Thought for the Day/Week/Month
If we are dissatisfied with our lives, we are the only ones who can change it. We do so by first; identifying the ‘roles’ we fulfill in our life. We are all employees, neighbors, siblings, parents, tenants, etc. Life is about relationships. Once we identify the ‘roles’; we can identify the expectations of those ‘roles’ and relationships. This helps us set goals for balance in every aspect of our life.
