This photo represents Traci’s love for knitting and crocheting (and she’s awesome at it too!). Her love-yourself regimen? She makes sure to express daily gratitude to the Creator and to speak to at least one person she loves and adores to empower the day. “I have learned that people who love me seem to think that my flaws are pretty perfect, so I indulge in talking to loved ones so we can feed each other more love,” she says.
Her self-care recipe also includes meditating, smiling in the mirror, accepting her physical body for what it is, drinking plenty of tea for the soul, and doing work that drives her passion: art, teaching, and writing, just to name a few.
“Here’s the thing, everyday seems to be a new adventure because I am discovering parts of me that are awe-inspiring, awe-surprising, awe-indulging and awesome,” she expresses!
Don’t you love this beautiful Phoenix? Thanks, Traci for sharing your self-love story with us. You’ve definitely given us inspiring things worth adding to our own to-do lists.
Happy Friday, Phoenixes!
