One of the key takeaways from the pandemic is that we need to put ourselves first. We need to prioritize our mental health, and we need to put the habits that do not serve us into the trash can; we need to make new friends that inspire us, not weigh us down. We need to focus on living our life to the fullest, which means appreciating even the tiniest things that put a smile on our face.
“Get so used to taking care of yourself that doing otherwise feels unbearably weird.” – Shannon Hilson
Like in American Football, a team fights for the ground they make for every yard of play, you should not focus on the end product in your life. Instead, take small incremental steps to improve yourself in your life and at work, to get rid of the habits that hold you back, and making the right decisions in the moments that matter.

Mistakes happen like it or not. It’s a part of life. It’s what makes us human. What is not right though is people’s inability to say sorry when they’ve messed up. That creates even more anger and frustration for the other person. Be mindful and start saying sorry if you want to build bridges, and let your ego sleep.
“Being able to say ‘I am sorry’ makes a difference in your life. It is the key that opens the cage of guilt.” – Nansia Movidi
