💗30 Days of Self Love 💗

This is a 30 day challenge meant to help people improve their self-esteem and learn to love and appreciate themselves a little bit more! You can start this challenge whenever you want, completing each day in the order listed or in whatever order you prefer. If any day is too uncomfortable to complete you can feel free to skip it and come back to it later or just skip it entirely.

If you choose to do this challenge please tag your posts with #30DaySelfLoveChallenge or #30 Day Self Love Challenge so everyone else who is doing it can view all the responses!

💗 Day 01: On a scale from 1-10 (with 1 being “horrible, can’t possibly be any worse” and 10 being “wonderful, can’t possibly be any better”), how would you rate your self-esteem right now? Why would you rate it that way?

💗 Day 02: List out at least 5 accomplishments or achievements you’ve made that you are proud of. These can be small or large, recent or made further back.

💗 Day 03: List out at least 5 non-physical things you like about yourself. These can be personality traits, talents, things you’ve done for other people, etc.

💗 Day 04: List out at least 5 physical things you like about yourself.

💗 Day 05: People are often kinder to others than they are to themselves, so imagine yourself from the perspective of a loved one. If you were your own best friend, what would your outside impression of yourself be?

💗 Day 06: Think of how old you were when you first started struggling with your self-esteem and write a letter of encouragement to your younger self.

💗 Day 07: List out at least 5 compliments people have given you. These can be compliments from people IRL or online and they can be about anything.

💗 Day 08: List out at least 5 good things that have happened recently. These can be things that have happened to you or to someone else or even just good stories you’ve heard in the news.

💗 Day 09: When your emotions get to be too much, what are some healthy things you can do to ground you and help you calm down? List out as many as you can think of.

💗 Day 10: Imagine you have a loved one who is on a long voyage (to sea, outer space, wherever) and misses you desperately. What would they write in a letter to you? What would they miss about you? Write a love letter to yourself.

💗 Day 11: List out at least 5 quotes that inspire you or make you feel happy.

💗 Day 12: List out at least 5 songs that make you happy when you listen to them.

💗 Day 13: Imagine the perfect day. What does it look like for you? Describe the weather, where you’re at, what you’re doing, who (if anyone) you’re with, and how it all makes you feel.

💗 Day 14: Many people have a problem with comparing themselves negatively to others. Take a moment to truly acknowledge the progress you have made in life without comparing that progress to anyone else. How have you become a better person? What hobbies do you have that you’ve improved at? What other areas of your life (no matter how small) have you gotten better in? List out as many examples as you can think of.

💗 Day 15: Being positive towards others can often help people be positive about themselves, so take some time and send anonymous positive messages to at least 10 people. These can be compliments or just a “hope you have a good day!”, to people you follow or just random people in tags you track. Look at how these people react to your messages and describe how it makes you feel.

💗 Day 16: List out at least 5 fictional characters you admire or connect with and describe what it is you admire about them.

💗 Day 17: What is your favorite positive interest or hobby? Describe how you first got into it and what you like about it.

💗 Day 18: List out at least 5 “I will ___” statements that you can apply to your day-to-day life in order to be more positive (example: I will believe people when they compliment me, I will ignore the voice in my head that tells me to doubt myself, etc.).

💗 Day 19: List out at least 5 coping statements. Coping statements are statements you use in order to feel better about yourself/your current state (example: I’m going to be okay, My feelings are difficult but I can handle them, I will survive this situation, etc).

💗 Day 20: Go outside. Use all your senses to observe your environment and identify things around you that you like, that make you feel calm or happy. Describe what those things are, what you see/hear/feel/smell that makes you feel calm or happy.

💗 Day 21: Everyone makes mistakes. What defines people is not that they have made mistakes but that they have learned from them and made an effort to do better in the future. List out at least 1 mistake you have made (using however much or little detail as you feel comfortable with) and describe how you have learned from it and grown as a person after making it.

💗 Day 22: List out at least 5 good deeds you have done for other people. These can be small things or large ones and can be as simple as something nice you’ve done for/said to someone rather than an actual favor.

💗 Day 23: List out at least 5 things that make you laugh. These can be jokes, movies, youtube videos or anything else.

💗 Day 24: What are you insecure about? Divide these things into two lists: things you can change and things you can’t. Now imagine that someone else has made this list. What advice or words of support would you give them about their insecurities?

💗 Day 25: What bad habits do you have? Make a list of them sorted by the ones you think will be easiest to break to the hardest. Beside of each bad habit write out things you can do in order to improve on them or ideas for more positive things you can do as alternatives to whatever the bad habit is.

💗 Day 26: What good habits do you have? What things do you already do that are positive and healthy and how did you come to start doing them? What advice would you give to people who struggle with those things?

💗 Day 27: Imagine your ideal self, focusing mostly on non-physical traits. How would this person feel about themself? What kind of person are they? What kind of friend are they to the people they care about? How is this ideal self different from you as you are now? List out things you can do in order to be more like them.

💗 Day 28: List out at least 5 short-term goals (things you want to do this week/this month/this year) and at least 5 long-term goals (things you want to do in the next 5+ years).

💗 Day 29: List out at least 5 reasons to stay alive.

💗 Day 30: Now that the challenge is over, rate your self-esteem again. On a scale from 1 to 10 (with 1 being “horrible, can’t possibly be any worse” and 10 being “wonderful, can’t possibly be any better”), where is your self-esteem at now? Why would you rate it that way? List out the things you have learned about yourself from doing this challenge and how you can continue to improve your self-esteem from here on out.

lastly, Elysian,,,, yall this is a Beauty & The Beast au. that’s all. read it. louis and harry slow dance to the piano playing itself. if i remember correctly liam and niall are the lil candle and teapot i forgot their names in the movie lmao oh well. zayn is gaston. louis is french (ofc he is it’s a B&B au what else did u expect).

5.    What are your three favourite oneshots?

oooooh my god fjjklasfgh

To The Ends Of The Earth ok so. it’s a canon compliant au and it’s exes to lovers and uhhhh louis goes to visit harrys cabin in Idaho and YALL it’s 55k of angst and fluff and smut in front the fire and reconciliation and wow 

NEXT IS All Along, My Heart Was Beating For You  so this fic is a Jurassic Park au :’). louis is a velociraptor trainer or whatever and harry is a doctor for the baby dinos :(((

then there’s put the stars in our eyes and oh my god .. 1) it’s a farm au 2) it’s a mail order husband au bc louis needs to be married in order to inherit the farm and he’s not so he “”orders”” harry and harry is really scared at first but IT WORKS OUT and the ending makes me cry thanks

9.    What is the funniest sentence you have ever read in a fic?

“I fuck old men for a living. Of course I golf.”  (i couldnt think of anymore so u kno)

10.  How about the one sentence that broke your heart?

lmao this isnt a sentence it’s a whole few paragraphs that had me in tears 

Looking back, Louis can’t pinpoint where or when it started. In his memory, it happened quickly. One day Harry was enjoying a cup of tea with him and Eleanor. The next day, he couldn’t stand to be in the same room as them, making excuses for why he couldn’t turn up to a particular party or event. And none of them were ever fun when Harry wasn’t there.

And that was the beginning of the end, of the real arguments and the rage. Jealousy, irrational jealousy. Louis didn’t want her. Of course not. He told Harry so. But that wasn’t really the problem.

Harry grew to hate everything. He hated the lies. He hated hiding. He hated Eleanor. He hated himself. He hated Louis. 

Their very last argument crept up on them like a snake in the grass.

11.  Re: other pairings; which do you like and to get into it what should I read?

i……..don’t really read other pairings 

12.  Is there a prompt you have?

i have 8000 prompts but lately i’ve been thinking of this one and it’s got me shook tbh. so it’s the 1920s and harrys dad is a fisherman and he goes with him one time and sees louis (a mermaid) and is like :00000 and they grow up together ::(( like harry sneaks off to talk to him and wow :(( and when harry finds out he’s [whatever sexuality i decide to give him] louis is the first person he tells and then he develops a crush on him!!!!! and yeah there’s gonna be fluff and angst and smut and magic and a happy ending :(( im crying 

anyways this was really long sorry!! i tag @domestic-harry @hrrytomlinson @aquitecontentbum @harrymodes @tvshows-addict !!! <3

90 Day fitblr Challenge: Summer of Fitness Day 1

Hello my lovelies!  I’ve felt like the fitblr community is a bit lackluster lately, and my feed is dead so I’ve decided to do a 90 day challenge, which I’m calling Summer of Fitness (I will be following that hashtag closely) .  

How will it work? 

I’m going to start a post everyday (around 7pm eastern standard time) in the hopes that all of you will comment or reblog with all of the healthy things you did that day.  Your comment could be:

a workout, a healthy meal you made, a picture of new workout gear, a question you have for your fellow fitblrs, a big stride in your mental health, etc. etc. 

The overall goal of the challenge is to help the fitblr community and myself stay motivated and to get us more connected to one another. If you have a new blog this would be a great way to get connected to other bloggers in the fitness arena!

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, DAY FREAKING ONE OF SUMMER OF FITNESS: 

I worked out! (50 squats at 135, 50 reps of bench press, and 50 reps of shoulder press) AND I hopped on the stair master for 30 minutes!

What did you guys do today? 

I don’t want to cover my tracks
And I don’t want you or anyone trying to cover them for me
I want to see every step I’ve taken
Every print I’ve made
Since first stepping foot on this path
That has led me to where I am now
Because now is spectacular
And I am wondrous.
—  d.c.

Weekly Art Challenge #212 (February 22nd – March 1st) – Draw your Workspace


Whether you enjoy doodling at school or have a pimped out art studio at home – we all have our favourite place to draw. It’s where our markers are, where the lighting is good, where our mom can’t see the smut we’re drawing as soon as she walks into the room. Personally, I like to sit on my bed with my tablet on my lap. What about you?


What does your designated art area look like? What would it look like if you improved on it?


What kind of materials do you keep handy? How is the lighting? Do you have a mirror to help draw gestures? Maybe there’s something you do not have there that you definitely need. Add those things, too! Show other artists how you work, which materials and gadgets you’re using. Look at the other submissions! Perharps there’s something there you would like to try out too?


Things to note:

- no fanart for this week, please! (but if you’re being sneaky about it, you’re welcome to reference your favourite work of fiction ;))

- As always, the submission limit is two ~


[The deadline for this challenge will be March 1st at 10PM GMT/ 5PM EST]


For more information about the group and its submissions, please read the FAQ! If you have a question you do not see mentioned there, please don’t hesitate to ask.


Make sure to submit your piece using the ->submission<- page, and tag it for the appropriate challenge! If you don’t complete in time for the deadline, still post it to your Tumblr and tag it as ‘WAC’ and 'wac challenges’! We hope you’ll have fun and improve as an artist during this challenge <3
