The Truth Is That You Must First Love Yourself

January 22God this tree is so sexy! She looks amazing in ever Instagram filter. I'm gearing up for a big weekend of being snowed in with some of my dearest friends.

I'm excited and I'm edgy.

Instead of trying to make the edgy parts go away, I'm committed to watching them with love. I'm identifying as this silent witness of myself rather than my personality.

We think we want to change. We don't want to change.

We want to be seen as we really are, for all of our best and hardest qualities.

Think about it.

When you are upset which feels better--when some tries to fix you because you are broken or when someone listens to you with faith that you're really doing ok? Guess what? You can do this for yourself too.

Don't try to change.

Love yourself exactly as you are and then watch as you change naturally, effortlessly, not because you have to but because you truly can.
