What I Love About Me ~ Laura of Violet Bella

what i love about me

this summer, i am hosting a new weekly series called the what i love about me series. my vision is to get a variety of women talking about their favorite part of themselves. It could be a physical quality, an awesome ability, personality trait, etc. :)

i hope to help reverse negative conditioning from society, and promote women realizing and celebrating the positive aspects of themselves.

read on about this week's amazing woman, laura of violet bella.


One thing I love about myself is that I can look in the mirror and see my mother. Losing my mom 4 1/2 years ago is the hardest thing Ive ever been through. But as time goes on, I am reminded on a daily basis how much of her I have inside of me. From the way I look, to the things in my heart. I love that I can witness these resemblances in myself. I love that I have so many of her amazing qualities, like being someone who can be a good friend. Caring about people. Caring about the earth and the animals. And most of all, just loving. I feel blessed to carry pieces of her with me throughout my life.



It wasn't really until after she was gone that I realized how much like her I am. And there isn't any other person on this earth I would want to be like, as much as my mother.
