Happy New Year! 

If you’re familiar with the online Self Love Challenges this one is a little different.

Last January, I offered my first 21 day Self Love Challenge. This then, due to the demand and your engagement naturally evolved and there became many self love challenges throughout of 2018.

Thank you all for participating and making the Self Love Challenges so meaningful in your daily lives. 

Some of your comments of how the challenges helped:

‘To honour myself and ignite my inner sparkle’ 

‘It gave me strength to allow myself to think of me’

‘Allowing myself to be all that I can be’

‘To put distance between myself and others who keep using me’

‘I really got to know me and love me more’

‘I realised I was expecting my partner to make me happy, but I need to make myself happy first’

VOTE

This year I asked YOU what you wanted; a 21 day challenge, or a weekly challenge?

This was a close vote – it stayed at 50/50 for while but in the end the majority asked for a weekly challenge.

It was so close though, so after some contemplation (and a way of kinda combining both!), a weekly challenge with regular check-ins has been decided upon – and it actually ends up being a 6 week challenge, so it is longer than previous ones. 

Are you up this?

Let’s begin

Week 1 – Self Love Resolution –  Setting your intention for 2019

364 days to go…

It’s the second day of the year, which means there are 364 days left in 2o19. 

This weeks challenge asks you to think about setting your Self Love Resolutions for these remaining days!

Get a pen and paper, or do it electronically and write; 

In 2019, I will love myself more by ………(fill the gaps)……….

You may already be aware of what your Self Love Resolutions are, as you may have already reflected on these, however if you don’t – worry not! I will help you out.

Self Love Resolutions might feel a bit strange to set as they are about working on yourself from the inside, therefore these are not as tangible as the usual New Years Resolutions such as losing weight, giving up a ‘bad habit’, saving money, buying a car etc. 

Self Love Resolutions

Have a read of the following resolutions and see if any of those jump out at you. 

  • In 2019, I will love myself more by taking time out for ME on a regular basis, to do something nice for ME. 
  • In 2019, I will form the habit to be grateful for what I HAVE in my life and not worry about what I have not got
  • In 2o19, I will practice being in the present moment and become more and more ‘mindful’ each day
  • In 2019, I will give myself permission to face difficult emotions, I will no longer avoid them
  • In 2019 I will show myself love by being kind to myself on a regular basis
  • In 2019 I will make time to do the things that make me feel happy and lift my spirit
  • In 2019 I will spend more time with people who nourish my soul and help me to grow
  • In  2019 I will take more care of my body 

Do any of these resonate with you?

These are examples that may fit for you, otherwise they aim to inspire you to think about your own personal resolutions for this year. 

So over the next few days, really have a think about, what intention you want to set this year around developing your self love. 

You might find Decembers Self Love Blog a helpful read.

It is important to have a clear mindset as to what you really want to manifest. The more whole heartedly you set your intention the more likely you will manifest this into your life.

Week 1 – Check in

So it’s the 5th January today, and before next week’s challenge is posted tomorrow, shall we just have a little check in? 

  • Have you chosen your Self Love Resolutions? Have you just ‘thought’ of them or have you also written them down? There is power in writing our intentions down, so if you have not done this yet, then do! There is also power in verbalising your intentions, so SAY THEM OUT LOUD! This affirms them – as a part of you ‘speaks’ your intention a part of you ‘hears’ your intention and a part of  you ‘believes’ your intention. It’s no longer in your head, just as a passing thought! So when you think, speak and listen to your intentions, you mean business!  
  • How serious and committed are you to achieving your Self Love Resolution(s)?  How much percent? 50-50? 60-40? 80-20? 0r 100%? This will determine your  outcome. Your commitment to yourself will give you the results you want and need in your life. 
  • Now think/say out loud/ or write ……‘If I don’t achieve my Self Love Resolutions this year, then this will make me feel……..(Fill in the blanks)……..’ For example if I did not meet my Self Love Resolutions and did not commit to them, at the end of the year I will not be feeling good about myself, that is for sure! I might feel as if I have let myself down and I would question where in the year did I stop focusing on me? for what? So have a think. How might you feel, if you did not meet your Self Love Resolutions? YOU CAN DO IT!!! Don’t let yourself down! 
  • Now think/say out loud/or write ……‘If I DO achieve my Self Love Resolutions this year, then this will make me feel……..(Fill in the blanks)……..’ So, for me I will feel positive, and energised with a greater sense of self value. I will feel proud that despite the challenges 2019 may have bought me, I still managed to develop my self love, even if at times this was hard. Let’s face it, the journey to Self Love can at times be very difficult – there is no doubt about that! So have a think, how might you feel if you achieved your Self Love Resolutions?

Hold these thoughts and feelings in mind throughout this challenge!!!!

Week 2  -Self Love Barriers – Overcoming the things that stop you from loving yourself  

The first step towards prioritising your own self care in order to grow your own self love is to figure out what gets in the way. 

Self Care; how we look after ourselves, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually determines how much we value ourselves and therefore how much we love ourselves. So in simplistic terms; 

Self care can lead to high self regard which increases your Self Love. This can lead to joy, happiness, healthy relationships, inner peace, feeling alive, good health, passion, creativity and so much more – you want to feel this right? On the contrary; 

A lack of self care leads to a lower sense of self worth which causes lower levels of Self Love. This can lead to a general dissatisfaction in many aspects of life. It can cause stress, anxiety, depressive symptoms, resentment and an overall feeling of unhappiness; just ‘existing’ but not really ‘living’ life – You don’t want to feel this right?

Many things can get in the way of self care and self love. This weeks challenge is for you to figure out what gets in your way and how you are going to overcome this. 

Are you busy, overworked, too many things to do, not enough time for you? Do you ‘put off’ your self care until tomorrow, then again until tomorrow, never really getting round to that soak in the bath, or that book you have been meaning to read, or that walk in the park?

People lead busy lives, or sometimes people have too much time on their hands, which can be equally difficult when it comes to finding motivation. We all have energy. We chose how to use it, or waste it. 

This weeks challenge, can be done in an order that you feel is right for you. You can pick the day that mostly resonates with you each day. It does not have to be completed in the order below. 

Monday 7th January 

Today write down all your barriers currently in your way, stopping you from doing the things in your life that will make you feel more love towards yourself. Reflect on any barriers you came across in 2018.  These may include; 

  • Not enough time 
  • Feeling guilty and selfish for taking time out
  • Too busy and tired 
  • Not knowing what to do
  • Other expectations of you
  • Being so use to doing things for others
  • Lack of motivation, can’t be bothered 
  • Being in a comfort zone
  • Fear – afraid to make change
  • Self doubt
  • Self worth  – feeling you don’t deserve self care
  • Culture / Society 
  • Judgement of others 

Today, identify your barriers. 

Then, write down all the things you think you need to do to overcome those barrier(s). It won’t be possible in the month of January to overcome all these barriers as some may be more deeper rooted, which can obviously take time -perhaps months or even the whole year to really master them! However NOW is the time to sow those seeds in your mind and heart… and then keep watering them throughout the year…… watch them grow!  

Some barriers, which are more practical such as time management and are based around specific activities can be achieved much sooner. 

Tuesday 8th January 

Today make a list of all the things that mean self care to you, such as;

  • Having a soak in the bath
  • Meditation 
  • Listening to relaxing music
  • Going for a walk
  • Meeting a friend who lifts your spirit
  • Colouring, doodling, drawing 
  • Reading a book
  • Exercise 
  • Journalling/writing 
  • Playing an instrument 
  • Putting candles on and relaxing
  • Booking a treatment

Pick three from your list and schedule these in for next month -Yes we are already preparing for February. Planning and preparing is key when it comes to self care. At the very least put in your calendar for February ‘Self Care – tbc!’ threes times. Find some free time, whether it be one our, half a day or a whole day. Figure out what you will be doing nearer the time, for now just save the dates! 

So you’ve made your Self Care List, scheduled time in for February – now  Today also take up to 30 minutes to practice your self care, no matter what it is. I challenge you to take out those 30 minutes, today just for you!

Wednesday 9th January 

Today refer back to your self love barriers and choose one – hold this in mind all day today. Notice how this barrier gets in your way of day to day life (whatever you may be doing today) and experiment with things that may help you overcome this today. 

So for example:

-If your barrier is feeling tired and drained, drink some water to lift you, close your eyes for 2-3 minutes and take some deep breaths or go for a 10 minute walk to make you feel more alive. 

-If your barrier is time, try and pace yourself today, notice how by ‘slowing down’ just by a few seconds does not make the world end. Do one thing at a time, rather than multi-tasking. Where in your calendar can you add a break today? Eat your lunch away from your desk or work space.  

-If your barrier is self doubt or low self worth, repeat a mantra or a positive quote in your head. Find one that resonates with you for today. Write it on a post it note and stick it somewhere you will see it. Some examples; 

I can do this. l AM doing it. I so have got this!

Just for today I will not worry. 

I am beginning to love myself today, moment by moment. 

I deserve to feel happiness.

I am good enough.

You can combine these with breathing techniques, for example, Take a deep breath in and as you do this say in your mind ‘ I breathe in Self Love’. Then Breathe out and say ‘I let go of all Self Doubt’. Repeat this at least three times. Do this with your chosen quote or Mantra. 

You have got this! As you become more aware of what holds you back on a day to day basis, this will empower you to make changes. Self awareness is power!

Thursday 10th January 

Today choose something from your Self Care list to do for 30 minutes again, but this time try something different to what you may normally do. Maybe treat yourself to a nice treat? You deserve it.

Friday 11th January 

Start your day by saying; 

‘I am bigger than my self love barriers. I am deserving of so much self care. I am learning to overcome my self love barriers a little bit more each day.’

Repeat this three times during the day. Maybe afternoon, early evening and before you go to sleep. 

The weekend!

Practice self care over the weekend! You may already plans, or maybe you don’t – you could be working. Either way don’t forget about your self care at weekends. Where during this weekend will you find time to add in your self care?

Also try this – Look in the mirror at yourself. Weird? ‘Mirror Work’ is very powerful and something Louise Hay, wrote about in her recent books. It is so powerful – coming face to face with yourself. You may not be able to do this exercise. Don’t worry if you can’t. Just try the following and stop at the point that feels uncomfortable – but try to get past your comfort zone in the first instance.  

Look in the mirror at yourself. Look into your eyes in the mirror for 30 seconds. Feel that connection with yourself. Then say, ‘I love you…….. I really love you………and I am going to take care of you today’. 

Notice how this felt and make a note of it. Don’t worry if you found this hard. It can be difficult to connect to your inner self in such a way. Your inner child. Your soul. YOU. Do this Saturday and Sunday. 

Have a great week and all the best with this weeks challenge. Feel free to post comments below. 

I heard somewhere recently that:  

Micro Changes make Macro Transformations. 

You have took that first step!

Fairy steps, baby steps, one foot in front of the other. Each day is a new day.

Keep going πŸ™‚ 

Week 3 – ‘Love my body‘ – Physical health 

This week we are working on the body part of our overall well being; Mind, BODY and Soul. 

All three are interconnected. One impacts another. To be fully aligned and in good health, all three aspects need to be in balance with each other. Our emotions affect our body. Aches, pains and ailments manifest in our body as a result of psychological or emotional causes. Have you noticed if you are stressed or anxious and how this may impact on your appetite, tension in your body, headaches, sleep pattern? 

This weeks challenge asks you to make a closer connection to your body! Are you up for this?

Monday 14th January  

Today, connect with your breath. Feel you breath. Notice your breath. Be your breath. Use your breath. 

We breathe all the time don’t we? Well we would not be here without it. How often do you actually stop and notice your breath?

Today notice your breath throughout the day – Just become aware of your breath. Hear it, feel it going in through your nostril and out your mouth – does it feel cold or warm? Are you breathing slow, or fast? Are you breathing into your lungs or your stomach?

If you feel stressed at any point of the day, then use your breath to help calm you. Take a deep breath in through your nose, all the way into your stomach and then take a deeper and longer breath out of your mouth. Repeat at least three times. Notice your body relax. Notice your mind becoming more peaceful. 

So, for today connect with your breath!

Tuesday 15th January

Today, be aware of what you put in your body. Think twice before you decide what to eat or drink -Ask yourself, do I want this, or do I need it? What is the difference? Drink more water than you usually would as this flushes toxins out of your system, not just physical ones, but emotional ones too. It clears stagnated energy giving you more life and a natural boost!

Make healthy choices today with food and drink. Coffee or peppermint tea? Chocolate or fruit? 

Show your body love by putting things in there that are good for it

Wednesday 16th January

Start your day with a 5 minute body scan. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Start by taking three deep breaths in and out, to centre yourself. Then visually scan your body. With your eyes closed imagine your attention moving around the different parts of your body. Start on your head, forehead, cheeks, back of your neck, shoulders….. (work your way down). 

You are scanning for areas that feel unconformable, sore, painful etc. These aches and pains, that may well live with you daily but you seldom notice, yet they remain as something you carry with you.

Today, by acknowledging these you are honouring them – saying hello! Once we acknowledge something, we can deal with it. 

So when you come across an ache or a pain, stop there for a few moments and visualise white light surrounding  that part of your body. Bright, shinning white light! Give the pain permission to go. Then continue with your body scan. 

This is a good way to start your day and check in with your body. It is a good way to connect to your body, rather than spending a whole day in your mind and not even realising you are also in a body…….. not just your mind!

Thursday 17th January

Experiment with colour! Choose your clothes wisely today! Wear something different? What colour are you drawn to? What colour are you feeling today? Use your body to express outwardly today. How is your exterior going to represent your interior? Style up today! 

Friday 18th January 

Do 30 minutes of exercise today. Walking, jogging, swimming, dancing, yoga – whatever tickles our fancy, do it!! Use your exercise to shake everything off! 

The weekend! Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th

Well done you made it! Did you do all of this weeks challenge? Did you do some days and skip others?

The challenge for this weekend is look over this weeks challenge and repeat 2 days again, of your choice. These can be the days you skipped, in which case you won’t be repeating but doing them for the first time. Was there a day you struggled with, or found that you couldn’t do it – well try that day again. 

Then I would like to reflect on how this weeks challenge has made a difference to you. Write down at least three differences you have noticed in yourself, in or towards you body and around how you feel. 

 

Week 4 – ‘Love my mind’ – Mental and emotional health

This weeks challenge is all around your mental and emotional health. Loving your mind. Taming your ego. 

The mind can be one of the hardest aspects of ourselves to get a real healthy grasp of. Our mind can control us to our own detriment. Our mind remembers and holds onto past experiences in which we may have experienced hurt so in it’s defence it causes barriers within us to stop us from feeling hurt again -however this can serve as a double edged sword as the mind can then stop us from really living our lives to our hearts true desire.

Our mind can make us live out of fear and doubt.

This weeks challenge is to pay a little more attention to what is going on in your mind. Each day will offer an affirmation for you to do at the start of your day (Credit to Louise Hay). Take a few deep breaths, relax into your body and repeat the affirmation at least three times in the morning – then you can repeat it during the day or the evening at your choice for an extra boost! 

Monday 21st January 

Affirmation of the day: I am in harmony with all that surrounds me. I am at peace  

Throughout your day today, become the observer of what is going on around you and also inside you. Notice when things, people and situations cause you any disharmony or discomfort – this may be at home, work, or just when you are out and about doing daily tasks.

Whenever you feel discomfort, notice this feeling, capture it – ‘Pause’, acknowledge it, don’t react to it and repeat the affirmation above to ease out of the disharmony… Let it go! You don’t need it! 

Tuesday 22nd January 

Affirmation of the day: I Have the power to make change. I open myself to all good. 

Make a list of the changes you want to see in your life! Think about the rest of 2019. What changes do you want to see unfold? Today, realise the things that you really want to change and own how you have been holding yourself back. How has your mind got in the way?

Write the list as if you are already making the changes…

As of today, I create more time in my life to do the things that are good for me. 

As of today, I let go of those people and situations that hold me back from being me

As of today, I make healthier choices for my physical well being

As of today, I make a conscious decision to spend more valuable time with my loved ones  

Wednesday 23rd January 

Affirmation of the day: I forgive all my past experiences. I forgive myself for any wrongdoings. 

Our minds can hold onto stuff from the past, not allowing us to move on and live freely in the here and now.

Today see your past experiences and people that have been in your life as ‘teachers’ – think about how you grew from those experiences. What lessons did you learn? 

This can be a very powerful and shifting affirmation to do so make sure you take good care of yourself. Do this when you feel comfortable and ready.

If you want to go further than the affirmation, then write it down:

I forgive (add name) for ……….

I forgive myself for ………

Thursday 24th  January 

Affirmation of the day: I am safe and secure in my world. I am my own unique self. 

Our minds can prevent us from acknowledging our positive qualities. It can be quicker to search for our faults and fears and this can cause a feeling of insecurity.     

Today think about at least three things that you like about yourself and that make you unique – the things that make you, YOU?

Be you! You are you! You can’t be anyone else. Make friends with your uniqueness today. 

Friday 25th January 

Affirmation of the day: Everything I need comes to me in the perfect time. 

Our minds can often make us think and believe that we do not have enough. We may feel we need more. The rat race and busy lifestyles we face, can cause pressure and we miss out on pleasure!  We do not have enough syndrome. This can cause a sense of dissatisfaction in life and even in relationships.  

Today, trust that you have all that you need also trust that what you receive arrives at the right time.

Make a list of all the things you are grateful for in your life. 

Saturday 26th January 

Affirmation of the day: This present experience is a stepping stone to a new awareness.

Reflect on this week and write down what new awareness of yourself you have gained insight into? Have you learnt something new about how your mind gets in the way of your self love?  

Sunday 27th January 

Affirmation of the day: As I learn to love myself, I become powerful. 

Yes, the more you love and value yourself, the more powerful you feel from within – this is ‘power’ used in the right way, it is the power that ‘enables’ you, ’empowers’ you, ‘liberates’ you and ‘encourages’ you. How has your Self Love enabled you to feel more powerful? 

Week 5 – ‘Love my soul‘ – Spiritual health 

I went to a BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) Networking Meeting this weekend as part of the ‘Counselling with Spirit’ Division. We explored the concept of ‘Soul Wounds’, inspired by Rumi’s work, referring to his quote; 

β€œDon’t turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That’s where the light enters you.”

We explored the concept of trauma and the impact of this on our ‘soul’ (which I will save for another blog!). I felt this concept fit nicely into this week’s challenge; ‘Love My Soul’. 

So, for us to be in healthy alignment, we need overall good balance, in mind, body and soul. I believe we need to acknowledge the soul part of ourselves. So how do you take care of your soul? How can you learn to value and love your soul?

You can do this week’s challenge in any order – just go for the day that appeals to you. Each day will bring a ‘Soul Quote’ for you to ponder on πŸ™‚ Enjoy! 

Monday 28th January 

β€œFood for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.” – Dorothy Day

 Define Self Love in relation to the Soul. What is this? If you were to explain it to someone what would you say? 

Self Love, feeds the soul, so before you feed your soul, you need to figure out what your soul is craving. 

What does your soul want? Write it out…see what emerges! Is your soul craving passion, love, fun, rest, peace, joy?

Today tune in to your soul, and explore what it wants? You can even close your eyes, and ask ‘Soul, what do you crave?’ See what thoughts, images, feelings arise. 

Tuesday 29th January 

“Your own soul is nourished when you are kind; it is destroyed when you are cruel”  –King Solomon

Nourish your soul today! (Get into the habit of nourishing your soul everyday)

If you struggle with knowing how to do this then begin a list of ideas, some of these may overlap with ‘physical’ and ‘mental/emotional’ Self Love as well as ‘Soul’ Self love (extra bonus!), for example, yoga, walking in nature, expressing through art, writing, soak in the bath using essential oils or Himalayan salts etc.   

Wednesday 30th January 

“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about about yourself to make room for it in your life.” Jean Shinoda Bolen

Commit to bringing joy to your soul – make it part of your life. Spend some time today thinking and planning how you intend to regularly take care of your soul.

What feels like a chore or pressure in your life? Do you need it? Are you holding onto things you, or your soul don’t need to? Let these go. 

Focus on joy!

Spend 30 minutes, doing something joyful today. 

Thursday 31st January 

“Physical clutter is psychic clutter”- Kyle Gray

De-clutter! Clear your environment. Do you have clutter in your bedroom, or in the spaces where you relax? Get rid of these, let them go…. throw them away or donate them to charity. 

Spend an hour de-cluttering today, start in your bedroom. 

Friday 1st February 

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” – Joseph Campbell

Create your sacred space today! I have an alter with candles, crystals, incense etc. You might have a reading corner, or something different that you associate to relaxation and tranquillity.  

Creating a physical environment like this designates a space for your ‘soul care’. You will naturally associate it to relaxing thoughts and feelings. As soon as you enter this space you may feel your stresses disappear. 

Saturday 2nd February

What have you enjoyed most about this weeks challenge? How has it made a difference to how you feel from within this week?

Today, think about all the benefits of connecting to your soul. 

Why is taking care of your spiritual health now important to you? 

Sunday 3rd February 

Today, do whatever feels right for the soul. The choice is yours. Maybe you can repeat something from this week. Is there anything you would like to revisit? 

 

Week 6 –  January 2019 Self Love challenge recap and review

Welcome to week 6 where we will be reviewing the last five weeks of the Self Love Challenge. 

This week is Children’s Mental Week – and the theme has synchronised with the Self Love Challenge. Being Healthy Inside and Out. ‘When we think about healthy living, we tend to focus on looking after our bodies – our physical wellbeing – through food, being active and getting enough sleep However, in order to be healthy overall, it’s important that we look after our minds – our mental wellbeing – too. Our bodies and minds are actually very closely linked, so things that we do to improve our physical wellbeing can help our mental wellbeing as well. When we take steps to be Healthy: Inside and Out, it helps us to feel better in ourselves, focus on what we want to do and deal with difficult times.’ (Place2Be) 

So if you have children, nieces, nephews – Get them involved in Children’s Mental Health Week! 

Monday 4th February 

Some food for thought today. In order to consolidate change, reflection is important!

What Self Love Resolutions did you make five weeks ago? How did you work towards them in January?

Why not add a ‘Self Love Resolution Check in’ to your diary every two to three months, just to make sure you keep on track. Time can fly by, so these check in’s will ensure you don’t let your goals pass you by!

Did this challenge help you to identify which area you need to increase your self love and Self Care? Was it in relation to your physical health? Perhaps it was your emotional well-being? Whichever it is, how committed are you now towards improving that area of your life? 

Reflect on your Self Love Barriers – How are you going to continue to tame these? Whether it be that inner critique, time, money, other’s expectations, fear etc – How do you plan to keep these at bay? Was there something different you did during this challenge that helped you to tackle a barrier?

Use today to reflect on the above.  Write your thoughts if you want! 

Tuesday 5th February

Which affirmation was THE affirmation for you on week 4? Scroll up to have another look. Affirmations when used regularly are really helpful in many ways.  

I had some challenging situations to deal with this month that were totally out of my control, but that I had to deal with, so the affirmation that helped me was; I am in harmony with all that surrounds me. I am at peace. This helped me detach from the chaos around me and connect to the peace within. I therefore was able to deal with these challenges in a much calmer way and saw some positive results.   

What was your affirmation and how did it help you?

Which affirmation are you taking into February with you?

Repeat your affirmations daily. Upon rising and before sleeping. Put a post it note to remind you on your mirror, write a note in your diary, save the affirmation  on your screen saver….

Wednesday 6th February 

You might be someone who regularly looks after their ‘soul’, through meditation, being in nature, yoga, energy healing etc – or you might be someone to whom this concept is quite new, so bearing this mind how did you find week 5?

What was it like to think about ways to connect with your soul, or to nourish this aspect of yourself? Did any of your barriers creep in? What are you taking away from this week?

I am someone who regularly takes time out for my soul (it’s the physical well being that I have been working on!). Taking time out for the soul is so precious to me and now it is a ‘norm’ – but this has took some work, commitment and diminishing my own barriers. So if you struggled with this week, then remember baby steps!

Take a short bit of time out on a weekly basis. Your connection to yourself will grow over time as you become more comfortable in your skin. 

Thursday 7th February 

During week 4, I asked you to experiment with colour. What was this like for you? Did you play it safe or did you go out your comfort zone?

Continue to choose your wardrobe by the colour you are feeling! Do it today. Don’t be shy. If you feel like wearing a colour brighter than usual – then go for it!

Friday 8th February

Give yourself a big pat on the back for sticking to this challenge, as much as you have been able to over the last 6 weeks! You are amazing and should feel proud for making yourself a priority.

Treat yourself to something nice  today

It’s the Weekend!!!
