* Embrace who you are, don’t run from it or obsess with “fixing” and “changing.” Acknowledge what you need… nourish it… and channel your energy into what brings you peace. Then, the balance will find its way in… and you will still recognize the person looking back at you in the mirror.
* Just in case no one has told you lately, “Holy S#!*, you are STRONG.”
* Always make time for silliness (even just for a moment, especially when things get tough… “Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut).
