Day 10: How can you set better boundaries in your life?

It’s really important to prioritize because you can only give so much of your energy to certain things or certain people. I can set better boundaries by walking away and drawing the line when I feel like people are disrespecting the amount of energy I’m able to give.

Day 8: Where in your life do you need to slow down & take your time?

This is a tough question for me because there are so many things in life that I feel like I need to accomplish right away. I’m a terribly impatient person. But this question reminds me that this is an unhealthy way of thinking. When it comes to my goals and dreams, I need to slow down. If I don’t take things one step at a time then I become easily overwhelmed, thus halting my progress.

Day 7: Name a thing you love about your body and your personality

Body: Bodies are harder for women because they come in such different varieties. Whereas men all have the similar bodies — some more muscular, skinnier, or fatter — but all the same. Women have unique curves in all different places. So something that I like about my body is that it is completely different than anyone else’s, and that’s not bad, it’s really great.

Personality: I like being a really passionate person and feeling things so deeply. It certainly comes with its struggles but overall I feel like this is something that I gladly signed up for, not some kind of curse I was doomed with. It makes me feel like I’m living life to the fullest.
