"The love that he had given me through his strong hands which lead to a fist across my body...
he still didn’t get to my soul...
The love that he had given me through his powerful feet which lead to a kick across my forehead...
he still didn’t get to my soul...
After every kick, punch, slap, toss, bruises, mental and physical abuse
you name it he did it...
he lead me to find love without the abuse
and I found it in...
I Believe In Me and I Love Linnae.

"Self-Love is a Vibration.
It’s an energy within that is a force and allows that love to flow
abundantly to others around you.
Self-Love is the acceptance of who you are mind, body and soul.
In my community, I share with others tools and resources to love and live abundantly.
Self-Love is definitely inner, and a light that shines out when you feel it within."

"Self love is waking up, looking in the mirror at the messy hair that might be mistaken for a birds nest, the giant pimple on your forehead that's the size of a crater and the bags under your eyes that looks like you are back in college and have been up all night studying for finals, and still being able to say to yourself.
'You are beautiful. You are perfect just the way you are. I love you.'

"I help women reclaim their power through self-love."
"In my spiritual journey, I stumbled across the realization of loving myself inward and transferring that love outwards both in my physical self and through those around me. Growing up I felt that self-love wasn’t something that anyone really spoke about and, I later realized that I had made up my own meaning of what it meant through what I watched, heard, or thought to be true.
I thought self-love was being confident on how you looked physically and keeping yourself glammed up from head to toe. I thought it was pretending you loved the way you looked even when you thought someone was more skinner than yourself. I thought it was hiding behind the layers of makeup because that’s what everyone else did. But it turns out that I was completely wrong.
Self-love is more than just your image and what you look like externally. It is accepting who you are in this lifetime and embracing all of your gifts that make you unique. We all have self-love and awareness in all of us. But if we don’t have that awareness to feel and see what truly makes you happy, loved, and fulfilled, then you must start tuning into yourself to find that space of peace and happiness. You must feed your mind, body, and soul with what empowers you to look within and be your highest self because only you can create your own happiness and recognize the beauty within your existence."

"Self-love is so much more than doing what feels good. Sometimes it won’t feel good because you’ll be called to say no to people, places, and things that you like, so that you can invest the time and energy into creating a life you love.
We are here to cultivate self-love which empowers us to speak our truth, shine our light, and fulfill our greatest potential.
Remember that with every “NO” you speak from a place of self-love you are also saying “YES” to a life you love.
