I felt in order to “love myself" again I first had to teach myself to “love.” To learn the art of nurturing myself I began by loving the world, the nature and the animals around me. Deciding to place more of my energy into the earth helped me to encourage more appreciation of my own personal ‘earth’ inside me. In a way our bodies are our own individual planets that we must look after. Caring about the animals and creatures of the world can teach you to care about yourself. This sharpie piece was inspired out of this philosophy.
