Daily Affirmations for Self-Love and Acceptance December 09 2015
“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
Taking the time to practise not only loving others, but loving yourself, is one of the most important things you can do to create a healthy mind and body. With the demands of life, from going to work, or school, or taking care of a family, and balancing a social life, we can often forget that we need to take care of ourselves as well.
