99 Ways To Love Yourself A Little Better


I used to think humility as a virtue meant putting myself last. I downplayed every accomplishment, every talent, and everything that made me uniquely me. Humility meant becoming exceptionally unremarkable. It meant I needed to dislike myself.

But, surprise, that felt awful. As I got older and aged into myself, I realized that it’s okay to have a healthy sense of self-worth. In fact, the greater love I have for myself, the easier it is for me to maintain healthy habits that allow me to better serve and support my friends, coworkers, and community.

It’s not always a steady resource, though. Self-love can ebb and flow with the seasons, or with the hours of the day. It’s so easy to go into autopilot mode that we forget this is an intentional practice—I know that I’ve gained and lost my self-love many, many times throughout the past couple of years.

Lucy pet of the week

Lucy when she’s being good; Lucilla when she’s being bad; Tooty-lou when she can’t help but let ‘er rip; and numerous other nicknames…

Lucy flourishes while snooping in the grass, playing with other doggos, and defying any learned commands.

Her floppy ears make her a forever puppy (what ‘dog’ isn’t really just a ‘pupper’?) and she is a little shadow! Although she came from a rough mid-puppy-hood, she is truly living her best life!

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
