Hey everyone, it’s your girl Lauren! After much deliberation, I’ve decided to delete all of my old posts on this blog & start fresh (except for my ‘a little bit about me’ post). My new goal for this blog is to get more comments & get to know some more people in the blogging world, so please feel free to comment if you have any questions or connections😊. Today at school, my class did an activity relating to self-love & it was incredible, so I’ve decided to share about it with you. So without further a do, let’s get started!
We had a few high schoolers come down & talk to us about self-empowerment & self-love. At first I thought that this was just going to be another one of those corny things where someone tells you about why you should love yourself, but I feel like the way they did it made it really impactful. We were sitting in a classroom (about 14 of us, all girls) & our instructors told us to write down 10 things that we loved about ourselves, but the twist was that you couldn’t write down anything about your appearance. I found this part really difficult & when the time was up, I had only written about 4 things. I guess I had just never really thought about it that much, you know? I couldn’t thing of much that I liked about myself💔.
Then we made & decorated little bags & the instructors gave us notecards. We had to pass our bags around the room, & everyone wrote something that they liked about the person who’s bag they got. Once everyone had gotten notes from everyone else, we got to read what people said about us. Let me tell you, my heart started GLOWING💛. I was in a room with girls who I didn’t talk to much, but they still had the nicest things to say about me. They all said that I was amazing at basketball & that I was really funny. Someone even said that I was extra (that’s very accurate)😂.
It was crazy looking back at it though. Me, myself, & I, who I’ve know longer than anyone else in that room couldn’t think about 10 things that I liked about myself, but all of these semi-strangers had the sweetest things to tell me. They said that I had a positive energy & that I was very encouraging💗. I would have never guessed in a million years that those people would say those things about me. Either way, it totally brightened my day & I was in such a great mood for the rest of the day😇.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog, it really means a lot to me! If you are a teacher, or even a student, I would recommend that you do this activity at school, it really is mind blowing. That’s it for today! I appreciate you all so much & I hope that you have a blessed day❤️.
