Radical Self Love

What does radical self love mean to you?

It’s such a rad thing to contemplate because layers of answers may reveal themselves.

When I think about it, I think of my friends. I know .. radical self love should be about ones self and it does come back to that, I promise. It’s just my love and acceptance for my friends is so vast and so because of how absolutely unique they are. I never look at a friend and find flaws in their looks or words. I cheer on their wild ideas and have a well of support for every emotion and obsession. I adore that they are so completely them and when I shine that same love and acceptance on myself, it absolutely helps in this journey called life.

Seeing yourself in your entirety is absolute self love. Rather than becoming overwhelmed with the season you’re in, knowing that this is just a piece of your whole story. Giving yourself permission to change and evolve, to recognize that there is no exact version or you.

To me, being curious about your heart is a stunning way to exhibit radical self love. Witnessing how you feel rather than cultivating what you think the response should be. Marveling at your own emotions and diving in with freedom and surrender.
