She's a bit...let's say "confused"... on her "orientation", so to speak. And she doesn't always get the best
Think yourself out of it. That's a big statement, and it's not always easy to do. I myself have been having some trouble with that lately, truth be told. But I'm working on it. But it's true. It really is. How your life unfolds is 10% what happens to you. And 90% how
When I was younger I always did what I thought was expected of me. Both as a child and a young adult. Believe it or not, I was very shy back then, and not outspoken. I did what I was told...more or less. And don't get me wrong, at this point I'm
Balls Of Steel And Fury likes to say that his mantra is "Live and Let Die". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7aGAIWe3uE And while I wouldn't phrase it that way necessarily.....He's not wrong.

I've been listening and reading a lot of motivational things lately. I won't go into the details of why. This particular one is Les Brown speaking. You've probably never heard of him, but he's a pretty amazing guy. I hope to meet him someday. He had a very difficult life in his upbringing.
