~Leo Buscaglia

Be yourself, no one else can do it...

This is not Fun

Forgive yourself. Move forward.

I've seen too many people beating themselves up over chloices they've made. They'd rather spend the rest of their lives miserable, agonizing over their choices, rather than learning from their actions and improving themselves.

Visualization is one of the keys to not only a successful journey, but to a successful life. Once you realize that you CAN do this, you start to reali...
