Yesterday, we talked about self-love, and many of us engaged in a sweet but essential exercise about it. If you missed that, you can check it out here.
Today's writing mission is to write about self-love.
There are a couple of options. You could write a blog post tailored to your audience and focus on self-love (how does self-love play out in our relationship to food? In relationships? In your creative or spiritual work?).

If you don't have a journaling practice, why not give it a try? You can find all the pre-challenge prompts here.
P.S. I recently wrote about my number one self-love practice these days -- prenatal yoga-- and the kind folks at elephant journal published it. It can be a very publishable topic if you can find a unique angle to come from. o dive on in and see what happens!
P.P.S. A couple of folks have sent me emails about how much they're loving the images and quotes we've been using. So glad to hear it! You can get your beauty and inspiration fix here on Instagram and Pinterest.
