Research shows it takes 21 days to create a habit— So if we add another seven days for good measure, that brings us to February and its 28 day month. What a perfect month to cultivate a habit of Self-Love! I’m thrilled to announce my first ever Self-Challenge on Grace Black Ink. This challenge will be open for all to join. Please spread the word!
28 days of Self-Love what you will need:
- Approximately 30 mins set aside each day: 5-10 minutes to read each post, 10-20 mins for each exercise, and as much time as you’d like to spend creating. You can come back to each step at any time.
- A fresh notebook and a pen you love to create with.
- A positive, gentle outlook on each new day.
28 days of Self-Love guidelines and info:
- Each day will contain an image, prompt exercise, suggested poem style to try your hand at, and an accompanying music playlist here on the website. (I will be participating too.)
- Some days we will be writing poetry, some days short prose, and some days stream-of-consciousness writing. Some days we will combine all three.
- We will be cultivating Self-Love through creativity, breath, and gratitude.
- You may share your journey and creations as privately or publicly as you wish.
- You can comment directly on each post with your contribution for the day, link to a personal website or blog each day or any other social media of your choosing. Or you could choose to just read and comment on others’ progress.
- The key is to get involved. You may maintain any level of privacy or anonymity you choose, but the healing begins when you do the self-work. And connecting with others and their individual journeys is a wonderful part of the process.
- Each photo below will become a live link on the correlating week and day.
- We will begin on February 1, 2018. Links will go live at midnight EDT.
- Want daily reminders and a live link for each corresponding day? If so, please click subscribe below.
- I will be promoting this challenge on Instagram and Twitter and would love for you to spread the word as well.
Love and Ink,
