You should always be your unique and authentic self. “The authentic self is the you that can be found at your absolute core. It is the part of you not defined by your job, function or role.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
