What does self-love mean to you? How do you practice it?
Self-love looks so different for the individual. For me, self-love has been so much about connecting mind, body, and soul and making sure the wellness is cohesive between all aspects and dynamics of what makes me human.
Dance workouts, going on walks, writing poetry, reading- all of these are aspects of practicing self-care for me!

Comment on this phrase: “our flaws make us beautiful”
I would say that it's our flaws that are the reason that we are beautiful. If not for our flaws, our quirks then I think we would be just like everyone else. But it's the flaws and the unique aspects of who we are that highlight our beauty.

What’s something that you think is beautiful about yourself?
My smile!!
