I do not always have it together

It may come across as if I do, cute photos on social media, outings with friends, dinners etc. Friends say; you are doing so well or ask, how do you do it? My thoughts,  you have no idea!

Here are 13 things we should all start doing to, not only make ourselves better, but to improve the lives of those around us.
