Radical Self Love Manifesto

rsl

Years ago, I wrote a Radical Self Love Manifesto. If you ask me, a manifesto is never done, never finished: there is always room for it grow, evolve, and change. I posted this, line by line, on Facebook, and the reaction was wonderful.

Here’s the whole thing. If you’d like to share it, you can click the little pink birds to tweet your favourite lines!
