My Recipe for Success: Commitment

My Recipe for Success: Everyone is different from one another. Therefore, everyone’s recipe for success is different. It is now day 36 of a diet commitment. Day 36 of a 70-day process that is.

The 54th Deadline: Guide

“I definitely need a guide of some sort to lead me on the right path for life’s complex journey.”  I am not an impulsive person. I do not rely on my instincts much, if at all.

The 54th Deadline: The Weight of the Matter

——————————————————————————————————————————————– The 54th Deadline: Life’s always going to give you another chance if you’re constantly persistent. ——————————————————————————————————————————————– Life certainly has been hard for me these past few weeks.
