Haven't you found in life that situations and relationships are made easier if you have a better understanding of those around you (especially those closest to you)? Of course!
When is the last time that you made a list of the things that are most important to you?
Take a moment and make that list - as you do, you'll gain a better understanding of self as well as be better equipped to deal with others and the stressful situations that become part of every day life.

Realistically, none of us are wearing just one hat in this life. We are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, daughters and sons, business owners and employees, etc... and when we are so busy juggling those many titles and the responsibilities that go with them, we sometimes lose sight of not only our professional goals, but we can lose sight of 'self' too. The further away we stray from what is important at our core, the more difficult day to day activities can become. We need to take time for ourselves and what is important to us. As we give ourselves this gift of time, we will find ourselves better equipped to give others what they need.
