We should also always take time to celebrate our strengths. I will thus focus on strengths and how to make them work for you in the upcoming weeks.

I wanted it simple and straight to the point. A rose and the word yellow – a yellow rose.
I am not going to spend Valentine’s Day with any of my loved ones; I am not buying anything for anyone either.

I have thus only managed to work out three times instead of four. This sucks. And to be honest, I am very disappointed of myself. But this is no reason to put myself down.
