Congratulations! You’re all signed up for the “PS: I Love Me” 5 Day Self-Love Challenge.

With that one click of a button, I know something very important about you…

I know that for as often as you might default to putting everyone else in your life first and for as often as you might think you don’t have time for self-love -- right now? In this moment?

You are committed to creating a life of intention and courage. A life built on honouring yourself, your needs and awakening your most confident, radiant and empowered self.

That said, it’s probably been a while since you’ve really stretched those self-belief, self-trust, self-confidence and self-compassion muscles. Amiright?

Well, this challenge is an opportunity to work those muscles out.

And here’s what else I know about you:

→ You’re all hungry to live a life that feels on purpose instead of by default.

→ You want to make choices that feel anchored in your own truth, stand firmly behind your own decisions, pursue goals that turn you on, and revel in relationships — with yourself or with others — that support your true needs.

→ You understand that growth is not for the faint of heart, but it’s nowhere near as painful as living the life you’re living right now. If you want to take control of your life and turn it into something as spectacularly “you” as you know deep down is possible, self-love is the key.

→ You know that it’s time to trust your truth, time to trust your deep intuitive knowing that you are the right thing to prioritize, you are the right horse to bet on, and that doing so will serve not only you, but everyone else in your life.

This puts you in an incredibly unique position: while others are sitting on the sidelines wanting to change their lives, you’re actually getting onto the field, into the game and deciding to change your life.

I’m here to help you discover not just what could be, but what you truly want and believe is possible for yourself and your life when you practice self-love. Because darling, the truth is, self-love is the key to getting anything and everything you want.

When you get clear on who you are, what you want and why you’re worthy of your deepest desires, in small, ever so subtle ways, you begin to live (and love) your life more fully than you ever dreamt possible.

And that my sweet friends, will create a ripple effect that will transform your entire life.

And so, starting on February 9th, I’ll send you a lesson + challenge each day for 5 days to practice flexing your self-love muscle and transforming your relationship with the most important person in your life…YOU.

Then we’ll meet together on the International Day of Self-Love (February 13th) and cap the whole thing off with a celebration of Self-Love and the announcement of the winner of the giveaway* on February 14th!

I’m challenging you to use this challenge to PLAY FULL OUT. Make sure to post photos of yourself completing each challenge on Instagram and be sure to tag me and use the hashtag #PSILoveMe.  This will be the BEST way to connect with your fellow sisters who are also taking a courageous step towards strengthening their self-love muscles alongside you. PLUS, your participation enters you to win the prize* at the end of the challenge!

For each post that uses the hashtag #PSILoveMe and tags me @samanthaushedo, you will earn one entry max per day. I will be drawing two names at random on Valentine’s Day, February 14th at 3:00pm PST / 6:00pm EST and posting the winners to my Instagram page, so be sure to check back to see who won!

Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the 5-day PS I LOVE ME Self-Love Challenge. Woot woot!

It's time to jump! I've got you. This sisterhood's got you.

We are going to kick off this 5 day journey with something so simple, yet so often forgotten due to time, worthiness, priorities, and let’s face it, social conditioning...

Love on yourself and your life.

But in a very intentional and strategic way. Remember, I promised you that this would be actionable and not totally woo-woo. I got you girl.

I learned about this incredible tool called the Holy Trinity from a woman who I affectionately refer to as the Priestess of Desire, Mama Gena aka Regena Thomashauer. The Holy Trinity is an exercise that is composed of three parts:


  1. A brag
  2. A gratitude
  3. A desire

In my opinion, it’s like a gratitude list on steroids because it helps support our accomplishments (past), forces us to acknowledge and have an appreciation for what we currently have (present) while simultaneously challenging us to create (or manifest) what we want to show up in our lives going forward (future).


So today’s challenge, if you choose to accept it (and you better! 😉) is to take some time this morning, do to a Holy Trinity practice.


► Start with a BRAG -

Name something(s) about yourself that you LOVE: Do you have amazing legs? Make kick-ass brownies? Did you finally nail Eagle Pose in yoga today after weeks and weeks of trying? Write it down. And bonus points if you share it OUT LOUD with a friend or loved one!


► Then load up on some GRATITUDE - 

What are you thankful for today? What’s one thing you experienced recently that made you feel a sense of wonder or awe? What’s the best thing that's happened today so far?


► And round it out with some DESIRE - 

What is something that you really really want that you don’t currently have? Is there a great adventure that you want to experience? Think about your Bucket List items and then reach for the stars - list anything your little heart desires. The sky is the limit!


And because I anticipate that the BRAG will be the most challenging aspect of the Holy Trinity for many of you, I really want to give you guys permission to let loose here. Bragging is a fun and powerful tool, especially when things aren’t going so well or you’re feeling down. By consciously choosing to brag about the things in your life that rock on those not-so-stellar days, it’s like a love-filled espresso shot straight to the soul!


If you need help, the sheer fact that you’re here now, courageously participating in this challenge and just being glorious, radiant, YOU, is something to be proud of, and definitely brag worthy!

To recap:

Today's Challenge >>>  Complete the Holy Trinity using the tools of bragging, gratitude, and desire.

Remember >>> Post your completed challenge to instagram (either under my daily post or on your own feed) but be sure to tag me @samanthaushedo + use the hashtag #PSILoveMe to be entered to win the giveaway, connect with the sisterhood, and keep yourself accountable!

Remember, we're doing this together, and I'm here to help!
