Life is too short for you to spend your time at war with yourself. Make peace with yourself – your flaws, and your loveliness. Making peace with your loveliness can be the hardest part. From birth, we are conditioned to believe that confidence and cockiness are the same, and that to acknowledge your joyous loveliness is a shameful thing.

“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” – Brené Brown

If you accept yourself, all of yourself, all of your loveliness as well as all of your flaws, you can be happy like never before. Your loveliness is worthy of acknowledgement. And that acknowledgement needs to come from within you.
