In a recent conversation with my husband, I admitted, "For a long time, I didn't think I was pretty. I didn't think I was strong or capable. And these low confidence thoughts affected my ability to create, to believe that I can create, even though I love it."
Over the last few years, I've worked hard to find self love, to appreciate who I am, to see the beauty and talent within me. Yes, it's an everyday journey. I don't think I'll ever be perfect at self love and recognizing my worth. But I work at it. And as I do, my creativity thrives a little more, and I become more accepting of my creativity, more ready to embrace what I have to offer the world, and more willing to put myself out there.
