For the entire month of February, I (and others) focused in on self love via the IWWB Self Love Challenge. Since the month has closed, I thought it’d be nice to do a round up of some of my favorite self love quotes meant for inspiring, boosting and elevating self love.
Affirmations and quotes are my thing if y’all haven’t figured it out yet. These little one liners have helped me in my self love journey. Hopefully they can do the same for you
