The greatest tool of self-love is self-awareness

Imagine you are staring at a canvas surrounded by a vast array of colors; they seem overwhelming at first. All those choices, so overpowering that it helps you to focus in on a very small selection of them. You get comfortable with working with these colors and soon, you may even forget about […]
