Under neath the layers of the world is a soul that deserves to be honored. It forms the essence of my being and is expected to be treated with respect. Self-love means accepting who I am internally. My core authentic self. The perspective of the outside world is irrelevant.

When I achieve unconditional love for the person I am on the inside, positive self-talk occurs naturally. Building blocks of self-love happens from the inside not externally.

Becoming worthy of love starts with having a character of integrity. I ensure that each of my interactions with others is handled openly and honestly. I am trustworthy and proud to be a person who speaks her truth from a heart centered place.

My honesty inspires others to put their trust in me. Knowing that I create a safe place for them gives me a great feeling.

I approach people with kindness, regardless of the relationship we share. When you lead with kindness it makes room for a peaceful resolution. I send positive vibes to all.

Although I have flaws, my positive traits far exceed anything that I sometimes feel insecure about. I celebrate my strengths and embrace my imperfections. There is so much about me that is lovable.

I repeat affirmations to myself each day. When I look in the mirror, I tell myself that I am beautiful, I am loved. Regardless of how my hair is styled or how much makeup I’m not wearing, I see beyond the exterior.

My inner beauty shines out and proves that I am worthy. Today, the only validation that matters to me is my own. I stand proudly as I consider the accomplishments this far. Each win that I have is mine because I believe in myself unconditionally. Self-love is my super power.

Today, I am exactly who I am, and I love every ounce of my being. There is power in truly accepting myself just as I am. With confidence, I go through each day embracing the journey and trusting the process.
