    The Importance of Self Celebration.

    Do you ever say to yourself ‘hey! you did well today. I am proud of you and I am going to take you to dinner?” If you have, how did that feel? Did it feel better than when that same sentence was said to you by a loved one?

But, there is good news. ALL that STOPS today. Henceforth, you will celebrate yourself. The art of knowing yourself  A…
