Self love is the best love

About a week or so ago, I found a post on Pinterest regarding self love. Over time, I’ve come to believe that perhaps our greatest life lesson is learning how to fully accept and love ourselves. This importance is relevant in today’s world, especially during a time when it seems like there is an overabundance of pressure on people to be perfect. It seems as if the act of comparing ourselves to others is at an all time high. While I understand the pressure and the desire to fit a mold or a stereotype, my question is why do we do it? Why do we feel this desire to fit a mold that is someone else’s? Why do we dwell on the things we aren’t versus the things that we are? Most importantly, why do we think that “perfect” is a universal mold or concept? Why do we not see the best version of ourselves as perfect, or something that we desire to be?

What I liked the most about this pin is that it outlined things to do for yourself for 31 days straight, aka one month, to journey toward self love and acceptance. So, what I want to do today is share these 31 days of self love with you in hopes that you will find yourself walking down a road of positivity.
