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.

  7. Beautiful - really very beautiful. I lost my grandmother last year and have been seeing so much of her inside of me, just as you wrote - This has been the greatest comfort.
