One of my guidelines is personal development is not a pursuit of perfection, and you guys will definitely see that see that as this all plays out. But, it is a pursuit of getting the results and creating the life that you want, as imperfect as we can possibly be. So there’s a great article, and it’s 12 Effects of Chronic Stress on Your Brain. Why are we talking about chronic stress when we’re talking about gratitude? Well here’s why.
