2016 – it was a great year, filled with ups and downs, but all in all I did expect it to be better. We tell ourselves this ever year, don’t we? But I like to generate as much positivity within myself so I decided to enter 2017 with a BANG!
Self love is something I’ve battled to understand the concept of for years – if you don’t like the way your arms look, does that mean you don’t love yourself? If you don’t wear your natural hair and keep your nails natural, does that mean you don’t love yourself? I thought it was the case for years so I was convinced that I didn’t love myself until I realised that it’s okay not to like certain things about yourself, self love is about accepting yourself regardless! And I do accept myself, so this shoot wit Niyi Okeowo was all about self love. I’ve decided to upload some of the photos that we took at the Lekki Conservation Centre – I really was at one with nature but also at one with myself.
I hope we all continue to practice self love this year – it’s the most important thing you can do for yourself.
