Love Story

This is not your typical love story.

There are no tall handsome strangers or knights in shining armour. There is no “you complete me” or long lost lovers reunited. This love story is the most important love story, the self-love story! This is the story about how YOU, and only YOU all by yourself, are ENOUGH! You with all your apparent flaws and imperfections. You who sometimes battles with worthiness and self doubt. I am the same as you, and we are both more than ENOUGH. This is the story about how at the end of the day, the most important person is ourself and how we must all have the courage to love ourselves unconditionally if we are to reach our full potential and have the capacity to give love fully to the world in which we live. A world that is deeply in need of our love.

This blog post was in collaboration with an amazing woman and artist, Kal Barteski. She is courageously throwing love like confetti all over the world. Her gorgeous and meaningful script “enough” in gold stainless steel graced my neck for this shoot. I strongly encourage you to check out her incredible work at You Are Awesome!
