The ABC's of Self-Love: X is for eXcited

Hi lovely blog crawlers!

I was hoping to share a really juicy “X is for Xrated**” post with you yesterday but it didn’t happen due to forces beyond my control…  Don’t you love when life just gets in the way?!

I’m still hoping it might go live one day in the future and surprise us all, but in the meantime, I’ve commandeered X.

Here’s hoping this lost letter completes your Treasure Hunt.

I’ll cross my fingers in the drawing for you!

X is for eXcited for many, many reasons today:


The Fierce Love Course is going LIVE tomorrow –

Wednesday the 22nd – at 9 am PST.

(cue magical dance parties and star beams and loads of fierce love invading the world.  I hope you’re ready for some deep work on falling in love with yourself, cupcake!)

And also…

  • The Treasure Hunt is happening TODAY!  Woo Hoo!  If you haven’t gotten your entry form, make sure you download one HERE.  Entries are due to katie [@] stratejoy [.] com tonight, Tuesday the February 21st, by 9 pm PST.  All emails with the correct answers will be entered in a drawing for 3 FREE Fierce Love Courses, which will be announced tomorrow morning via the newsletter!
  • The Fierce Love Course is going LIVE tomorrow (Wednesday the 22nd) at 9 am PST.  I know I already said this but it’s worth repeating!  There’s all sorts of reasons you’ll want to keep hitting refresh on your webpage as the time draws near (*hint- bonuses, and goodies, and time with me for the first people to purchase!*)
  • I’ve had amazing support in bringing this much needed Course to life and I’m incredibly grateful.  Sending a huge shout out to all of Team Stratejoy for their help in making this dream a reality!  I couldn’t have done it without my launch team of Kahea and Michelle, the amazing graphic designs of Morgan, affiliate support by Ashley, and of course, my incredible assistant and community manager, Katie. Big Love to my mastermind team of Jenny and Sean, who have been there since the beginning on our weekly calls of strategy and loads of laughter. I’m also indebted to ALL of the generous and wise women who wrote for the ABC’s of Self-Love Blog Crawl for lending their words, web presence, and loving support to this Course. And my husband, of course.  He’s got to put up with me all of the time and it’s especially taxing during launch weeks when I can’t stop yammering on about all the excitement…

And why is eXcited such an important part of self-love in the first place?  Let me share with you Rule #8 of the 12 Rules of Inner Confidence.

Let Things Light You Up.

As adults, we tend to shy on the side of underwhelm. It’s not cool to be excited about the Sting concert or new neighbors or the fact that your grocery store is finally carrying sesame butter. It’s not hip to dance around in celebration of your new client. People might laugh at us if we throw confetti and pop champagne because we’re tickled pink about launching our Fierce Love Course, knowing how many women it’s going to help…

Instead, we bottle our emotions or only share complaints because it’s so much more acceptable to be critical or sarcastic or blasé.  That’s how the “cool chicks” function after all…

Allowing yourself to go gaga for a new recipe, an amazing line in your novel, a new crush, or your brand new website feeds your childlike soul. Showing enthusiasm towards anything is a gift to you — a way to guarantee that you won’t fall into a too-cool-for-school slump of apathy.

Let things light you up! Share your passion! Proclaim your excitement! When you get thrilled about the little things in life, you’re reminding yourself that your delight is important.

And any reminder that YOU are important fuels your self-love and inner confidence.

What are you excited about today?
