Do You Ever Get Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question finally getting tired of their own bullshit. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert ~ Have you ever experienced that moment when you have had it with your own B.S.? And with how your life is going – or not going? I have been there.

‎“We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success.” ~ Henry David Thoreau Anyone who knows me can tell you – I don’t embrace change all that easily.
