5 Ways to Love Yourself First and Live Your Life for YOU
Two truths have changed my life: 1—You can’t know love, and give love, if you don’t love yourself first. If you try, it won’t be pure or unconditional. 2—You’re here for a specific purpose that only you have. It makes zero sense to live anyone else’s life but your own! Come home to yourself and your divine purpose with these 5 tips.
