    Love yourself first. Be responsible for your own happiness. Embrace your inner child and go on playdates. Create a list of things that fill you up. Do at least one thing a day.

    Know Your Why

    People with purpose have better health outcomes, more resilience and joy.  What’s your North Star? Be your purpose. Stay open. Choose peace. Stay hopeful.
