  2. Dear Deborah,

    I really like this article, it makes me think. I would say I am a happy and cheerful person, but sometimes I try really hard to be perfect and I get lost in details. I am a dreamer too, and I always think about the future, so being in the moment is hard for me sometimes.
    Do you have tips and tricks for this? Thank you!

    All the best,
    Suzie
