But what love got to do with it when I don’t love myself?

 

I recently came across a blog post I wrote three years ago; it was about how I’d realised that if I wanted to be truly happy I need to love myself (liking myself at that point would have been a good starting point to be honest).

Making It Happen: Transformation Challenge

I posted about the ‘making it happen‘ challenge on Sunday and how I was going to give it a go to see if it would make me a happier, more positive/optimistic person who was absolutely besotted with myself by the end of October.
