So I'm not going to give you a whole bunch of fluff or blow smoke up your ass about this. Self-love is important to living your best holistic life.
But I can't teach you something I'm currently not capable of doing.
That's right, I can honestly admit that I don't love myself. At least not the way I know I deserve.

I'm constantly floating between my kindle and physical books. I try to read a different chapter of a book each day. At most, I'll read a chapter from six different books per day. Most of the time, I'll have a few books that will really attract my focus and so I'll direct my attention there.
I'm venturing into minimalism thanks to Marie Kondo and getting rid of the things that don't bring me joy. In doing this, I'm getting myself and my space up. I've already decluttered my makeup, and skincare of things that weren't working for me. But I don't have anything to replace them with. I would like to create a capsule makeup and skincare collection ( I got this idea from Tiffany DeSilva).
I'm not going to pretend to have evolved into a whole new person in this new calendar year, but I think it would be nice to see what mindset I'm going the year with. So here's what I'm bringing into 2018.
That's what I want! Not to be anyone else, but to be my most authentic self. So now I feel so much more free to be who I want and post what I want. Not just green beauty, but minimalism journey, my spiritual journey, my food journey, really every aspect of my lifestyle.
