How to learn to love your body. AS IS. TODAY.

“Love yourself first and then everything else falls in line.”

We’ve all either heard these things at one point or another (or maybe even said them ourselves), but these tired “sayings” can sound so flippant sometimes. It’s not that easy.

We’ve been taught that if we don’t look a certain way that we simply aren’t good enough.
