The Divine Plan

Do you believe in fate? I do. I believe that our life’s plans are already written for us and we’re merely following along in steps.

Moments of Weakness

To tend, unfailingly, unflinchingly, towards a goal, is the secret to success. ~ Anna Pavlova It’s the journey, not the destination. No one ever died of hard work. Success breeds success.
