Sometimes the hardest reality is looking within yourself. Seeing all that you are, is simple in thought and difficult in practice which I personally struggled with for years. A close friend of mine asked me if I could go home and look at myself in the mirror and say out loud that I loved myself. I started to tear up as I realized that I couldn't do it because I knew I wouldn't believe it and that scared me. This piece is a homage to that moment of wanting to be enough for myself, to love who I was.
