#32: self-love is a combination of self-parenting, self-best-friending, grit, and conscious awareness.
sometimes you have to give yourself a hug and tell yourself that you are so awesome.
sometimes you have to tell yourself that’s enough, time to stop being intolerant or afraid.
sometimes you have to just feel your five senses, open yourself to learning something new, try to love your shadow side, and accept her too. most of all, you’ve gotta know that you've got your back and you won't take any s**t from anyone, yourself included.
from the japanese poet issa, born 1763:
puny little frog!
i’m here to back you up.”
