What is a Love Box?
During the spring semester of my Freshman year at Morgan State University, I had (what I would refer to as) my first conscious mental speedbump. My mom decided to take off of work and come support me in my time of crisis. One of the ways she helped, was encouraging me to create a "Love Box". We went to A.C.Moore (R.I.P. to my favorite Craft Store) and got a plastic box, index cards, pens, and stickers for decorating. In this space of crisis, there wasn't much that I could remember. Little tasks were extremely hard and positive thinking was even harder.
My mom wanted to leave a tool to help when she was back home in Jersey. We wrote down: Scriptures to Read, Things to Say, Places to Go, People to Call, and Things to Do, when I was in crisis. I decided to call it my Love Box because it reminded me of how much love was keeping me safe in my darkest moments. Since then I have evolved this idea into something I want to share with others. From that, this series was born.
This is a 3-part series that reciprocates love and encouragement. We will start by focusing on Self-Love and encouragement. The smallest box is about Personal Growth—Watering our Inner Lilies so they may grow and blossom. Then we will focus on career goals and objectives. The medium box is about Professional Development—Building the Confidence to soar through the glass ceilings of our dreams. Once we build our confidence and define our support, we will close out the first installment of this series focusing on our Purpose and our Footprint. The large box is about Generational Research—Facilitating community Support by creating opportuniteas for others to better themselves.
