5. Everything Happens For a Reason

It is not easy to see how the event is supposed to benefit us when it just happened, especially when the event isn't so positive. Some slow us down and some even hurt our feelings.

Day 2. Self-care is the Best Gift

When we face strong emotions of others, we tend to let it get to us more than we should. Since I am very sympathetic, it is sometimes the hardest … Continue reading Day 128: Staying Put

Day 127: GPS to My Goal and Happiness

Progress makes happiness. Having a clear goal and measuring the progress by reviewing often create a great sense of happiness and achievement. Knowing exactly where to go gives clarity and gives better ideas of how to get to it which eases stress as well. Measuring the growth shows that we are going somewhere and it … Continue reading Day 127: GPS to My Goal and Happiness
