  • First of all, many of us are told rather than asked what we want, or even what we feel, growing up, so we grow up detached from our true thoughts and feelings. Still, there are probably things that make you smile, make your eyes light up, make your heart beat a little faster or give you that calm, connected feeling.

    If you can't think of anything at all that makes you happy, think back to what made you happy as a kid. Do you connect emotionally with music or dance, craft projects, pets or the great outdoors? Or are you so overwhelmed by the list of shoulds and have-tos that you just need to cut back on obligations to make a little breathing room for you?

    This is our one shot at life. Don't waste it living the life someone else wants you to have. - by WINDSWEPTACRES
