Second Starts are Good

So, Here it is. . .
Wow, it is amazing how easy it is to fall into old habits. A couple weeks ago I went on vacation and wallowed in my old ways and enjoyed every minute of it. I promised myself this would be it. I would remain focused and get back on the horse.... Read more
Sure, I had promised myself that I was going to get back on the horse and stay focused. It was only that mindset that had gotten me the results I do have. So, it must be that same determination and focus that can get me back on that same raod.... Read more
