We officially launched the 2nd Edition of Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-Acceptance on Saturday, October 15 at Main Street Books.
It was a such a wonderful event filled with amazing women and many daughters, real talk about self-acceptance and self-compassion, the Beautiful You manifesto, great food including gorgeous cookies, book sales and signing, and a make and take activity that I want to share with you today!
Our make and take activity was creating a jar to be used for one of several different exercises in the book (it can be a self-appreciation jar, a caught you jar etc). One of the suggestions I had was to make it an Essential Questions jar where you write questions on small pieces of paper, fold them up, and then place them on your dinner table. At dinner each night, everyone draws a question and answers it. Happy loves the jar so much at our house that we often do more than one round of question answering.
I promised to share some possible questions and so here they are. Take or leave whatever best suits you (if you want to use the jar as a spontaneous reflection/ journaling prompt jar) or your family. As for creating the jars themselves, I cut out hundreds of words and images for the group to choose from for their jars. Those images were affixed with modpodge and then there was also washi tape and glitter available for pops of color and style (I strongly recommend adhering the glitter inside the jar to minimize the spread. Mod Podge totally works for glitter, too). Now, for the questions:
Hope these questions bring you and your family an even greater connection!
