Not Taking Everything Too Personally

Continuing down the path of playing catch up with my 2017 Reading Challenge, I switched up my earlier choice for my second book to finish in April from The Cleansweep Conspiracy by Chuck Waldron (which is a self published book) to The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz (which is an award-winning book).

Crunch Time for Writing Again

As we creep closer to midnight, I’m just now getting a chance to really sit down and gather my thoughts from the very ‘trying’ day.
