Why do you think self-love is important?

Self-love is I think is really important. It's about who, it's about accepting ourselves. And it's the basis of Mankind. And being able to go ahead and you can't give from an empty heart. And if your heart is full you're able to go ahead and give more. And I think self-love is just a way of being able to go ahead and fill yourself up.

What was the one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?

I have such high expectations for myself. I’ve been using the hashtag grace over guilt. Giving myself more grace and less guilt allows me to move forward.

Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?

But I would have to say my dad. I never thought I would have an adult relationship that I have with my dad now. If you'd asked me a year ago two years ago, it was fraught with, he always, he's always loved us. But, there's been a lot of healing that happened to recognize that he'd do anything for us.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Brené Brown talks about being uncomfortable and vulnerable with people. Being able to go ahead and be authentic, and realize that “No” is a complete sentence.
