No matter who you are, where you live and what you do, I don’t think anyone can have too many reminders that you matter.

That being said, as passionate and compassionate women, I think often we spend so much time boosting other people up, and not enough time making ourselves feel valued.

That’s why I wrote a list of 50 ways to show yourself you matter. Because sometimes, it’s hard to give ourselves that boost. Sometimes we lack inspiration, and sometimes it slips our mind completely. Use this list as a checklist, print it off and keep it somewhere you can see it or write you own!

Remember, you matter just as much as the people you’re looking to help and inspire. You matter just as much the causes you’re fighting for. You matter. Period.
