Celebrate Yourself with the Celebrating Womanhood #selflovechallenge

Celebrating Womanhood #selflovechallenge

Hosted by Living, Learning, and Loving LifeCabin Goddess, Tea with Dee, Living This Moment, and Teachable Scotts Tots Homeschool.

For one day, we want to drown out negativity and celebrate the beauty and pride of women.

These days it seems that some people want us to be ashamed of being women. They want us to believe that we’re less: less intelligent, less important, less human. There is so much negativity out there. For one day, we want to flood the internet with positive messages about women.

Join the #selflovechallenge, and share three positive things about yourself. If you don’t have a blog, share on Facebook, Twitter, a favorite email loop (as long as they don’t mind off-topic messages), or just write it on a Post-it note and put it on your bathroom mirror. You can also share on our Facebook page. (There are only a couple of “rules”. You can pop over to the announcement post to see those.) Continue reading

Take the #selflovechallenge With The Celebrating Womanhood Event on September 16

Celebrating Womanhood #selflovechallenge

Hosted by Living, Learning, and Loving LifeCabin Goddess, Tea with Dee, Living This Moment, and Teachable Scotts Tots Homeschool.

For one day, we want to drown out negativity and celebrate the beauty and pride of women.

These days it seems that some people want us to be ashamed of being women. They want us to believe that we’re less: less intelligent, less important, less human. There is so much negativity out there. For one day, we want to flood the internet with positive messages about women.

For the past two years, we’ve let you get away with shining the spotlight on another woman. This year, it’s all about YOU. As women, we often have trouble putting ourselves front and center. We’re not important, not pretty, not smart, not talented. Just not enough.

But that is SO not true, and we challenge you to break through that barrier. Join the #selflovechallenge on September 16, and share three positive things about yourself. If you don’t have a blog, share on Facebook, Twitter, a favorite email loop (as long as they don’t mind off-topic messages), or just write it on a Post-it note and put it on your bathroom mirror.

Men can participate, too, but we really want women to embrace this. You are amazing, and it’s time you owned it!

Your three things can be just one comment each, or you can give background or elaborate in some way. The positive things can be anything: a physical trait, a talent, a facet of your personality, or anything else you can think of.

The only rule is that you can’t add any qualifiers.

YES = I have beautiful eyes.
YES = I get a lot of compliments on my eyes.
NO = I have pretty eyes. At least that’s what people tell me.
NO = I guess I have pretty eyes, but no one can tell because of these stupid glasses.

Just acknowledge and accept that you have gorgeous eyes and move on. 😉

We’re not looking for afirmations here. Find three things you can love about yourself just as you are. Sure we can all improve something, but you are amazing RIGHT NOW! If you honestly can’t think of anything, ask your friends and family. You should love yourself unconditionally, but sometimes we need a little help realizing that there is something about us to love.

Join our Facebook page, and help us spread the word. We’ll have a linky up on the 16th for you to share your posts.

Celebrating Womanhood: YOU Are An Inspiration!

For one day, we want to drown out negativity and celebrate the beauty and pride of women.

These days it seems that some people want us to be ashamed of being women. They want us to believe that we’re less: less intelligent, less important, less human. There is so much negativity out there. For one day, we want to flood the internet with positive messages about women.

 

In my everyday conversations with other women, I am always surprised to learn that everyone else doubts themselves as much as I do. I don’t know why this continues to surprise me; while every person has their self-doubts, it seems that we women expect so much from ourselves, and when we don’t deliver perfection, we feel as if we’re not good enough. The truth is, no one is perfect, and while we know it in our heads, we don’t seem to really “know” it in our hearts.

So I’ve compiled a list of women who inspire me. This is not an exhaustive list, so if I miss you, find someone to tell you something good about yourself. Actually, you should probably do that anyway. Continue reading

Bloggers Wanted: Second Annual Celebrating Womanhood Blogging Event

Hosted by Living, Learning, and Loving Life, Cabin Goddess, and Tea with Dee.

 

Yes, we’re taking over the internet again to spread positive messages about women. Last year, a few of us got fed up with all the negativity aimed at women and decided that for one day, we wanted to flood the blogosphere with something positive. We had so much fun and such a great response that we decided to do it again this year.

For one day, we want to drown out negativity and celebrate the beauty and pride of women.

These days it seems that some people want us to be ashamed of being women. They want us to believe that we’re less: less intelligent, less important, less human. There is so much negativity out there. For one day, we want to flood the internet with positive messages about women.

Celebrating Womanhood. Because Women Are Amazing.

I had the idea for this event several weeks ago, but in the excitement of the planning, I never actually figured out what I was going to write. That didn’t come to me until after we had everything up and running. Obviously,  I had “ideas”, because I wrote the original announcement post. I just didn’t have any clue what I was going to write. Then I got to thinking about all the fabulous women that have been part of my life. I can’t possibly include all the amazing women I know, but I’ll highlight a few. Continue reading
