SELF LOVE has become an important part of my womanhood. I am constantly my harshest critic and was insanely hard on myself as a teen and in my early 20’s. Not surprisingly this manifested itself into negative thoughts, unhealthy habits, and a skewed view of myself as a developing and maturing woman. Ultimately, it was and still is the journey to self love that has helped me break those patterns and maintain a healthy relationship with myself and others. For the next few weeks I want to dedicate Fridays to self love, where we can set aside some time at the end of the week to let go and start truly loving ourselves! I hope that I can create a safe and open place for you all to go on this journey with me and I will be sharing some things that have helped me on mine. Who’s ready to join me on the Journey to Self Love?
