Has Life ever smacked you hard enough to drop you down to your knees? And then kicked you in the teeth as were trying to collect your wits while wondering what the hell happened? I am sure you know the feeling. We all have. Life tests us on a daily basis. It is an essential part of our existence. And, the crux of the matter is – it’s hardship that brings out the best (or worst) in us. Well, pretty much like Leg Day. Leg Day (yes, it has its own capital letters) is a definite … [Read more...] about A TEST OF FORTITUDE
Let’s cut to the chase. I meet way too many people who are too quick to point the finger of blame at anyone or anything for whatever they don’t like in their lives.
