As you run around doing after Christmas shopping this week, have you remembered your favorite person? (You!) I know you do a lot for others in your life – your family and extended family, your co-workers or employees, those people who serve you in your favorite restaurants, cleaners, mail delivery people, etc. – but what about yourself?
