An afternoon filled with good energy, blissful vibes, and true self adoration. That is what we experienced this weekend at our premier Self Love Saturday mixer.
My heart was bursting as different women stopped by and took a moment to declare their love for themselves. Filling their cups with wine and eager to dive into the different activities garnered towards building their self-love. We wrote the beautiful truths about ourselves, laughed over our struggles, and we took one-step closer to truly acknowledging the greatness within ourselves.
One of the many truths that our mixer helped me to recognize is that everyone is in need of some self-love time. @Millispeaks, @JelisaTheWriter and I were fortunate enough to be the muses behind this self-centered event. Launch Houston, a versatile boutique nestled within the George R. Brown Convention Center, opened its doors as the setting for this truly magnificent self-love adventure. We started with just one table and quickly realized that the desire to spend some self-love time affected more than just a few people. Partakers took advantage of the opportunity to declare their love for themselves and participated in every single activity that we had prepared. Activities that included journaling opportunities, as well as writing a love letter dedicated to you from you detailing your magnificence as only you can.
As we chatted over drinks and self-love activities, we realized just how necessary self-love really is. It is essential for us to take self-love time in order to find happiness in our lives. We declare our love for anything and everything else; we display publicly our devotion towards our religion, spouses, and even employers as we head to work each day branded with our companies. However, with all that declaration we still have a difficult time declaring our love for ourselves. We created this event so that anyone passing by would be able to stop in and participate in a few loving gestures for yourself, even if the participation was only for a few minutes. However, once you start loving on yourself it becomes challenging to pause that admiration, and we learned that more opportunities to let self-love shine is needed for all. We will definitely be hosting more of these events so stayed tuned for how you can take advantage of some self-love time, and learn a few activities to continue loving on yourself each day.
