I love myself and I know it. Although it took me a long time to realize this, now I do. You should admit that too. We all are pretty cool persons who have a lot to be proud of. Some of you would be awesome moms. Some would be great business owners. Others would be always-loving friends, pets lovers, and so many more.

Some of you would be women with scar marks, stretch marks, extra weight, and even lesser and white hair. Believe me, this is what makes you perfect. Is there anyone else just like you? No. That’s what makes you unique and perfect. You might think of these characteristics as flaws, but who doesn’t?

As for me, it took me a while to abstain from complaining about my flaws in accepting them and even celebrating them. Writing inspirational self-love quotes on my notepad, or maintain a dairy just about them keeps me on track to love myself. No matter how others treat me, or how I treat myself- I always feel great about myself.

For you to feel the same, I’ve picked some of my favorite quotes to celebrate your inner self and your body. Pick your favorite one, share it where ever you like, remember it, write it somewhere and never forget to love your flaws and your uniqueness.
