21 Inspiring Self-Love Quotes

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Self-love is an art form. It’s a feeling and an action all rolled up into one big ball of “oh yeah”.

And have you ever noticed how life tends to become lighter and lighter when you encompass a more natural state of self-love?

It’s undoubtedly one of life’s utmost essentials. It sets the tone for joyful living because life just opens up, in its own way, when you are filled with it.

Not to be too opinionated, I feel like the world could definitely use more self-love. Yet it isn’t always an easy task to translate exactly what that looks like.

In my heart, I feel that self-love looks like self-acceptance and self-compassion mixed with self-nurturing and little bit of self-surrender. It looks like believing in yourself even if no one else does. Or maybe it looks like you knowing, without a shadow of a doubt, that you deserve AWESOMENESS.

But regardless of it’s definition, I know that I absolutely can’t live without it…

Yeah, it can be one of those work in progress thingies, but it never gets old, that’s for sure.

So read on to get a good dose of self-lov’in and for a bit of confirmation of just how awesome you truly are too (wink,wink)!
