Day 8: Write a love letter to yourself

Yesterday's prompt was a love letter to someone else... today's might be a little trickier.

Write a love letter to yourself.

Most of us can find wonderful things to say about other people, but perhaps we struggle a little more to say kind things about ourselves.

Well, not today Satan!

Today, we're gonna be kind to ourselves—and we're gonna write down those kind words.

Think about what your best friend would say if they were asked what they love about you.

Or think about what you do for a living—what's your superpower? What are you really good at?

It can feel uncomfortable to do this but remember: nobody has to read this except you. So let loose and then bask in the warm glow of your own kind words.

Tag me on Instagram or LinkedIn and let me know how you get on with this little writing prompt—did it spark any good ideas? Or help you see yourself differently?

Set a timer for 5 minutes, and... GO!

Happy writing,
