Tags:

I was on the phone with a client-friend the other day. We were chatting about her goals and what changes she needs to make in order to feel better about her life & her progress. She said, "I need to stop telling myself that everything is a special occasion". What she meant was, "I need to stop making everything special also mean overindulging and/or drinking".
