What is one thing you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?
Ever since this year started, I’ve been on a mission to prioritize what’s best for me. From the opportunities I’m accepting to what I’m eating and who I’m interacting with, I’m checking in with myself daily to make sure what I’m doing is a reflection of what I want and deserve.
In that process, I’ve thought a lot about what I need more of and what I want to improve. One major thing I know I want/need more of (because It’s almost nonexistent in my life) is having fun and defining what fun looks like for me. I want to spend more time doing things I enjoy!
What about you? Is there anything you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?

Finish this sentence: I like to boost my self-esteem by ________.
Building my self-esteem is an ongoing journey I work on regularly. On that journey I’ve learned different ways to help myself feel better especially when my mental health isn’t great and I’m feeling depressed, sad or self-critical of what I’ve achieved so far in my life.
I particularly like to boost my self-esteem by doing a combination of these three things: 1. Repeating this affirmation, “I am doing my best and my best is enough.” 2. Going to get my eyebrows done and buying myself something nice (when it’s in my budget). 3. Writing on my blog about something I’ve overcome or accomplished that I’m most proud of.
What about you? How do you boost your self-esteem?
