Day 7 and the final day of the #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells…
So late doing this one because, well, its been a tough old day! I got through it though! #proud
“Im celebrating myself because…”
I am strong, determined, kind, generous, thoughtful, loving, positive, passionate, caring, inspiring, driven, but most of all, I AM BEAUTIFUL! INSIDE AND OUT! 💗
I have absolutely loved doing this again & have learnt even more about myself than last time I did it!
Its been super great to have the support of all the other goddesses also taking part in this challenge!
If you don’t already practice self love, I thoroughly recommend it! We all should love ourselves more! #preach
Thank you once again Melissa Wells for the wonderful opportunity to reflect on who I truly am once more! Look forward to the next one!
Day 5 #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells
‘Make a loving choice’
After my lovely Pilates class this morning, I came home, mindfully ate my lunch and then snuggled with our boys on the sofa.
Something I used to always neglect for myself was rest!
So easy for me forget that I need twice the amount of rest as healthy individuals!
Day 4 #7DaysOfSelfLove challenge with @iammelwells
REDEFINING what you consider to be a “treat”
A treat for me has always been something sweet!
Thanks to @louiseavilesyoga (my yoga teacher & healthcoach) and the amazing work I have been doing with her, I am no longer owned by sugar! Yasss! 👏
My initial thought to treat myself was with flowers but then I thought, yeah, that’s nice but I by flowers often so it didn’t seem like a massive treat!
So then I remembered I needed some new mascara! I’m not one that always feels the need to wear makeup, i wear it because It makes me look more awake (thanks ms)
I know to some buying new mascara wouldn’t be classed as a treat but, I’ve always bought cheaper products & gasped when seeing the price of the branded products!
Not today! Nope, I treated myself to some new proper decent mascara that you can actually tell I’m wearing!
Walking past the tulips I grabbed the prettiest ones because I deserve those as well!
*ALSO VERY PLEASED TO SAY NO FILTERS HAVE BEEN USED AND I TOOK THE ‘BEAUTY’ OPTION OFF BEFORE TAKING THE PICTURE AS WELL!*
Very happy! 🌷👑👸
Day 2 #7daysofselflove challenge with @iammelwells is to share something that your proud of. ♿This video says it all to me! 😂😂😂
I’m proud of the strong person I’ve become since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 6.5 years ago!
I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am to accept this disease, I wouldn’t have believed I was the same person 3-4 years ago!
Now I do my best to embrace what ever challenge comes my way, including what u see in this video!
Needing the use of a wheelchair when out for long periods.
This has been a hard thing to accept recently, because I know how heavy I am to be pushed, and hate the thought of people having to do it!
When were in Barcelona last year, I was in my wheelchair every day! If I hadn’t I wouldn’t have enjoyed visiting incredible sites like the Olympic Stadium (Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys)
Of course I’d have missed out on this great fun too! Taking the wrong route on the way back from the Stadium!
Ok so, its the first day of the #7daysofselflove with Mel Wells
Today’s challenge is to share one thing that you love about yourself!
Before my MS diagnosis, I was in a really confident state of mind and felt comfortable saying “I love every part of my being”
Since then I’ve always felt uncomfortable saying I love any part of myself other than my smile and my soul!
I understand that it’s okay to have self appreciation and self love, as I have been in that place before, but i find it hard now, 7 years later, to accept the change in myself, in my figure.
The other hard thing for me today is to share this about myself so publicly!
I hate the thought of anyone feeling sad for me, so things like this I would rather keep between myself and close friends!
*this is not a pity post, this is my journey to self love*
I’m always up for a challenge though, to prove to myself that I’m working on being a better version of myself!
The other thing you will notice is there is no picture of me, just my very raw, messy handwriting!
The picture is from one of my actions I had to do for my health coach session with Louise.
‘Write a letter from your future self’
I hope it will all make sense when you read it/if you can read it!
I didn’t want to re-write it and pretty it up because, that just wouldn’t be the right thing to do!
