I was reading in one of my FB groups, and someone wrote something about self-love being great and all, but what if you can never love yourself. Wow…this statement shook me to the core.

Yesterday was actually far busier than I expected. I was up at 5 and walked the four-mile route. It is sweltering, and we are getting some humidity. So, I was exhausted by the time I was finished.
