In the midst of the Corona Virus battles, I woke up today, the 10th of July, remembering a declaration I had made at the start of 2020. On this random Friday morning, I remembered that I had declared 2020 a Self-Love year. Perhaps the time of the year had something to do with it. Being a December baby, I had always preferred the 2nd semester of the year ushered in the month of July. But then, I argued, the year had totally changed on all of us. How realistic was it to pursue any vision that was made pre-corona days?
I spent the day trying to talk myself out of it. The challenge, as I received it, was to undertake a 100 day journey looking at various “tools” to explore as part of expressing and experiencing self love. The real challenge was that, I would go live, on camera, chat for 15 minutes every day and share my inspirations starting on the 11th of July. Yes, the very next day. By the end of the day, I had accepted the challenge, part of me even excited. I was excited that I would have something else to focus on than just the gloom and doom that was brought by the SARS-COV-2.
