I <3 me*
I have been to the depths of hell and back. I can say the life looks different from here. I have a new appreciation of who I am. I have finally fallin in love with me. All of me. Like most people I have always been content with who I am* (* when I am at my best and everything is going my way). Life with that asterisk left room for self doubt, loathing and even self hate.
I loved that I am slender but only when I was a size 6. But God forbid I am bloated or have to use my fat girl jeans that were a size 8. I loved being a woman in business but only when I was business is booming and I got everything under control. I love me when my nails are freshly manicured, makeup on point and hair is layed perfectly but that head scarf days, not so much. Since it is not possible to be perfect allday everyday I had unknowingly set myself up for a vicious cycle of discontentment and sabotage.
Now in my thristies I have kicked the Asterisk goodbye and began to love me regaurdless. This month I am exploring and sharing all the ways that I have learned (and learning) how to do that.
