I want you to love and value yourself. My number one goal/mission/purpose in life is to encourage women to love themselves and to have good self-esteem and a positive self-image. It sounds so simple: Love yourself.
But when you really think about it, it encompasses so much and it can completely change the world.
If you think about all of the problems that stem from women and girls not loving themselves you get the bigger picture. When you don’t love yourself, you tend to have low self-esteem and self-worth. We’re talking teen pregnancies, domestic violence, bullying, suicide, and those are the big issues. There’s also just everyday unhappiness. I’m trying to do my part, however itsy bitsy, to change that.
If I can show one woman that her happiness isn’t defined by some guy giving her attention then I am doing what I need to do. If I can show one woman that she doesn’t have to act out and treat other people badly to make herself feel good, then I am serving my purpose. And if I can show just one woman that there are beautiful and amazing things inside of her and that she’s totally awesome, then I have done exactly what I set out to do.
Loving yourself, encouraging others to love themselves, seriously changes the world.
It causes a ripple effect that moves out to the other women in your life. Showing them that they too can shine and be happy. If you are worthy of love then maybe they are too.
