The Girl Who Loved Herself: A Real-Life Fairytale for Women by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt
Once upon a time, there was a girl – a woman, a wife, a mother, a sister and a daughter.
She didn’t ask anyone permission to live her life the way she wanted to.
She took care of all her wants and needs.
She didn’t rely on anyone else for her happiness.
She did some things purely for pleasure and joy.
She read books.
She watched movies.
She did work that fulfilled and inspired her.
She worked hard.
She took long lingering naps.
She said yes to things she wanted to do.
She said no to things she didn’t have time for.
Sometimes, she said no simply because she didn’t want to do them.
And she had the audacity to not feel guilty about the way she lived.
And the world didn’t stop spinning.
As a matter of fact, she made the world spin even better.
