jillcloseupccJill Salahub kicked off the 2015 *The New Black* Friday celebration by making herself a Love List.

Here’s what she had to say: “I’m not so good at loving myself, so this was an important one to start with. This was just the first two pages. I only stopped when I got to 100.

It was much easier than I expected. I could have kept going and written a list of 200 things. It was interesting to note that I loved my “flaws” just as much as my strengths. It’s easier and easier to see what is lovable about me, to KNOW it because I let myself hear it when those around me tell me what they love about me.

This has been a four year process for me, learning to love myself, and the practice is really paying off. And I think if the idea of making a love list for yourself is off putting or uncomfortable, it’s probably even more important that you do it.

In 2013 Jill ran a series of self compassion interviews on her blog and compiled all of them into an amazing ebook. (I am honored and delighted to be included in this incredible resource.)  Click here to download Self Compassion Saturday.

And here’s the link to the story Jill mentions in our conversation about a teacher who offers appreciation to his students + the impact it has on all of them.
