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.
