“I am POWERFUL.”

“I am SMART”

“I am RESILIENT.”

“I am BEAUTIFUL.”

“I am CAPABLE.”

Over the past week, we’ve played self-love bingo at cafe night every day of the week. It’s the same as regular bingo, except players had to use the phrase “I am” in front of each word after calling BINGO. Not only was it fun, but it was beautiful to hear the same people who initially were embarrassed to call a bingo, gradually become more confident in the words they were saying. It was heartwarming to hear the young kids proudly yell out each declaration.

Valentine’s Day is about love, but it doesn’t have to be about loving a significant other. It can be about loving your kids, loving yourself, or the love you put out into the world. This Valentine’s Day, I challenge you to pick a word from this bingo board. Stick “I am” in front of it and say it out loud. Pick another word. Stick “You are” in front of it and say it to someone else. I challenge you to show love to yourself and to others.

Happy Valentine's Day!
