Self-awareness is the art of being attentive and mindful of how our thought, emotions, and actions affect others, our surroundings, and ourselves. Although the concept can seem self-righteous, it is a valuable tool for navigating the world.
Thought for the week

Without that, we can succumb to our impulses and act rashly, leading to regrettable consequences.
