I’m a walking glitter-bomb. From the age of of five, I spent my days crawling around on floors of department stores, searching for sequins and beads, as my mom shopped for fancy dresses. When I found them, I saved them and considered them my treasures.
How many sequined and beaded dresses do you stash into your closet after the holidays? How many fancy dresses do you purchase for weddings, and toss to the side, just one hot second after the event is over? I get it. I’ve been there. It makes sense, right? When will you ever wear a sequined or beaded dress on a typical day, or evening out?
I’m talking about self love. That straight to the core, stare at yourself, sans makeup in the mirror, and respect yourself, kind of love. The kind of love that no one can change, and no one can give, accept for you. Self love is a challenge. It is a constant effort, but you know what? You’re worth it!
