In the words of RuPaul “If you can’t love yourself how the hell you gonna love somebody else?!”

For some it can be a lonely old world out there and so too often I think that we underestimate the power of a smile, a simple hello, a sincere compliment, a gentle touch or the smallest act of kindness.
