    1. It is hard but there are areas that if you just keep going with the flow it will harm you or even take away from your happiness. That’s been my experience as I’ve been a ‘go with the flow’ kind of person too and in hindsight that was not the best decision in many areas. Thanks for sharing Jill and glad you found the suggestions helpful!

  5. Martha, You have shared so many helpful tips – along with your personal journey – which adds to the validity of what you are saying. I totally agree – that writing things down is so important – and it clears the “clutter” out of our mind. I have found that once I write it down – it seems a lot less overwhelming and manageable. Looking forward to more insightful posts…
