I have decided to do a year-long project on self-love and self-respect which I am calling my 365 Project! I began on Valentine’s Day this year, as a way to hold the space for myself to be my own Valentine and shower myself with love.
Today I am at Day 12, and I am having a very interesting experience. First, just the joy and excitement of discovery of what I might be able to love about myself each day is a fun and often daunting task. But second to that, I have discovered a whole clan of friends and family that have decided in their own way to go along on this journey by participating in their own 365 Projects, and I am so utterly grateful and honored that they thought this crazy little idea of mine was with merit.
As part of the project I am using a tracing of my body on a giant piece of paper that I fill in each day with that day’s unique lovable quality. Then I film my progress along with clips of things that come to mind, my reactions, my thoughts, my feelings. And I post it weekly(ish) on my YT channel. Thus holding space for myself to be accountable and yet transparent with my experiences.
And as an offshoot of the project, I am taking more care with myself, I am making choices that reflect the love and respect I am working through, which is bringing me more joy in experiencing the world and hopefully bringing more love into my interactions.
I would love to share my progress with you, 365 Project and find out if you have ever done a project, plan, gift, course, as a way to hold yourself to a higher level of love and value.
In 365 experience,
