Love Your Nature!

We are all individually unique and we need to celebrate these differences and allow ourselves to shine. Love Your Nature!
I have always been proud of my heritage and ethnicity as an Asian American, Taiwanese female but I was terribly insecure about a tremendous amount of things about myself growing up. I’ve improved drastically in this department, but I am still insecure about my butt – wanting that Kim Kardashian booty! There are some things that I admit that I have upgraded in myself. I got breast implants when I was 18 years old, and I haven’t regretted them for one single day. I’ve also had huge issues with my hair. All through my youth I was absolutely insecure about things such as my skin, the size of my eyes (I wanted huge KPOP star eyes), my nose, the list is endless.
I am happy that as I have grown and matured I have truly learned to love myself. Trust me, it’s still a complete work in progress but every day I love myself just a little bit more. It’s so important in the journey of self confidence and self love to be proud of who you are, where you came from and most importantly what you stand for. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past, you shouldn’t be ashamed of anything that you did, as long as you learned from the experience and don’t repeat the same mistakes over and over again. I am writing a 30 day guide on the journey to happiness…more on that soon!
