Having a low opinion of yourself is not "modesty". It's self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not "egotism". It's a necessary precondition to happiness and success. -Bobbe Sommer
I love this quote as it speaks to our innermost self and how we feel about ourselves. Its necessary to truly love and respect yourself first. Don't confuse self love with being self-centered and self-seeking it acts to gain recognition. Love does not boast but rather it protects, trust, hopes and preserves. Make a habit of showing yourself true love, accepting your uniqueness as your blueprint to your happiness and success. Once you do this, everyone and everything around you will take notice of your light!
