“The journey to self-love and acceptance is ever-evolving. As human beings, and particularly, as womxn, we need positive reinforcement and reminders that we are enough. Affirming self-love is powerful. Loving yourself and honoring your experiences (highs and lows) is vital to living a happy and healthy life.” – Amy D.
