On her morning ritual of saying to herself “good morning gorgeous “
“Sometimes my eyes are all closed up, but I strain to see myself. It’s not about the vanity of it, it’s about how we’re strengthened. No one can love me like me. Nobody can.”
Mary goes onto explaining in detail of how important this ritual is to her.
“It’s a form of meditation. I do it in my prayer time. There’s no makeup, no nominations for an award. It’s just me & GOD. And the beauty of being able to say, ‘I appreciate my life’. To look in the mirror, my eyes are half closed & say something to myself that never even believed.”
