Best of Our Blogs

I love what you have been sharing on our Facebook page recently. Reading about the things you love about your uniqueness has been very inspiring. (If you missed it, catch up here.)

Some days it’s hard to love ourselves-the quirky things we say, our crooked smile, or how we need to be around people as much as we need to get away from them. The funny thing is that what makes us different is often what makes us so lovable. Simply because there is no single person on this earth like you. When you think about it, isn’t that pretty cool?

In the world we live in, it is sometimes hard to love our unusual parts, the things that make us stand out from the crowd. But your uniqueness (the way you write, speak, walk and how you just are) is really a fingerprint, a distinct and permanent impression of your unique self on the world.

As we head into the weekend, I hope you will remember the importance of your uniqueness and carry that self-love with you. Enjoy our top 5 posts and have a great weekend!
