What is the Heart Yourself Campaign?

Valentine’s Day means different things for different people but certainly we all think of pink, red, hearts, and love, right? Inspired by my Flaunt It Week and Eating Journey’s Self Love stories, I’d like to launch the Heart Yourself Campaign this Valentine’s.

We are so hard on ourselves more often than not. If you’re as Type A as me, you’re hard on yourself all. the. time. But, enough! Let’s give ourselves a break and instead of finding something to nitpick, let’s find something to celebrate!

Back when I did Flaunt It Week, I said:

my challenge to you for the next week is to find something you love about yourself that you want to flaunt. Find something youโ€™ve always wanted to do but have held back for fear of what others would think. This isnโ€™t about being arrogant, itโ€™s about being confident in yourself and your abilities and loving yourself for who you are…

…find something you love about yourself or would like to love about yourself and find a way to really play it up and flaunt it this week, whether itโ€™s spending some extra time styling your gorgeous hair or wearing a top that accentuates a favorite feature of your body.

This time, instead of finding something about yourself to flaunt, I want you to find something you just love about yourself. The thing you love can be something physical (your eyes, etc) or something about your personality (courage, etc.). Something you can sum up in one word.

How to Join In:

  • Find the one word for something you love about yourself.
  • Now, draw a heart or cut a heart shape out of a piece of paper and write that one word down.
  • Decorate the paper if you’d like. Have fun!
  • Hang your heart up somewhere you’ll see it often as a reminder of how awesome you are. When you feel the urge to pick yourself apart, use your heart to think positively.

I know there are some people out there who don’t love anything (or very little) about themselves. I know because I used to be like that. But, I hope you try to find something to love about yourself, no matter how small it is. Find it. Write it down. Hang it up. Celebrate it. You are more awesome than you know.
