So what does the phrase "self love" actually mean? It's constantly thrown around alongside photos of face masks, solo vacations, and glasses of pink moscato. Yet, regardless of what social media says, it's more than just day trips to the spa and taking yourself out on a date. Self love is an ongoing process. It's not a sudden, epiphany-style moment of eureka like we see often on movies and television. It can progress, it can regress, and it needs constant maintenance. It's a lens. The lens in which you see yourself. Falling in love with your mind, your body, your voice, all of the moving parts that make up the being that is you. It's not the same for everyone. So, I asked you all. 25 of you shared your self love story with me 💗. Thank you to those who did. You’re inspiring.

As I filled out and submitted the application to my Master's program, the questioned loomed over my head... How am I going to pay for this s***?! After several interviews, Google searches, and email exchanges, I found the answer to my question.
