At this point in my life, almost everything is an act of self love.  In the past (and still struggling in the present) I’ve been very down on myself, harsh, judgmental - in ways I would never be to another person.  Daily I try to be accepting of myself, kind to myself, even proud of myself. (Although even when I manage that I can be snarky and refer to it as narcissism.) Taking the time to make some breakfast, pouring a cup of tea, taking photos.  These are all little things that I do for myself.  It’s perhaps the first time I’ve ever really even considered what it is I want, and what I want to do. It’s daunting to me to have such freedom, but I’m working at accepting it, and myself, more each day.

I’m in absolute awe with the honesty of your words and the realness of this photo. It is so beautiful. You look amazing here and i’m really thrilled to hear that this daily tasks can be transformed to moments you take ‘for’ yourself. I hope you can give yourself the same grace, patience, and acceptance that you give those around you.

Beautiful Lioness, 
Self-love is something I’ve struggled with for a long time and mostly in body image. I guess I’ve been pretty consistent in what my body looks like over the last few years so the most that’s changed is my body hair. My best friend stopped shaving her legs and under arms, and it really inspired me. I haven’t kept my legs shaved in over a year and have recently let my under arm hair go. If there’s one thing about my body that I’m proud of, it’s my body hair. 
My initial intention for this photo was not meant to focus on that, but I guess I can’t help but to tell you I’m proud of myself for learning to accept me. I might not always appreciate my body, but I do right now.I hope you’re well, you are so wonderful.
Much love, Thesolis x

First of all, this is just an incredible photo. I want to keep staring at it and taking you in. I think your body hair is a wonderful representation of finding self love in something that society would want to define for you. I think you should be proud of your body in total! Xoxo
