January 8, 2019: A Day to Remember

image of self loveI did something this past weekend while I was out of town that I haven’t done in forever. I looked at myself in the mirror and said, “I am deserving and worthy“. What you don’t know (and what I probably should leave out) is that I was going to the bathroom and the door facing me had a mirror on it. What can I say? I saw an opportunity and went for it.
