this week's affirmation is…
i deserve self-reflection, je mérite une introspection
we made it to week 51!
honestly, i doubted if i would be able to keep this bulletin consistent all year, but here we are, with one week left, and the perfect affirmation
self-reflection is a valuable and essential practice for personal growth and development
it allows you to gain insights into your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions, helping you better understand yourself and your life
self-reflection is a continuous process, and it's okay if it evolves over time
be patient and compassionate with yourself as you explore your thoughts and feelings
the insights gained from self-reflection can lead to positive changes and a deeper understanding of yourself

i wanted to start this week with the heaviest lift
how do we self-reflect? what do we do? what are the steps? what are the obstacles?
what questions does one ask themselves when reflecting on one's self?
this blog post is a great jumping off point
next, a meditation, this one is extremely relaxing
by great meditation
it's easy to get hung up on how much farther we wish to go in life, but in this loving and peaceful 10 minute guided meditation, you'll instead take stock in just how far you've come
get ready to feel deep appreciation towards yourself and your inherent worth
next, our book recommendation
funny enough, a lot of books i recommend match this week's affirmation
soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call
it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say
there she is
untamed shows us how to be brave
as glennon insists:
the braver we are, the luckier we get
and finally, your favorite part, our movie selection
a holiday classic
“...slow seasons offer hidden opportunities for growth, self-reflection, and exploration that aren’t as easily accessible during busy seasons. The slow seasons give you a chance to get even more clear on what’s most important. If things feel really quiet right now, take a deep breath, and use this season to get prepared for the blessings that are coming your way. Because if you stay ready…”
