Written for the daily renewal of my mind. To be read upon rising, in the midday, and at bedtime. I AM a living being with power and a plan for my life. I WILL NOT DEVIATE from it. My plan is to radiate health. I am becoming more vibrant every day with each day’s positive choices….

Working the Plan: On Consistency

“Consistency carries the day.”  ~Rich Roll This post is about becoming steadfast.  Dependable to oneself.  Beginning every day with a purpose, a planned series of actions and plans for what do when external circumstances go awry.  It’s even more an act of faith to be consistent in action when we’ve yet to see the fruits…
