Hi there, my name is Heather. I’m a true believer in the power of courage. At its root, the word courage means the strength to tell your story with your whole heart.
Courage is the foundation of the Self-Acceptance Project. This website will log my personal story of the journey towards self-acceptance and the progress of the project globally. Currently, the Self-Acceptance Project already has a world-wide presence with participants young and old.
Our goal is to demonstrate courage in telling our stories with the intent of encouraging others to tell theirs. We are more a like than we are different. We all have pain. We all have shame. We’ve all made mistakes, we’ve all been misunderstood. We all wonder if we’ve got what it takes to achieve our dreams.
Through self-acceptance we can demonstrate kindness to ourselves, and learn kindness for others, and as we do that, we foster a community of loving-kindness.
Together, we can be the change we want to see in the world.
