Why is it sometimes so difficult for us to accept praise? We all crave it, but when it comes knocking we don’t know how to receive it.
Sometimes it is important to get a little uncomfortable before you get comfortable. So here is me taking baby steps, in putting myself out there.
This blog feels incomplete without paying tribute to the one person who occupies all my senses these days… my tiny bundle. He turns one today (whew…). So here are my key learnings from him over this year.
