Start within. Start with yourself. Learn to love yourself – every bit of you! Love your strengths and your weaknesses. Love your body, your laugh and your smile. Love your spirit and your soul. Love who you were, what you learned and how far you’ve come. Love every ounce of your being – from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet! Love who you are and who you want to become. Love your quirks, faults and your energy. Love who you surround yourself with and love who you don’t.

Begin with this love. Indulge in it. Bask in it’s glory. This is where you will find peace. This is where you will find acceptance for what was, what is and what will be. I wasn’t always able to do this for myself. But when I realized one day I wasn’t getting anywhere resenting myself I had no other choice. I spent 4 years focusing on myself and accepting myself. It wasn’t easy but it was worth it!

When you finally accept yourself, you attract like-minded souls into your life. You manifest people that appreciate you as much as you appreciate yourself. You might lose some along the way, but that just means your growing into your authentic self and they weren’t meant to stick around. You cannot truly love others for who they are if you don’t love yourself for who you are. So my words to you today are to begin your work on the inside. This is the foundation for all your friendships and relationships in life. But the most important relationship and friendship you have is with yourself first. #FoodForThought
