are going to focus on learning to love ourselves. Sometimes we think it’s such a selfish thing to do, but in reality, how can you express and give love when your own cup is empty? Maybe you do know how to appreciate yourself already, but simply forget to make time and have that ‘me moment’?

So, here is a little reminder 😉 For some, it may be a self-discovery journey throughout this challenge, it can make you feel vulnerable, maybe you will cry for a bit, or laugh like crazy. Either way, take a minute every day and see where these prompts will take you xx



How it works:

Each month we will have a set of daily journaling prompts that I will post here on the blog, over on Instagram and in our private #BetweenTheStepsChallenge group on Facebook. You can do whatever you like – write, draw, paint etc.

I give a great deal of time into putting every #betweenthestepschallenge together and the idea is that they will help you grow in your personal and professional life (while having fun!).

Please, keep in mind that we all start somewhere. Do not worry about what your writing/drawing looks like. Have fun and feed your soul by doing what you enjoy, talking to others and sharing your pages with us to connect – the more people share their pages and our daily prompts, the more we learn, grow, and help each other! Also, do not worry if you miss a few days, just join in whenever you can!
