If you're a giver, setting boundaries is imperative...

If you're a giver, it is important to set healthy boundaries, boundaries associated with how much you give to others and to whom you lavish your time and energy. Takers will never learn to give if you give endlessly, giving until you have nothing left for yourself, and giving to those who do not appreciate what you give them. You deserve respect and appreciation, don't be afraid to ask for what YOU need so you can keep on giving.

Well, it seems my professional relationship with facebook has come to an end...

For all the beautiful people who were enjoying my daily inspirational posts on facebook, I hope we can continue sharing insights, joy and positivity in this space from now on.

Twice during 2022, facebook's bots and algorithms blocked my use of my professional spiritual counsellor page, stopping me from logging in and consequently adding new posts. Luckily, the first episode, several months ago, was remedied but a few days ago, the two-step-verification system began preventing my entry into fb again and it seems that this issue may be an ongoing one. Recently Facebook fired many of their workers (following in the footsteps of Twitter and Musk), and it appears that these fb system malfunctions are likely to become commonplace. Instead of waiting for facebook to fix these issues (and rid their site of scammers), I decided it was best to move my professional page here, this time for good (as you may have noticed, I gave this a go a while back but went back to facebook to reconnect with my fb followers).

I hope you find this a safe space to share your personal insights and responses to my posts and look forward to a long and wonderful time exchanging information, videos, links and much more.

love and best wishes, Sarina <3

... And, of course, I will continue to share the occasional adorable animal pic and funny posts to add a little fun and smiles to our week. :)
