inspired monday | a life of adoration

i adore myself and everyone else quote

i remember first seeing this quote decorated on the bathroom mirror at cafe gratitude. i made note of it because it was so striking– could you imagine what peace we would experience on earth if everyone committed to adoring not only other people, but themselves? it’s definitely something that’s good to be reminded of.

wishing you a happy monday & a blissful week,

paulina
