Last month we had a lot of fun in the SoulSisterhood sussing out how we feel about different aspects of our lives. Self love is not just about loving yourself. It’s about tending to emotional wounds, being your own advocate, and knowing where in your life you need to do The Work. I came up with 31 prompts to help you take a good look at where you need to put a little more love in your life. If you want more writing prompts, check out Journey Through Journaling!
