(New Video Post) What I forgot About #SelfLove

Hey guys, Happy Self Love Saturday!!

Today’s video is a reminder about the maintenance of #SelfLove. I often meet people who think starting a “self love journey” means now life is perfect and your confidence is perfect and everything should just come together in a nice little bow. But in my experience that’s definitely not the case! The point of Self Love is awareness, acceptance and improvement. Maintaining that cycle is all that matters and understanding that in order to keep your self esteem up, and your self confidence then you have to constantly be doing the little work. This video is a reminder of some of the steps that I forgot to maintain my own self love.

(New Video Post) Feeling Rejected #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday!

On Tuesday my friends and I had a Bible Study meet up, and I prayed to have my overwhelming sense of rejection removed from my spirit.

I’ve been feeling fairly low about myself. There’s just been a series a lot of little things that have made me feel….rejected. That’s the only word I have for it, it’s a strange feeling, because it’s a little different to “things not working out” or even how I’ve felt in the past when it comes to my off and on depression. Rather, the feeling of “rejection” feels out of my hands, I know that’s not right to say, but that’s why this video is about pushing through the ugly feelings that come over us from time to time. I’ve been working very hard at just trying to push past this phase that I’m in and recognize that it’s temporary!

But in better news, I’m doing a Self Love Saturday Live Session on Youtube Next Week (May 6th) Woop! Woop! 9am pst/12pm est so please come and join me!

(New Video Post) When You Feel Lost #SelfLoveSaturday

Hey guys!

This video was made on a day when I was truly unsure of myself and what I was doing and why any of it mattered? I was really afraid of putting the video together because I know a lot of you watch Self Love Saturday for guidance and inspiration, but I thought it was important to also acknowledge the moments of discomfort in your life and how you feel in those times. The discomfort can be used as inspiration as well, it’s difficult to find it in the moment but trust me, it’s there. Check out my video below.

(New Video Post) “Big Little Lies” #SelfLoveSaturday

(New Video Post) The Importance of Creativity #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday Friends!

Today my video is simple but important.

Creativity! If you don’t have it already, you need an outlet, you need a release and something that is apart of your life that is purposeful, challenging and creative. Adding creativity, talking about creative endeavors, putting an expectation and a plan on your life or day, no matter how small or big is such an important part of Self love.

I am blessed to be a full time creative but I’ve seen the importance of having a creative outlet has been for my friends who aren’t like me, so again, my message is simple, be creative, find something creative for yourself!

(New Video Post) When Your Help For Others Isn’t Working? #SelfLoveSaturday

Happy Self Love Saturday Friends!

Today’s video is inspired by a few experiences I had in late December/early January. I’m a natural helper and a “fixer”. I have a slight Olivia Pope complex and will gladly take over your problems in hopes of solving every single one. This is not right, it’s very unhealthy and is apart of my regular self sabotage of taking on others problems as if they are my own and feeling all of the pressure and stress along with it. Basically being one of those people who says, “I don’t like drama” but I’m all up in the mix. Taking on all of their bags, and getting caught up in the drama because now I’m in the position of “savior”. I’m learning that just because I like to help that doesn’t mean the kind of help I’m giving is useful or even needed.

Apart of Learning self care ┬ámeans knowing when to admit that what you’re doing is not right, I can look past my own ego and say, though I want to help, what I can offer is not helping you because you’re not growing or learning but rather just becoming dependent on me. As a friend I want to help you and I want to remain sane so lets talk about the right options for giving you support. Check out my video below and let me know if you’ve been in a similar position.
