You know what feels good? Working on something and starting to feel the benefits.

I have been working on self-love for the past 3 years and have done some intense growth. It has been full of a lot of pain (we have to go through our pain, not around it, unfortunately.) I'm beginning to REALLY love and appreciate myself - inside and out. Golly I sure have hard days still sometimes (um hello weaning my fourth baby and the ensuing boob crisis? Whoa wasn't prepared for that). I also definitely struggle with other aspects of myself sometimes too. BUT overall I really do love ME! All of me. I have more days of self-love than of self-loathing so that's a win. I'm proud to be who I am and I am beginning to accept myself right in the present moment. That feels good!

So this photo of myself (can't call it a selfie cuz it doesn't seem fitting...) represents hope. Growth and healing are possible. I'm so glad.

Every day it is a journey and a practice, but how wonderful to begin to see the fruits of my labors and be able to use healing tools to aid me when I'm down, so that I can get back more quickly to self-love.

By the way! My Cleanse Your Life Healing Program is on sale! My brother-in-law is fighting terminal cancer and the proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to him. We are so appreciative of all the help so far! Click here to see his Go Fund Me page.
