Extraordinary Insights: "Believe in yourself and take action everyday. Move for 10-15 minutes, it doesn't have to be strenuous exercise, but while you're doing that movement, tell yourself you love yourself, and that you're beautiful, and special, and you deserve to be happy. Sounds cheesy, but you will wake up with a smile on your face every single day."
