Self love is amazing and we all deserve it! Self care is even more important!

Be authentic, unapologetic and who you are! Take care of yourself! It’s time to care about you, love you, spoil you, put you first, be careful with you, trust you, forgive you, and just be you! You can’t keep filling the tea cups if your tea pot runs dry! ~ Dr. Latasha McIlwaine
