Your tomorrow starts today.
We sometimes let our busy schedules and/or tiredness interfere with getting certain things done. We will put things off until tomorrow however, when tomorrow arrives it’s always “tomorrow!”
If there is something you can complete today, DO IT!
The longer you push it off the longer it will take to accomplish.
You should build those up around you! Even Beyoncé and Jay- Z said it in their song, “Boss!”
We measure success by how many people successful next to you.
Here we say you broke if everybody is broke except for you.
Build each other up!

Some people will attempt to hide and ignore symptoms that point to mental health issues: he or she may be ashamed or don’t know how to handle it. According to Better Health Television, talking to your doctor or mental health professional about emotional difficulties is a positive step toward improving your mental health. A professional can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle. For example, he or she can improve your problem-solving skills, build and increase confidence, help you heal from the past, and set and achievie personal goals.

1.Did you make the decision to see a mental health professional on your own, or was it recommended?
