Everyday Strangers x Tonya.jpg

"I would instantly tell my younger self to start loving yourself immediately because you won't grow unless you do. You'll never know what love is (as much as you may want it) until you start loving yourself. The process of loving myself has been the best!

I believe there's this secret ingredient to life which is simply making time for YOU. Even when you don't know what you want to do or what your purpose is in life; go figure it out! Go out there! Get a book, go to a park, read it! Once you're done with that, go get some coffee. Just keep "doing". I feel a lot of us are lost. Like, we aren't connected with ourselves. And unfortunately, we try to fill our voids with objects, things and even people. But we can't fill it that way, we can only fill it by nurturing ourselves."
