Happy Valentines Day!
"I've done some pretty brave things in my life... and sharing my skin picking journey with the world is certainly one of those things" -@bfrbabe
"I love and approve of myself. I am at peace. I choose to love and enjoy myself. I trust the process of life. It is safe to let go. I lovingly forgive myself. I am free!
Real talk: self love is hard work. This is the first photo I've ever shared like this. Literally shining a spotlight on one of my problem areas. Lots of feelings: huge lump in my throat upon looking at the images I took, then cried some when I put this one in Instagram & now the fear of potential comments.
Positive affirmations are so powerful & YOU can benefit from them! If reading the one above made you feel something: read it again, and again. Maybe start & end your day with it. I have seen some real changes in my life by starting each day with positive thoughts even before my feet hit the floor! That doesn’t mean they always just happen, but that I make an effort to be aware of the negative ones & counteract them with positive. I am working on replacing my negative habits with positive ones and that includes thoughts & words.
Our words hold power.
What is your internal monologue?
Try to be conscious of the words running through your head. If you don’t like it, change it & you’ll see a ripple effect.

"I love my ability to change, evolve and adapt in the flow of life. Draped myself in #positive #pink for this #selflovenote for @pickingmefdn‘s #valentinesday2019project." -@annettepasternak
"Learning to have more love for myself with no make up and no filters #SelfLoveNote" -@mind.me.blog
"Physically, I absolutely love my legs and my cute little booty - because cupcakes are still cakes honey! Abstractly, I love how love never runs out of my life. If one person leaves me, the universe is quick to replace them. And even though the process hurts, my people are always affirming my worth which is so important during dark times.This is my#selflovenote" -@iammohauntlhe
"Dear self, I love your kindness and gentleness with all people and creatures. I love that you will wake up early to give a sick pet their medicine, in the past for up to a year at a time. I love that you try to anticipate the needs of others and meet them before being asked. As hard as it it, you should try to show yourself that same kindness, gentleness, and attentiveness, even when you feel like you don’t deserve it, because you always deserve it. Love, Me" -@trichydermafashion
