Self-love has been defined as the high regard for one's own well-being and happiness.

Although it is a necessary love and has become a vital message of positivity for women all around the world, it is still difficult to achieve for most, considering the negativity we as South Africans and especially women are still surrounded by on a daily basis.

GLAMOUR has compiled a list of local women that includes a few the iconic Bernini GlowGetters who we believe are the embodiment of self-love and who we definitely stand for. Take a look at the list below:

👸🏾 Being a part of change means putting yourself out there no matter what you may be doing, saying yes to a modeling contract (@myfriendned) and gradually moving in a direction that speaks to building my confidence more and more everyday - most importantly, being part of a movement in pop culture, magazines and advertising - where young girls can look up to people that look like them. It’a cool to know that there are campaigns like @dove’s #ShowUs campaign in partnership with @gettyimages & @girlgaze that embrace women’s self- acceptance issues head on, by showing that no matter what we look like, even on our bad days, we’re freaking beautiful - inside and out. #Ad #Dove #RealBeauty #ShowUs Photo. @fikilekgasane

I was thinking the other day about how we get discouraged from chasing our dreams on the basis that “so many people are already doing that” or “the market is full”. My answer to such critiques lies here in a book store. Where you find multiple books that address one topic. Multiple authors with a different style, point of view or concept about the same subject. All with books in a bookstore. So yes, many people may already be doing what you want to do but are they doing it like you? Yes, you may not be the first but so what? There is nothing new under the sun but your art should still be seen, your work should still be done, your voice should still be heard. What YOU have to offer is still valid. So my little parting challenge is, start asking critics (including yourself) “so what?” So what if there are competitors? So what if I’m only starting now? So what if you are scared? So what? You owe it to yourself to at least try. And try you must. ⠀⠀ 💕 ⠀⠀ ________________________________________ #LifewithPhemi #LwP #personaldevelopment #selflove #selfcare #selfhelp #wellnesscoach #cultivatinggoodness #learningandunlearning #rebuilding #newme #becomingbetter #doyourpart #showup #learn #try
