As Promised Here’s Today’s Fitness Update

I did it, y'all. I finally managed to squeeze in a normal workout (for me) and it felt great! My body is sore and my head hurts a little, but I haven't felt this good in quite some time. I'm not exactly on track with regards to my diet goals yet, but I'll provide a quick breakdown of the food/meals I ate today anyways. As promised [...]

God, Universe, Prayer, Meditation, Faith, Belief, And The Quest For Inner Peace

Doing nothing will surely get you to where you’re going, if, of course, where you’re going is nowhere. Having a long list of ideas is both useless and pointless, if you never take action to bring anything into fruition.

Finding And Cultivating Purpose: The Endless Journey

Purpose. A small word with huge meaning, am I right? It's an aspect of life that many people don't even consider, while others are tormented with on a daily basis. What is purpose, then?
