HAPPINESS

Are you happy? Before you answer that question, I want you to really think about it. Are you TRULY happy within? You know the truth.


Do you pretend like everything is okay when others are around? Deep down inside, you haven't been happy for a long time. You don't want anybody to know what's really going on. I mean, you have an image to uphold, right? Why are you cheating yourself? Forget about image! Your happiness is more important than that.


Is it fair that you have to pretend, when on the inside, you feel lonely, unloved, and unappreciated? You're always there for others. You're always making things right. You're always the one others call on. You're always cleaning up other people's mess. And the list goes on and on. Enough is enough! You've got to get real with yourself. You've got to take good care of yourself. You've got to learn how to balance your life so that you're not putting yourself on the back burner. You're important! You count!


Please give this some thought. Life is a gift! It's time to unwrap that gift and start living for YOU! This is a new year. It's time for some changes in your life. LIVE! Be Free! Love Yourself! Be Strong! You can do it!
