What are the qualities your ideal best friend would have?
The best way to BE yourself is to LOVE yourself—in the way an encouraging, loving friend who thinks the world of you would. And even if we already have that awesome co-pilot in our lives, we could all use some assistance in being our own best friends and creating an unflagging internal support system that we know we can count on, no matter how crazy the rest of our lives might be. Besides, even though we can’t always depend on other people to support us in the ways we want, a foundation of self-love and self-support helps us attract people who will similarly honor us.
We have everything we need to take care of ourselves and flourish in our lives, and when we treat ourselves with the utmost kindness and respect (and, of course, a dose of tough love when it’s necessary), we will show up exactly as we are—because we know every last part of the beautiful woman we are is loved and loveable.
