Blowing your own trumpet is not the best of attributes you can have but, a little blowing won't do any harm. I believe in self love so much that when I saw Nicole Nyasha's post on the aspect, I got inspired. Check out her blog for the juice. As I was saying, being your own cheerleader is mandatory because that way, you don't need/crave people's validation. While you flourish from the good compliments and positive criticism, be first, your number one fan. Love yourself and learn new things about you every day. Self love is the best love.
