Thrive Logo.svg| Self Awareness

It can be concerning when we’re asked a question and our mind goes blank, or when we’re asked for our opinion but we’re not really sure what it is. When we’re not sure what we are thinking, it’s helpful to take the time to become aware of what is happening inside our mind. Through this topic we ‘find our mind’ and become self aware of our character, feelings, and thoughts.
