Day 6 Self-Worth Week: Jackie W + #Giveaway

I just want to say thank you for being here, and reading the posts, and spreading the love. In this post, there's a giveaway from a super sweet author who contacted me on twitter about helping out with Self Worth Week. She's giving away two eBooks.

S. Usher Evans is giving away one copy of her book DOUBLE LIFE and one copy of her other book EMPATH. Both are ecopies. To enter just say something nice in the comments with your emails address.

SO. SELF WORTH WEEK. I'll start you off with my playlist that I think sums up my week. I love all these songs. I hope you love them too.

There are so many things I could say right now to everyone who needs a little pick me up, but I don't think any of those words can really say it all. Does that make sense? I wish I could tell you that as we get older, words get softer and bones get sharper and hugs get tighter. And maybe they do. I'm not able to say any of that yet. I know that I hope all that is true. 

I think what really happens is whatever we're meant to become, we have the strength to become it. I think that maybe we grow shields made out of all the things and people we love that keep the harsh words from penetrating too deep. 

We sort of become modern-day, kick-ass warriors of words and wielders of weapons like swords made from all that ways we love ourselves and armor made from all the beautiful pieces that make us who we are. And we're all pretty dang magnificent. I mean, it's a proven thing that smiling has the power to actually help us be happy. The endorphins and serotonin and dopamine all send happy signals into our system. It's like a natural feel-good-inator. 

I MEAN, Y'ALL. Dancing makes us happy. I can't dance, but I love to. I like the way I feel when I'm moving, even if it's just to a beat that only I can hear. The radio in my head that's on replay of the last song I heard.

*hums some really obscure music*


I just want to say hi. You're a nice human. You have a great face. You're personality is awesome. And you are so very worth it.

Remember to say hi and comment with your email address so you enter the giveaway!

  2. Howdy Jackie ^.^ I never realized you had a blog before, then again, I usually have a problem actually talking to you. Thank you for your kind words, pick me ups are always helpful, especially when someone doesn't feel particularly good about themselves. I'd never heard of self worth week until just now when I looked up your blog. I don't read near as much as I used to, though mainly because I get too busy.

  3. Hey Jackie! I have really enjoyed talking to you and you are an amazing person! This whole week of posts have been fantastic.
