Q & A
Why do you believe that self love is important?
Self love is important to me because it affects everyone around me. When I love myself, I set the standard for how people are going to love me and treat me.
What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?
A lot of it is old patterns and habits. Growing up in a family where self love was not something that was promoted, those old habits were what I knew. What has helped is being surrounded with people who practice self love.
Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?
I have a very, very dear friend who is a good example of self love. He sets boundaries really well with people. . . It made me realize I need to do the same thing in my life.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Spend time with people you want to become like.
What is a self care habit that you practice regularly?
Gratitude. It’s one of those things that really changes your mindset. It makes me so happy.
Do you have a favorite quote?
There are so many! I don’t think I could pick just one. But of course, it would probably be around gratitude, and how much gratitude shifts your mindset from one of lack to one of abundance.
Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.
Voxer. It’s like a walkie talkie app. Instead of sending text messages, they are little voice messages.
What book are you reading right now?
What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?
“If you haven’t figured it out already, I like to talk about gratitude. I like to teach people how important it is and how it changes mindsets.”
