Madly in Love with Me!!

No, I'm not being egotistical! I'm joining the movement at Madly in Love with Me! The whole concept of this website is "to reclaim self-love for every woman and girl on this planet, so that she may know what it is to be deeply loved, starting with the love she has for herself."

Did you know that 4 out of 5 girls will think about dieting before the fourth grade? Or that 1 in 3 women will be sexually abused? How about that 1 in 3 women will be in an abusive relationship before the age of 20 (and 80% will return to the relationship)? Did you know that 80% of women are so exhausted that they are headed for extreme adrenal gland fatigue (I actually read about this in Glamour or something a while ago)? Or how about that women surveyed today are no happier than woman surveyed in 1970, even though they have more equality, self-esteem and freedom.

I can't remember how I found this website, but it's really great! Created by the woman who wrote Choosing ME Before WE, the Every Woman's Guide to Life and Love Today (which I haven't read), this website dares women to fall in love with themselves! Just perfect for Valentine's Day, right? While I won't get to attend Madly in Love with Me Day on February 13, I still want to work hard to keep the vows in the Madly in Love with Me manifesta. So I made a scrapbook layout about it!

Just some of the vows in the manifesta are "to know my truest self, deeply", "make my happiness a priority", and "celebrate me". Self-love is not a luxury! Check out this website and start loving yourself today, too!
