I have a habit of dispensing advice.
Sometimes (most of the time), the things I hear myself say end up being what I needed to hear.
Here are two gems I recently advised (myself).
1. Instead of coveting other people's talents and saying: "I wish I could . . . like that person" you should say: "What am I already good at that I that I can do better to help others."
2. Kids always need to feel special, but especially teenagers; because it's so easy for them to forget.
Good stuff. I hope I can remember this.
