003 The Queen of quotes part 1

Hi Friends! You’re listening to Self-Love is Blind I’m your host Jillian and I’m legally blind. Self-Love is Blind is a podcast where we discuss all things self love related, the challenges, the self doubt that can get in the way and sharing suggestions on ways to overcome those challenges.
