"The Universe loves gratitude, so for this month make a commitment to give thanks each day. Every day look for things to grateful for. Make “thank you” your catchphrase. As you walk from one place to another, say “thank you”, and make your last thought at night be one of giving thanks for the day. Be grateful under all circumstances, no matter what... Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
You have a busy life, juggling work, home, friendships, relationships, kids, and you're so used to being all things to all people you've forgotten who you really are anymore. Learning about yourself - what you need, want and like, what really makes you tick is the first vital step to increased happiness, reduced stress, contentment and clarity. After all, if you don't know what your needs are, how can they possible be met?
Stop romanticizing and making them out for less than they are. Take people who have them seriously, before they get seriously hurt and don't push them on others! But also talk about the hard things, so that people who need help can get it, so that counseling isn't weakness or taboo
