For years I struggled with self-love and self-esteem issues.
I hated the way my body looked.
Envious of how other women looked in comparison to me.
I starved myself in order to look a certain way (thinking that would bring all the boys to my yard!)

When I was at my lowest point, I was drowning in negative repetitive thoughts.
Thoughts of being unworthy, unlovable, undeserving of happiness, and forever alone.
These thoughts became so loud that it took over my life!
All I could think about was how I looked, how others thought I looked, and how I wasn’t worthy of any happiness.
Thankfully, at the time I had an amazing partner that was my rock and support.
However, I knew that I needed to change for myself.
I needed to become more self-aware and change my thoughts so they could no longer control me.
This is when I discovered meditation.
I would start with 10 minutes every morning.
Just sitting there, trying hard to tune out those self-destructive thoughts.
Nothing really changed for the first week.
I still felt angry at myself, my body, and my mind for constantly thinking negatively.
Then by week 2, I tried a new meditation.
This meditation was tailored to self-love, acceptance, and finding joy in life.
I started again with just 10 minutes, and slowly started experiencing longer and deeper meditations.
You may be wondering why I always recommend meditation?
Well, a couple of reasons.
