"You are worthy of love. You don't have to do anything to prove that. You don't have to climb Mt. Everest, write a catchy tune that goes viral on You Tube, or be the CEO of a tech start up who cooks every meal from scratch using ingredients plucked from your organic garden. If you've never received an award and there are no plaques proclaiming your exceptional gifts hanging on your walls, you still deserve all the love in the world. You do not need to earn love. You simply have to exist."
"Simple gestures of respect - care for the body, rest for the mind, and beauty for the soul in the form of music and art and nature - are all ways of showing ourselves love. Really, all of our actions - from how we respond when we can't fit into our favorite pair of jeans to the choice of foods we eat - can signify self-love or self-sabotage."
