Need to shed some stress in your life? Don’t we all!
Here is some advice from inspirational writer Lee Volpe.
Remember: What feels like forever is only just a moment.
Breathe in the quiet moments. You may hear the most.
Laugh. You have to sometimes.
Go find your own fun, your tribe of people, your favorite things … and spoil yourself!
Love yourself. Your beauty marks as well as your scars make you uniquely you. Our differences are what make us shine.
