First 2020 Self-Love Sunday

Hello Dearest Readers,

How are you all doing now that January is finally over? Initially, I felt like it flew by due to the fact that I am moving come March and will no longer be seeing my nieces every day. But for some reason the last week just crawled by. It felt like I came to a sudden halt and I can almost feel the seatbelt marks on my own skin.

I know it has been a long time since I wrote a Self-Love Sunday note to myself, and for anyone (and everyone) out there who is struggling, you know how hard it is to see the things we love about ourselves when everything feels a bit darker than normal.

So I am going to try and make this note into a star, or a guiding light in my space which feels a bit dark at the moment.

Dear Me, 

It is 2020 and you are about to set off on a new adventure but with a past storyline. This doesn’t have to feel like a step back so let’s look at it as a momentary place to land while you figure things out. 

No matter what remember:

  • you are resourceful
  • you are worthy 
  • you will always be loved

With love, 


I have to admit that was a hard one. Wishing you all the very best this Sunday and may you find yourself as your own guiding light in the dark.


Honestly Austen

Postscript: I actually wrote a Self-Love Sunday for November but it never saved and with my technological ineptitude I was unable to rescue it from wherever it went. Ugh!
