Because the moment I matter, everything I do, everything I create, everything that is within my life starts to have significance, value. And everything else changes from there. What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love? The belief that others give me happiness. Who is one person who has changed your life for the better? Everybody. Everyone plays their role. What is the best advice you have ever received? “Follow your heart. Trust your intuition.” What is a self care habit that you practice regularly? Explore parts of yourself that you may be uncomfortable with. Do you have a favorite quote? “It’s really simple. The land, the earth is woman. How we treat women and how we treat the land is the same. By healing women, we heal the earth. By healing the earth, we heal women.” Can you share with us a resource or an app that we can use to help our own self care practice grow? How about we turn those apps off and listen to ourselves? I suggest you create a vision board – draw out what it is that you really want without any judgement. Put it on paper and make sure you can see it every day. What book are you reading right now? I just finished Wild Creative by Tami Lynn Kent. What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?
