Let's talk about radical vanity for a minute...but first, did you read this blog post written by Laura Doran yet? In a nutshell, "Radical vanity, a term and a movement invented by coach and speaker Jessi Kneeland, 'is a call for backlash against the idea that a woman should give to others [more] than she gives to herself, and an acknowledgment that only when our needs are fully met can we show up fully to help others'" (Doran, 2017).

 

"It’s a call to believe in our beauty, both outer and inner. To stop apologizing for taking up space, for prioritizing self-care, for being ourselves. As Kneeland puts it, 'radical vanity is about starting a movement toward reclaiming our time and energy and attention, and spending it on ourselves first'" (Doran, 2017). 

 

WOAH. Read our full article on radical vanity here, because we're officially celebrating this mindset in a week-long self-love challenge starting THIS coming MONDAY, September 4th. And, feel free to check out more on Jessi and her self-love movement here on her Instagram. 

 

Laura Doran, who wrote Why I Need Radical Vanity...and Why You Need It Too"is a Body Back and Stroller Barre instructor at FIT4MOM Severn and also works as their Content and Event Manager. She created this #RADICALVANITYCHALLENGE and we were SO in love with it, we wanted to turn it into graphics and share it globally with all of YOU. So, we are encouraging you to participate in this week-long series of mini daily tasks to focus on self-love, gratitude, and boss babe beauty to remind you how incredible you are (in case someone hasn't told you lately...you are strong. you are worthy. you are freaking amazing!)
