What is self-love?
Self-love isn’t bubble baths and scented candles — it’s an ongoing practice of deepening and opening, of accepting the parts of yourself that have not known love, of journeying towards wholeness.
Sometimes it feels like beauty and becoming and aliveness, other times it feels like grief and loss and heartbreak — a conscious collapsing, burning to the ground and sitting in the ashes of who you once were until you have the strength to go on.
And self-love takes courage — to pay attention to the places within us that are full of anger and anxiety and afraidness.
And to admit that those are the places where we need to do the work, the shame-filled places that need our love — so that slowly, as we heal and strengthen and blossom, we can let that love spill over into the world.
