But it’s also all about self-acceptance. You’re beautiful the way you are! They should love you for you! 

Of course, those examples are exceptionally easy. Accept what you cannot control, and improve on what you can. Read More

By | Self Love & Empowerment | One Comment


“I find in general people have very little understanding of who they are; one has to turn a blind eye to so much of oneself in order to get through life.”


-The Crown, Season 1.


I love that quote.

It so beautifully sums up how unique and tough it is to really get to know yourself. Self-discovery is not for the faint of heart, as I’ve found out personally and professionally. Read More
