When was the last time you took a moment to appreciate yourself? April Reign, creator of the effective #OscarsSoWhite movement took to Twitter this morning to challenge her followers to take a moment to appreciate themselves.
“If you’re like me, you’re quick to give a compliment, but you don’t do as well with receiving them. And you d*mn sure don’t spend enough time complimenting yourself. Which you should. Because you’re awesome. So let’s change that today.”
I appreciate myself because I have, at nearly 49, finally begun to know my worth. #SelfAppreciationSunday
This pic was taken a week ago by @Detavio and is exactly how I want to remember my last few weeks of being 48.advertisement
Your turn. Use the hashtag! pic.twitter.com/8GXuDcuo9w

With that, she declared today #SelfAppreciationSunday and asked her followers to post a picture of themselves from the last month and share what they liked about it or talk about some of their awesomeness.
Here are some of our favorites.
I like this picture because I’m smiling. I don’t smile much in pictures. I’m almost 59, and I’ve endured so much, yet, here I am. I show up for my family and friends. Oh, and I made my own hoodie! #SelfAppreciationSunday pic.twitter.com/nTq6KkYAUY

True, I’m only in the corner of this picture with the amazing Jade Phoenix, but I appreciate myself because after a tough week, which included a rejection letter from my dream PhD program, I’m still creating, still dreaming. #SelfAppreciationSunday pic.twitter.com/M5F0jAg0Wo

#selfappreciationsunday I would not be who I am without my family supporting me and I am so grateful for everyone who pours their spirit into me so that I may be encouraged. I’m built to give back. pic.twitter.com/Kd9Xo4N4WZadvertisement
