Want to feel great about yourself?

Take the Celebrate You! Challenge

Catch yourself being awesome … for 31 days in row!

Join me on a 31-day journey of celebrating what is awesome about every one of us so that you can overcome self-doubt and fear.

The more you put into this journey, the more you’ll get out.

In addition to the daily Celebrate You! posts, there are informative articles about overcoming self-doubt and fear throughout the month, to help you dive deeper and get more out of this challenge.

I invite you to at least do the daily exercises and if you are brave and want to really pump up your experience, share them in the Author Switch Club Facebook group.

How To Participate:

I

1. Join the Facebook Group

I

2. Come back to this page each day

Come back to this page each day for that day’s journaling post. It will include a thought or exercise which you can ponder, write down your thoughts and experiences and, if you are brave, share your thoughts in the group.

I

3. Really want to Celebrate You?

Each day (or as often as you can), take a picture of:

  • Yourself expressing your unique awesome, or
  • Something representative of what you are celebrating
  • … and share it in the group.

I also invite you to share that Selfie post on your timeline, using the hashtag #CelebrateYou. Tag me so that I can celebrate you, too!
