When you truly love yourself, everything in your life starts to operate better- work, relationships, even your body. And you can even achieve higher levels of health! This is why I wrote my newest book, Recipes for Your Perfectly Imperfect Life. Struggling to love yourself steals your joy. It keeps you from being the “Real” you… from authentic relationships… and from feeling good. Now you can experience a new level of well-being and find true inner peace, even if your life is a complicated mess.
