OAM’s Self Love Project 2012

Hit Play to Watch!

We invited ladies to participate in a “Self Love” project. We asked the ladies to take a picture of themselves holding up a sign filling in the blank “I love myself because _______.”

The goal was let other ladies know they are not alone, that at least one person has and will have/has experienced/and understand exactly where they are coming from. An insecurity or what could be looked at is a flaw was encouraged!

This is the result of our first submissions! This is an ongoing project! If you’re feeling inspired and want to share your self love, please email us your pictures at onceamonth4ladies@gmail.com, with “Self Love Project” in the subject line.

If you know of any lovely ladies who would be interested in participating please invite them along!

Thanks for the love & support,

XO

Ali, Bryce, Kyla, & Tosha

    I had one of THOSE days today… you know the kind. The days where every second person is mad at you even though they’ve never met you. But this made me smile. Really, really big. I loved it (and could relate to a few of the entrants–turning red while speaking in public being the most notable).

      Yay! Well we are happy we could provide you a little pick me up :) Come back if you’re ever feeling that way again, we’ve all been there. Today… I’m having super bloated headachy period gross feeling, an ugly day if you will! You’re “Really, really big” smile made me feel much better! hehe – Kyla

    This made me SO happy. It also made me a tad jealous…of the girl who can sleep anywhere. =]

    I love this, you guys! What a fabulous idea! I always feel disgusted with myself and am always trying to give myself a dose of self-love and confidence. The video totally made my night.

    Sweet idea. Work at a school for girls and this kind of thing would go over really well with my students. Thanks for caring and sharing :)

    Your blog looks great. But why not change your masthead to OAM? It’s much cooler.

    Awesome! Thanks for liking my post “Strength: God given or Man made”. I will be following you gals. This is great. Haven’t been through your entire site yet. Do you have anything for the single moms? Even if you don’t I will be following.

    Reblogged this on Once A Month 4 Ladies and commented:

    After discussing this with one of our contributors, we realized maybe we should share this post once again and remind you to submit your photo for our Self Love Project 2013! Share the video and keep the love coming!
