Defining "Change"

H – Honesty: Align your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Acknowledge and express your emotions authentically, without judgment.

H – Help: Recognize the power of seeking assistance. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness but a courageous step towards growth.

A – Adaptability: Embrace flexibility in your approach. Be willing to pivot and adjust course when necessary, embracing detours as part of the journey.

A – Acceptance: Embrace yourself unconditionally. True transformation begins with accepting yourself at every stage of the process.

N – NO: Set boundaries and prioritize self-care. Master the art of saying no to protect your well-being and honor your goals.
