You Are Worth It.

As a life coach and personal trainer, one thing that astonishes me is that so many of my clients in both areas feel they “are not worth taking care of themselves”. The “why should I bother”s and the “no one cares, anyway”s leave me feeling sad. I wish I could make everyone see that there…
