Your 2023 Challenge is here…the 30 day Good Mood Challenge.

Hey guys!

Happy new year’s eve! It is legit 3:55pm on Dec 31, 2022 and I still need to get my inbox to zero, clean the house, and check all my slack messages ahhhhhh!!! But first, your 2023 challenge!

For the past 13 years, every January we’d do some type of a fitness challenge together and I was always so hyped about going hard, transforming, burning fat, building muscle, eating super healthy – all of it! But as you’ve probably noticed, this past year, it’s been different. After my Glow Up Series this past January, I ended up not posting any long form workouts the rest of the year. Not because I planned to stop, but because I was following what felt good. And honestly, what felt good was going on a 90 Day Journey to muscle.

I was so excited to be rewriting and reclaiming my bikini bodybuilding journey (those of you who have been with me for a while know how my 2012 bikini competition wrecked my eating habits and body image). I was having such a beautiful time lifting, writing, cooking, and tracking my progress. It felt like a fun science experiment for myself! But then of course, something I had set out to do for just me, ended up being an opportunity f0r people to tear me down. Severely.

Buff gym dudes and their meat head minions decided to monetize off of my journey and get views off my content by filming degrading videos about me. I tried so hard to “not care” and “not let it bother me” – I read books and listened to so many podcasts to try to build up the hardness in my heart. But the truth is, I am who I am and I am a sensitive human who feels, and feels a lot. I cry when it hurts, I cry when I am happy, I cry when I feel deeply. But…what I’ve learned is that my sensitivity is weakness and a strength all at once.

My sensitivity allows me to follow my passion with confidence. It guides me to my next move, even when my brain is feeling unsure. My sensitivity allows me to truly understand me.

Anyway, after my 90 Day Journey, I didn’t have anymore mental toughness to withstand the ridicule. The fitness industry can be such a toxic place when you or your content ends up in front of the wrong audience. So, I did what felt good. I dove deep int0 what made me happy – what lifted me – and that was designing, building my business, and building my team.

The past year has been one of my happiest, and its because I followed what felt better and I left behind what didn’t. Now, to be clear – fitness is still absolutely 100% part of my life. Every single morning I work out – but the difference is, I just wasn’t posting videos for people to tear me down. I needed a private space to take back something that I loved so much. I did not need any judgement.

Anyway, all of that to help explain why I was struggling so much with our 2023 challenge.

I wanted to do something that felt more whole – more than just fitness. Because feeling fulfilled and finding your joy is what this life is all about isn’t it? But I was afraid you’d be disappointed that it wasn’t a straight up workout program. I argued with myself for weeks and weeks, and in the end I had to remind myself that if something doesn’t feel right anymore, even if it did in the past, I don’t have to do it! Because whatever I do – it has to make me happy otherwise, why am I doing it??

And that was the exact inspiration for the 30 Day Good Mood Challenge.

It’s all about doing one small thing a day that gets you to feel good –> so you can access your joy. Feeling good has a lot to do with how you move, how you nourish yourself, and who and what you surround yourself with. This challenge ensures you are feeling good and feeling whole, inside and out.

I purposely made this fairly “easy” and “not intimidating” because I didn’t want you to drop off a few days in! I want you to commit and ride out these next 30 days of feeling good with me. So, you in?!

If so, comment below!

Also, send this to a friend and ask them to do it with you. That always helps with accountability, plus it’s just more fun!

I made this phone screen sized so you can save it to your camera roll and then just check off digitally as you go! The pen feature on iPhone is great for this or pop this into IG stories and draw or write on top!

I recommend you start this on either Sunday Jan 1 or Monday Jan 2, 2023! I am very excited about this and will be doing this with you for all 30 days! I will be documenting as much as I can on IG stories (except for some of those digital detox days).

Please tag @blogilates if you do this so I can check in on you! And let’s use #goodmoodchallenge as our official hashtag!

Ok time to go clean the house and do all the things before 2023 gets here ahhhhhhhh

  2. oceane says:

    I love all your stuff, good job !

  3. Sanvi says:

    Hi Cassey
    I love your videos and follow you on youtube.
    You are gorgeous.
    Its so sad that where I live your products can’t be delivered.
    I wanted some tips for doing my splits
    I have done your spits workouts and they are so tiring I can’t do them consistently
    Thank you

  4. Kallie says:

    Will we have a February calender?

  5. Ari says:

    Hi Cassey, I now fully understand why you haven’t been posting workout videos. It makes sense, when terribly judgemental people have torn down a part of you that you love. Take the time you need to reclaim fitness and workouts privately. I do hope however, that you won’t completely give up on workout videos, because then these terrible people will “win” or succeed in what they want – which is tearing you down, but I know you’re both sensitive AND strong. You are appreciated and loved by all of us!

  6. Lyka says:

    I started following this from the first and it has changed my life since!

  7. Judith van Brunschot says:

    Cassey, your are the Best !!!!!! don’t let anybody bring you down !!! A real happy and healthy 2023 for you !!!!
    Best new years challange, thank you !!!

  8. I like your design, btw

  9. Jamie Johnson says:

    Oh man! This is EXACTLY what I need! Thanks Cassey for once again tapping into what I need most! Thank you and Happy New Year!

  10. Dawn W says:

    Totally relate to being a sensitive person. I recently have been reading up on this to understand more about myself. There’s actually a psychological term for it: Highly Sensitive Person. I pick up on body language, tone, if someone is tearing up I tear up. It can be a lot if am not in a good place mentally. I turn to exercise to help boost my mood.

    I found this blog and workout routine in 2020 when I had completely stopped working out. For my mental health, I wanted to start back up again. I have always loved Pilates (heard of Winser Pilates?) but wanted to challenge myself. Am not one to be motivated to workout at home, but your videos make it easier. I do hope this year brings you some comfort in knowing you and your team are doing good things for a lot of people!

  11. Bridget says:

    Just finding this blog through some of your stories that popped up on my YouTube page…LOVE this challenge! So thankful it ISN’T all workout related 🙌🏻 The mood boost is SPOT ON! 🎯 And for that reason I’m IN!

  12. Makayla says:

    I’m not sure if you even read these comments and I’m not sure what the negative content was but I absolutely love everything you put out there! You’re workouts are so challenging which I love, you’re a talented designer, and I love your positive/ perky attitude:) I also love how thorough and thought out you are in everything you do (pulling in professionals for nutrition and thinking through so many little details in your clothing etc.). I’ve thought this and told people about your stuff for years now and I’m sure there are so many other people that appreciate you!!

  13. Sharilee says:

    I’m a little late but totally in!!!!!!!

  14. Dawn S says:

    I have been following you for YEARS. You have helped me through some severe eating disorder stuff, physical and mental pain, and getting healthy after 3 hard pregnancies. I remember watching you as you were brand new to YOUTUBE, and knew you had that “IT” factor.
    I am an aspiring business woman, and I use you as inspiration, not just in a business sense, but life.
    People will always hate those more successful than them. Take this as a sign that you are doing things right!
    Rise above, and thank you for your continued support to us unknown strangers.

    2023 HERE WE COME

  15. Sophie says:

    I’m in. But i just checked protein recipies and there’s a problem… I don’t have your products. Do you have any other nice recipies i could replace hour protein shake and protein pancakes? Thank you ❤️❤️

  16. Khushi Nandha says:

    Im from India…n im In for this
    I loved the idea just by seeing the challenge 😍

  17. Ange says:

    I’m sorry for the mean insecure people out there. I have been along your ride for more than 10 years and I love working out w you! I am so glad you are on FitOn! !

    I’m in on this year’s challenge. Thank you for being well rounded!

  18. Natasha says:

    I’ll be late, but will be starting today! If I can’t do something on a day, I’ll pry do one that I skipped earlier haha! (Ex. I missed 4 days, but since I’ll be traveling some days for a conference and also don’t have protein powder, I can substitute those days in!

  19. Caroline says:

    Hi Cassey. after reading your blog post I can’t help but wonder, who is running your channel? you? or those “gym buff dudes”? because if you were, you would upload what you want, when you want. but if you are only uploading a certain type of content because of the opinion of others, doesn’t that sound like someone else is running your channel now? also, how fair does that sound to your MILLIONS of supporters? because a few people have decided to voice their opinion, now millions of eager viewers are starved fitness content which they subscribed to in the first place!!
    also, the fact that they are being referred to as “buff gym dudes and meathead minions” is only reflecting your insecurity, Cassey. if you were confident in who you are and your content, you wouldn’t feel the need to call them names and would refer to them with respect, even if they aren’t towards you. what you say is reflective of you.
    if you stopped fitness content because it was receiving negative feedback, does this mean you would stop uploading fashion content once it received negative feedback? something to think about. are you only uploading fashion content because people haven’t hated it yet? if it received hate, would you stop? does that mean you are basing your actions solely off of the opinions of others. VERY important to consider. because if other people are influencing your decisions, your decisions aren’t really yours is it? your career isn’t yours. your channel isn’t yours. your life isn’t yours anymore.
    let’s be real, hate is inevitable. if something hasn’t received hate yet, it’s bound to. the question is, how much power will you give it? will you let it influence your decisions? shut down your channel and let down your MILLIONS of supporters. the reality is you can’t please everyone. i understand that you’re always trying to please everyone’s request with your beautiful designs, but to be honest, you never will please and fulfill every single one. there will always be one more person with one more request it won’t end and you will eventually burn yourself out trying to please everyone. you weren’t meant to please everyone. that isn’t your purpose. i know you never pleased your dad, but you can’t redeem that or fulfill by trying to please us. we are not your dad. we can’t do that for you. you have to do that for yourself. you have to build a support system for yourself. you have to surround yourself with encouragement that is so loud that when negativity does come, and it will, it will only be a small voice compared to the constant encouragement YOU are surrounding yourself with. only you are responsible for what you do, what you say and how you think. take care of yourself, Cassey. 💓

  27. Shekinah Hampton says:

    I’m glad you are doing something for your mental health! To many times we see people cyber bullied and go down hill after. Glad your still here love you!

  28. Pj says:

    I love your work-out videos. I only saw one negative video . I shut them down w a comment and keep coming back to you. They did not make me follow them and unfollow you. I don’t even know there names. I keep coming back coming back coming back to you!❤️🙏🏼 I will find a favorite work out I love of yours and hope one day you will feel good enough to post us another amazing workout. I love you. We need strong confident sensitive happy positive you. Thank you for not being like those who feel they must try to tear good people down to build themselves up. They will find out it just doesn’t work. We need YOU!❤️🙏🏼❤️🫶🏻❤️🙏🏼🫶🏻🙏🏼❤️

  29. Hilary says:

    Thank you for sharing your journey through 2022, Cassey.

    I had many challenges this year, myself: ending a toxic relationship, ending a 12-year career, going to school to pursue a new career in health coaching, family health struggles, and moving are among just a few of those challenges. Through it all, I made the choice to alter my behavior in each of those circumstances. I devoted time to myself and sought therapy, maintained my exercise regime, ate mindfully, kept a sleep schedule, rediscovered journaling, read TONS of self-fulfilling books (in addition to the optional reading suggested by my schooling program), and used connections (old and new) for support. This new year, I will continue focusing on the things that matter to me. My desire to help others in a way that brings me joy is exactly the kind of relief I need. The actions we take, the lessons we learn, and the supports we keep all affect our behavior, habits, and ultimately our health. You, Cassey, have given me microdoses of happiness through it all (and throughout the last 9 years I have followed you). Thank you for your inspiration, your honesty, and the courage to move forward with what brings you joy. You are committed to helping others, like me, discover their strengths in a fun way. You are unique and you are unstoppable. We all are. But you remind us Popsters that each and every day. Thank you!

    Forever grateful,

    Cassey, I’m in! I’ve been your devoted fan since 2014, and you are always able to get me back on track and to help me find the joy in fitness. Your belief in your Popsters always inspires me to keep going. I’m really happy you followed your heart and believed in yourself and what you needed, too. Happy New Year!

  41. Anna says:

    I’ve been working out with your videos since 2021. 2020 was not a good year for me and so in January 2021 I took your challenge, later I continued following your monthly workout plans and finally felt proud of myself and my body. I felt really sad that you haven’t been posting any workout videos and I kept thinking of the reason. Thank you for sharing your story this past year. I hope that one day when you feel ready, you will post new workout videos again because I miss them terribly. You are always so positive, motivating and you look so graceful in your videos so I hope there will eventually be many more of them.❤️

  42. Shelly says:

    You are so strong Cassey! The people who made fun of you just need the views, so they have to go bully people. Those people can’t make original content like you!

    Thanks Cassie for reel I’ve watched so many haters of your videos and it hurts me . I liked your challenges they just were too much for me . I liked to walk or run a couple days a week and incorporate Pilates on my off days . I don’t bulk or lift really over 5 dumbbells I just think working out is the 20 percent and moving by body is my goal with veggies 🥗 and get them in and water avoid soda .. go you for doing you and haters be haters they do that they and you know what they all talk and no action you your a doer

    Feeling through your feelings is hard work – much harder than closing your heart to it all. Thank you for all that you offer us, Cassey. I just did the Glow Up workouts again (on day 14 of it now) and I can tell how much stronger I am since January. I still do your old videos all the time and am so grateful for them and you. I also just dove into my first Fit Planner, yay! We love you. thanks for doing what’s best for you and sharing your story with us.

  188. Denise says:

    I just loved this challenge so much! I follow you since 2013, so we go a looong way back. I feel like you’re an old friend.
    I’m so happy you’re doing this. I feel like you’re “coming back to your roots”, as you will, and I don’t mean this in a condescending way, just that I’ve always seen you as a happy and optimistic person, filled with joy and uniqueness, working with fitness but I’ve always thought you were more than that, that you didn’t focus just on the outside and the appearance you’d get from it, but you’d focus on the joy and how it would feed your soul with happiness and the feeling of being “whole”.
    As the years went by and you were getting more famous, I feel like it became more difficult to focus on that, because the fitness world can be very toxic, as you said, and I think it makes us more superficial and shallow, and we lose more and more of that joy of the movement, and feel more and more pressured and, let’s face it, ugly and unworthy.
    So here’s my kudos to you for making an active effort to get back to that raw feeling of happiness and doing fitness on your own terms! I see you and I appreciate you. It inspires me to also keep coming back to it, and not letting these toxic people dictate what we’ll live!
    I truly wish that we, the Blogilates community (your real cyber family from the start), have a great 2023, filled with movement and fitness, yes, but most importantly, with JOY! <3
    Lots of love,

  190. Stéphanie says:

    Hello, and happy new year! Thank you very much Cassey for sharing your story with us. I may be new among your community of followers (since i only started in 2020 during the lockdown) through FitOn, but you were since day one, the best trainer and most enthusiastic, heart warming, compassionate, and strongest instructer. I would honestly look for your tutorials because i enjoyed your empowering and cheering talks during the workouts. At the same time, I always felt like I made some achievement after them cause it helped build a new skill of mine. And even though I am not as much complient to the app as before, i still have a good memory because of these precise moments. So thank you so much for that. Your journey has also been very inspiring in relation with your company and designing passion.
    You have contributed so much to my growth I could not thank you enough. The past year has led me to finally understand how precious I am. I know it’s hard to ignore all the hate in the world especially when it is directed to oneself, but just know that there are many more people who love you, look up to you, and admire your perseverance even at your weakest. The trick is to delete – not just ignore – that negativity. You don’t need to force yourself to post any content, whatever you share is always of added value to me personally.
    I hope these words bring you some strenght and confort with this new year. Please keep doing what you’re doing, by simply being yourself. Me and the followers will always support your choices for what they are, because behind the screen we are all human after all.

I’ve been doing your calendar since may of 2020, and you have replaced all of my other gym/ workout classes because I love the workouts, but even more your motivation and energy and good karma just permeates my whole day – thank you! I have purchased many items from your Popflex active for me and as gifts- all of which have been loved. I’m older- 61, and have many ideas for you if you ever want to target an older age group 🙂 Thank you for being the best part of my day!!

  216. Sandra says:

    I found your workouts in 2020, starting with the short easier ones and gradually, over months, moving to the extreme ones and now include some dumbbells. I do – Monday chest, Tuesday abs, Wednesday rest, Thursday butt, Friday legs, Saturday rest and Sunday stretches for splits, just for fun and not there yet 😁. Along with brisk walking, healthy eating most of the time, doing things I love and spending time with good friends, this has mad my physical and mental health so much better. I really do feel like a different person. More confident, happier and more resilient against life’s
    downs. I included some of your glow-ups last January and loved them. But then I still went back to the routines I used before and that still work for me. You have such a brilliant range to choose from already and I absolutely love this 2023 challenge. It’s fresh and do-able – I am totally in! Sending you lots of love and Happy New Year Cassie!

    I’m in! So excited!

  241. Maria K. says:

    Yayyyyy! I am SO totally in 💗 Thank you so much for another fun new January challenge! I’m so very excited! I was dying for a new workout challenge, but this will really do me some good. I’ve done a slightly similar thing before, halfway through 2022, when I spent a week participating in the Running Restart Challenge with the incredible Turia Pitt (if you love fitness or running and haven’t heard of her, you HAVE to look her up 💕). That week was really insightful and helped me out alot, but the Good Mood Challenge may be even better because it seems just as intensive and lasts a month! I’m just so happy you’re officially coming back, I knew you’d never leave us 💕 I’m willing to bet that if this goes well, we’ll get a new fitness challenge or video soon, too? 🤞😍🤞

    I’m gonna aim to be doing this daily, preferably before my daily calendar workout if I can manage, and journaling my daily reflections like I did with my Running Restart challenge and my Glow Up Sessions as a good way to reconnect with myself and start the day off with something really happy or relaxing that you’ve got written down.

    Turia always said to take 20 minutes a day, doesn’t matter when, but try for the mornings if you can, just 20 minutes to do something that day that makes your day great. Anything at all as long as it makes you feel great! Eating a tasty avo toast with the sunrise before the kids get up, a brisk morning walk after tea, just sitting under your favorite tree for 20 minutes soaking up some sunshine, etc. Because if you don’t take your 20 minutes and keep putting it off, then that 20 minutes will just get eaten up by something or someone else, so try to seize the moment for yourself and make yourself a priority ❤️ Challenges like these really remind me to ground myself back into my reality, and get inspired and fired up for workouts again! I’m looking forward to this after the weird year 2022 has been 😂 so many odd little ups, and a few more really low downs…

    I’ve seen some of those stupid videos and shorts you mentioned pop up in my news feed on YT, and they made me so angry. I had to fix and readjust or remove alot of my liked videos and watch history, and click ‘do not recommend channel’ /’not interested’ sooo many darn times just to get these people to stop popping up on my home feed! They’ve hijacked your name and hashtags to manipulate the algorithm, and it’s one reason that the whole mess frustrates me so much still to this day, so I can only begin to imagine how that must make YOU feel 😢 Your teaching techniques and exercises are the only ones that work or have ever worked for me, and it hurt and infuriated me that these randoms who didn’t even know what they were on about were trying to saying that pilates isn’t how I lost so much weight 😑 Well, I definitely didn’t do anything else, and Blogilates helped me lose literally ALL of my baby weight after 2 kids without even changing my diet, so yeah, get that garbage outta my feed. 🙄

    I love ya so much, Cassey, and I’m glad you decided to take a big step back and do what you needed to do to protect your heart ❤️ Take your time coming back to doing workout videos, and stay true to what you feel is authentic and genuinely you. In spite of those losers who keep trying to get views by cheating and hijacking the AI instead of actually putting work and effort into their videos like you and Sam do, you will be very warmly welcomed back to YouTube whenever you decide to make your triumphant return to fitness videos. Your real fans ain’t goin nowhere 🙌😉

    1. Holly says:

      I love what you said! The true Popsters understand! We may be getting antsy for new content, but LOVE you Cassey. There is no way I could put myself in front of people for ridicule. Please know that you have a HUGE fan base and true Popsters would never shame.

  242. Deb says:

    I’m in Cassey!

  243. Sarah says:

    I absolutely LOVE this challenge! It’s exactly what my body and mind need. Little changes that over time make a huge difference. Thank you for following your heart; my heart recognizes this need too.

  244. Ani says:

    Omg yes!!

  245. Laura says:

    I’m in! Though, I would like to see this mental fitness challenge on the Body by Blogilates app. It will make things convenient!

  261. Mickey says:

    Finding joy in life is essential—inner joy! This is one of your best ideas Cassey for the start of a new year—finding joy, but of course, one must look in the right places. Happy New Year everyone! 🎉🎊🥳💗

  262. Jax says:

    Whoohoo!! I’m in 💖 I’ll try to remember to share it @jacquelinerosegold I’m excited for something so holistic!!

  263. Fathima says:

    I hope 2023 will be best for all of us and cassey wish you happy new year💕🫶🏻 May this amazing year bring us love, success, health, and most importantly happiness in and around us✨ I’m interested in this 30 day challenge🤌🏻💯, this is what exactly I needed for 2023!!!! Wholesome ❤️‍🔥

  264. Jacquelyn says:

    Cassey, as much as I would love to do everyday of these challenges due to some crazy health issues not allowing me to eat some of your foods and sometimes preventing me from doing physical things, I will join in on the days I can AND I do commit to doing something or eating something that bring me joy on those days that I can’t join in on.
    I love that you are doing life in a way that makes you truly happy, and I am so sorry to hear about the haters out there that tear you down. I wish it wasn’t the case because working out with you has gotten me through more than you will ever know (I’d actually love to fully share my story with you one day but I don’t have insta so I can’t Dm you it, but it’s crazy and intense and you have played a massive role in it). Thank you for all your positivity and I hope you have a JOYFUL New Year!

  265. Rebecca G says:

    I will never understand why huge muscular men act like they know best how women should be training their bodies especially to the point of leaving toxic comments on a woman’s content that has helped so many ppl. It was ridiculous and I lost respect for all of those “creators”.

  266. Jasmin says:

    I’m in! ❤️

  267. Sidnee says:

  271. Ruth says:

    This is a brilliant way to start a new year! I’m in!!!

    1. Ashley says:

      9:33 am Monday

  272. E. T. says:

    Love this challenge and I’M IN! But know I miss your workout content. I hope you will see that women everywhere support you and would love to have you create more fitness videos (YouTube and new on FitOn). as a busy mom of 4 your challenges are the only ones I’ve found that work for me. Just know you are valued whatever you choose to do and one day hopefully as my babies get older I’ll get a paying job again and be able to afford your adorable clothing line…I scroll it endlessly but 4 in diapers sucks all the $$$. Happy New Year!!

  273. Anapaula says:

    I’m down

  274. Christy says:

    Love it! I’m in!

  278. Olivia S. says:

    So excited to commit to a plan! ♡

  285. Sophia says:

    I’m in Cassey! Im so excited to do this challenge and I’m so happy that you’re following your heart and staying true to yourself. Hope 2023 brings you joy and happiness!!!!

  296. Annie Hull says:

    I miss your workouts so much💜 your videos never fail to put me in a better mood, help me get through a tough workout and brighten my day! It breaks my heart that so many people tore all of that down❤️ in your business, your clothing line, your instagram posts, blog posts, all of it – you are such an inspiration Cassey 💕💕💕 even though I’m sad there won’t be a fitness challenge this new year I’m still excited for the good mood challenge and I’m totally in!!!!

  297. Jennifer Valle says:

    I am ready to try this! I love that you are not only focusing on fitness but all around wellness. Everything contributes to your well being, not just working out. I plan to get my sister’s roped into this as well. 🙂

  298. Holly says:

    I am glad you are doing what makes you happy. I love your workout calendar because it takes the thinking out of working out. As a working mom, my lunch break is my only work out time. I’d be lying if I was not a little sad about no new content. I am afraid the fitness piece of your company will go away and I’ll have to find a different fitness vlogger. And I really don’t want to! Love you Cassey and Team. Happy 2023!

  299. Macey Bacher says:

    I’m in! I’m so excited to start! You are an inspiration to us all Cassey! I hope this next year is an even better one for you! Love you! xo

  310. Karen Giang says:

    Thank you for sharing your vulnerability and what you’ve been processing and how you’ve been reflecting and growing this year. It takes a lot of courage. Also, good for you setting boundaries with people. Really outlining what is okay and what is not okay. People that tear others down on the internet are people sitting in the cheat seats of your arena. Thank you for daring greatly.

  311. Shannan says:

    I am in ✨

  318. Moriah Jones says:

    Hi! I know that I do not own a business, but I totally understand how it feels to feel like the whole world is against you. I have never been officially diagnosed, but I am pretty sure I have ADHD and one of the biggest reasons why is because of a disorder common in people with ADHD called RSD. It basically means you are OVER-sensitive to rejection. If I’m standing in a circle and the people in that circle says, “Let’s go get coffee,” they could mean to include me, but because they don’t say, “Hey, Moriah, you coming?” I assume I’m not invited. As someone who is in college, this has created a lot of low self esteem. I have struggled with my self worth more this year than any other year. I want to overcome this issue next year and learn my value for myself. It was nice to read this and know that other people feel the same things that I do!

    1. Sonja Bleier says:

      Oh my gosh! I don’t have ADHD, I have ASD, but I do this too! It’s mildly embarrassing if I’m wrong and I am invited, but I always figure it’s better than being seen as the annoying one who invites themselves to everything. But also part of the reason I could never handle being a public figure like Cassey. People are always gonna hate on you even if you’re a lovely wonderful positive human as we know she is. So proud of her for doing what’s best for her mental health and spreading that positivity to us. ❤️
