I created a fun challenge for you this week!  I have actually used it before, but I wanted to bring it back because it is so fun.  I thought it would be awesome to spell your favorite word that encourages you.  Here are some examples that I was thinking of, CHAMPION, EMPOWER, CONFIDENCE, SELF-WORTH, BEAUTIFUL, SELF-LOVE, SELF-ACCEPTANCE, STRONG, POWERFUL and so many, many more.  It is completely up to you and you can change it up every day if you want to.  Have so much fun!

Fan blades 2. Baseboards 3. Oven & Microwave 4. Window sills 5. Grout Just typing it all out makes me...
