Bare face. Pimples. Invisalign trays. Loving it all.
Self-love is one of the greatest gifts we can not only give ourselves, but our families, friends, colleagues, and community. When you love yourself, your capacity to love others grows exponentially; your self-love overflows onto everything and everyone.
It’s a battle that isn’t won just once or twice. You have to consistently practice self-care, gratitude, and positivity to keep the love for yourself alive. I haven’t mastered it at all, but I feel immense peace with who I am far more often than I ever have. And I know I’ll say the same thing a year down the road. It’s not easy when life gets chaotic and others’ voices creep into your own thoughts, but the fight is so worth it.
