Move your body in ways that feel good and then rest, a lot. Speak your truth. Hang with others that hear your truth and want to tell you theirs. Seek to know your hearts desires and not just the desires of the world around you. Go for balance. Go for self-love.
Whether or not you believe it, you deserve love, just as you are. No, not you minus twenty pounds or plus two cup sizes. Not you with more money or less body hair. Not you with more accolades or fewer past failures. The very raw, unedited version of you.
