The purpose of this blog is to encourage people around the world to find the self-love they deserve. This blog offers guidance, structure, advice, and encouragement to all who are on their journey in search of this essential love.

For too long we have been “prisoners without love” (pwl’s) locked in our own holding cell of the body. I call this a holding cell because we have the capability of releasing ourselves. During our everlasting journey of self-love, we can break open the bars and walk free to be “people of love.”

This idea comes from my own journey to  define love and find my own self-love, a journey I am still continuing on daily. It is a continuing journey of self-acceptance that we must nurture each moment. The most important human relationship we have is with ourselves. Before we can have a truly successful and genuine relationship with anyone else, we have to forge this self-love inside of us. Please understand, I am a woman who believes in the power of love and what it can do. Love can change the world, but only when it starts with us.

I believe in the strength of humanity and the beauty and power we have within us. Once we recognize the power we have we will truly change the world. This is exactly why this project is so important.

First and foremost, you need to do this for yourself. You need to do this because you believe this love is what you deserve and long for. Secondly, do this to help show others they deserve this love and there are other people out there on this journey with them. Thirdly, do this to help promote women empowerment and our project to fund women empowerment organizations across the world. Together, and only together, can we do this. So, jump, and trust your heart will catch you.

Once you have your letter (or poem, or song, or picture drawn, or video created, whatever medium you would like to use) please send it to me at loveletterstoyourself@gmail.com. You can include your name, make it anonymous, use a fake name, or no name at all, it is completely up to you. I will include whatever you want me to and this is completely confidential. After submitting your letters, I want to compile a book and publish it, using the profits to help women empowerment organizations around the world. Also, if you have any questions, comments, ideas, or concerns please email me at this address, as well. Please help me reach our goal!

Peace, Love, and Amity,
