Holy cow!  The self-acceptance Twitter Party blew my mind.  Seriously. what a thoughtful, compassionate, authentic group of people gathered together in one spot.  In 75 minutes, we had 328 tweets.  If you missed it, if you were there and want more, I thought I’d compile some of the great insights shared here for all of us to ponder.  Question number one was what does self-acceptance mean to you and below you’ll see the answers listed by Twitter name.  What does self-acceptance mean to you?  What do these answers provoke in you? Let’s keep the conversation going!

    Thank you so much for hosting this chat! It was a fantastic hour to spend talking about radical self acceptance and meeting new friends along the way!

  4. JL @ Stop Chasing Skinny

    It was a great Twitter party! I was so happy to “meet” you and the other phenomenal women. This really resonated with me: “@PinkCrowStudio being as kind, tolerant and forgiving to myself as I am to other people” I feel like I take great care to be compassionate to people (and animals!) but am not sure how often I take that same care to be compassionate to ME. Much to consider!

    Wow – Rosie! Seems like a great conversation to have been a part of, sorry that I missed it. The one that resonated the most with me was “self acceptance means finding joy in your own company, even when you’re not so fun to be around.” Thanks for sharing with us non-Twitter folks.
