Truly reflecting and looking at what we need to thrive is important. Prioritizing our needs is a must. It is only then, once we know what we need, which usually reflects, hopefully, our core values can we then make authentic decisions. Change of scary. Change is hard.

The Secret to a Happy Relationship: Self-Actualization
August 21st, 2023

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson The main reason I am this happy in my relationship with my husband is not just because he makes me laugh all the time, or he is a great travel companion, or he is a compassionate and loving man – and I am not saying all these are not great, they certainly are – but mostly because he gives me room to grow, to express myself through my work, and to fulfill my life purpose.  In return, I do the same for him because we value the importance of self-actualization in... Continue Reading

May 14th, 2023

At this time of the year, when we just celebrated Mother’s Day and prepare to celebrate Father’s Day next month, it always brings to my mind a question that I remember from my youth.
