The Year of Self-Love

2018 taught me the most important love is with yourself. When I truly embraced who I was, the good, the bad and the ugly and being comfortable in my own skin, thats when I found happiness. When that happened, the universe was mine for the taking and I would like to think since then, only amazing things have happened.  

It was  a year of self-actualization and self-redemption, forgiveness, being aware of my surroundings, and not mistaking friendships from situation-ships. I identified the seeds and weeds in my life this year and 2019 will only be a year of more growth and harvest.

In 2019 I am in search of emotional independence. Jada Pinkett Smith said it so well: “We get so caught up in all these titles and these labels of what people are supposed to be to us or for us in our lives.” I am in the process of breaking down these titles. I know this journey will be a long but rewarding one.

Most importantly I want to continue to build my blog and Instagram content. I want to push my boundaries and step outside of my comfort zones. I want to thank you for reading my blog and I hope I inspire you to try to pursue your passions. You can achieve anything you put your mind to it. Cheers to 2019 and let us really put a great effort to our dreams xo.

    Well said Dawne,

    Self love is so important.

    I like this quote.

    “I’m not afraid of dying, I’m afraid of not trying”

    Wishing you all the best in 2019.

    Thanks for the motivation.

    Today I’ll be better than yesterday 🙂
