To be nobody-but-yourself — in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. E.E. Cummings
Listen to your inner self!
During our busy year of meeting deadlines and juggling the demands and expectations of others and self, we can be left with little time for meaningful reflection of our lives.
After all, most of our energy is caught up in just keeping things going.
The advantage of the holiday period is that we get to have more relaxed time on our hands and this in turn connects us more to our inner selves.
