Sometimes loving ourselves is difficult. While we show compassion and understanding to others, we rarely show it to ourselves. We pay compliments to others but hardly to ourselves. We long to be with others and show our love, but don’t show love for ourselves.

In this video, I share a few of my favorite and most effective tools for practicing self-love. You’ll see how self-love is about the present moment, not searching the past or projecting to the future.
We all are worthy of our love, especially our own.
With resilience, grace, and love,
