Ready to upgrade your life, one area at a time?

You’ve come to the right place.

 

Hi. I’m Lidiya K.

If you aren’t satisfied with your current lifestyle, if you aren’t as productive as you want to be, if you can’t seem to build the discipline required to get further in life, if you can’t take your online business off the ground…that’s alright.

You are not the problem. Your mindset and system are.

I believe that with a smart approach, good strategy, action plan, optimized environment, and consistency, pretty much anything is achievable.

If other people are living the ideal lifestyle, so can you!

 

How Let’s Reach SuccessΒ  Can Help You

let's reach success letsreachsuccess.com blog podcast logo lidiya k

With anything I publish on Let’s Reach Success, I aim at making your journey to personal, spiritual and business growth easier.

You can use this blog as a personal guide with the advice, tips, ideas and opinion you’ll find on how to get 1% better every day, by changing our way of thinking, giving up some activities and habits and picking up new ones.

There are many guest posts too, as I like seeing other points of view and let people share their life lessons.

You’ll often see me talk about some of the most successful entrepreneurs that are crushing it in every possible way. I like to study their habits, daily rituals and how they do business, and turn it into practical blog posts (or talk about it on the podcast).

There’s a lot to learn from others who’ve already succeeded.

About Lidiya

barcelona
Somewhere on a beach in Barcelona.

I’m a blogger, author and podcaster in the fields of self-improvement, life hacking and entrepreneurship. I also freelance, publish books, run this site, learn the ins and outs of Internet Marketing and work on improving myself daily.

I found my passion – personal development – and combined it with the best medium for me – writing. That’s how I turned what I love doing into a career and became my own boss.

Over time, after trying things, learning how to manage my time and money, saying ‘no’ way more often and having a clear vision of how exactly I want my life to look like, I became location independent (moved to Amsterdam – my favorite city), and able to work while traveling (I’m off to Thailand for a few weeks soon, and my laptop is in my backpack in the picture on the left).

I can call myself a lifestyle designer now, but it all began with personal development. So yes, change does begin on the inside.

I believe that anyone can achieve the ultimate freedom, which is doing what you love for a living, reclaiming your time and spending it in productive and enjoyable ways, doing meaningful work, building better habits and staying focused on an end goal, while living every daily slowly and consciously.

Enjoying this?

  1. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
    First, good luck with the speech. 7 minutes really do sound a bit challenging but I’m sure you’ll do just fine. The topic of the speech is wonderful and important and I see you have a lot of experience in that. You sound so determined and motivated.
    I think that reading that book really was a crucial point in your self-improvement. I also realize different important things in my life by reading something or watching something motivational. Even if the ideas are not the same, somehow they boost my brain activity and productivity and there it is… a new idea is born.
    You’ve been through challenging moments, but it was necessary so that you can become the person you are today – with purpose, specific goals and desire to go on.
    I’d love to hear your speech so if you have a video of it later, feel free to put the link here so that I can see it, and the other readers as well.
    Take care!

  2. I’m actually giving my next speech for Toastmasters on motivation. My goal for the speech is to help my audience better understand motivation and to inspire them to achieve whatever goals they may have. I have to do this in under 7 minutes which I find challenging but I know it can be done. I enjoy reading your blog post and I am finding it very useful in helping me organize my speech. I am currently on a journey to achieve success in my life and have been for a while. I am 25 and have struggled along the way staying motivated with my goals and trying to figure out what it is that will make me truly happy. It wasn’t until recently I bought a book, Man 2.0:Engineering The Alpha, which helped put my ideas into perspective for me. From this book I realized that while I was trying to achieve my personal goals, excersice,fitness,education, etc. I was always more concerned with becoming what I thought would make me happy. I was comparing my progress to others success in that particular area when I should have been more concerned with myself. By comparing myself to others I wasn’t realizing that I was inhibiting myself from becoming the most evolved person I could become and living up to my true potential. You can’t be better than everyone else because we are all different and unique and must set out to blaze our own path. Like I mentioned earlier I’ve been on this journey for a while but now things are starting to look up and I’m excited about tomorrow.

  3. It was lovely to see your compliment, your “like”, in Shadows of Love earlier today. Thank you ever so much!

  4. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog and,by so doing, introducing me to yours. Looks like it’s full of great stuff. And by the way, keep going on your book. As I’ve found from the response to mine, subjects related to finding inspiration for a good life, or as in mine, finding the peace and contentment of joy, are a most important…and popular…subject.

    1. Thank you too for commenting! Contentment, peace, harmony and happiness are also some of the main subjects I write and think about. Without inner substance, we are empty. I hope everyone can reach these simple and beautiful states and manages to remain there.

      1. Hi Lidiya,

        I love that you mentioned the importance of having inner substance (feeding your inner spirit man). Our society is so focused on the tangible that our spiritual life and personal self-development gets neglected for the more rational things. But you are right, it is from what’s inside of us that true creativity springs and makes us a more vibrant person and an asset to society. I was just stopping by to peruse your content again. Good stuff! Feel free to visit my site sometime at astoiclife.com. Also, I’m considering submitting an article, do you still take submissions?

        1. Hey there,

          Thanks for sharing that and glad you agree with me.

          I always welcome guest writers, sure. Feel free to send me a draft at lidiya@letsreachsuccess.com when you feel like.
          You can read the requirements at the Contribute tab from the top menu.

          Best,
          Lidiya

  5. Hi! I definetly identify with you on some of the above, I too have friends but I can probably count 1 or 2 that actually have the same interests as me πŸ™‚ But hey, as long as we are living authentically who cares right! x MissHappySpirits

    1. Thank you so much, Clarabelle! I’m so glad you like my posts. I’ll be posting many more so visit my blog whenever you can.
      Have a great day πŸ™‚

  6. Thanks for liking Linda’s post on my blog! It’s fantastic to meet someone who wants to inspire others! πŸ˜€ I will definitely follow your blog!

  7. Thanks for stopping by and liking my Sunday Post. You have some interesting views / experiences. Be well and enjoy life.

  8. Lidiya –

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, liking it and following it.

    My goal with my blog is to spread some motivational quotes and/or stories to inspire others much like they have inspired me. I hope they have done that with you.

    Keep up the good work with your blog and your writing.

    Positive wishes to you!

    1. Thank you too for visiting my blog!
      It’s great that you have such a purpose with your blog – to inspire and motivate. Many of my future posts will be on that subject. People nowadays do need someone to believe in them, to inspire and to share his experience.

  9. thanks for stopping by dude πŸ™‚ nice to meet u.. I am also planning to publish a book of poems.. πŸ™‚

  10. Hello, Thanx for dropping by my blog. I read some of your post and found I can relate. So I’ve started to follow. Hope to read more soon πŸ™‚

  11. What an interesting person you are…. finding your way on the journey of a lifetime. thank you for stopping by just fuffy…. as I find my path also.

  12. Hi Lidiya, thanks for liking my post πŸ™‚ How surprising that I found that we have a lot in common from your list above ! except the last item, Peter Pan and I haven’t started a book yet… I learn German by myself, and only been a vegetarian for about a year. Other than these, all are the same πŸ˜›

    1. Hi! Thank you for commenting. It’s wonderful to meet like-minded people. Good luck with your blog and every project in your life.
      Take care.

    1. Thank you for sharing your opinion, David! I appreciate it!
      But I think you haven’t ckecked my posts, because otherwise you would know that I also talk a lot about gratitude, inner realization, love, fear, doubt, peace, relaxation and so om. And I’ve noticed that so many people nowadays don’t believe in themselves and that prevents them from living their life. I think everyone is capable of so much and can be both successful and yet a good person, who lives to help others and is full of gratitude.
      You say it all sounds exhausting, but that is only if we think of success as a race, a fight. And I don’t like these words, at least not in their general meaning.

      1. I did, I did, I promise – I read loads of your posts. You’re right, of course – it’s the race to be successful that is so exhausting. Luckily, I am at peace with the inner realisation that ‘Love’ – the reaching out and ‘Gratitude’ – the accepting in, take no physical effort and you don’t need to take vitamin supplements or drink expensive bottles of water.
        You may have noticed (really?) that I enjoy taking a slightly cynical approach – but don’t let that fool you! I did enjoy your blog! It gave me lots to indulge myself with. As long as I don’t have to go to the gym, I’m more than happy to sit here and read about people who do.

      2. Well, I guess I just jumped to a conclusion. Sorry for that πŸ˜€
        We’re clear now and I’m happy to see that you undestand what I said perfeclty well.
        Thanks again for sharing your thoughts. I’m so glad you took time to read my posts.

  13. Hi Lidiya, Thanks for liking my post. I was very interest in reading about you. We have a lot in common! Thank you for your inspiring and motivational posts, they are a delight to read. Thank you! πŸ™‚

  14. Hi Lidiya, When I clicked on “like” exactly 33 others had already liked your great article – and then when I went to “comments” – exactly 44 others had commented before me πŸ™‚ I love the double and triple digits! Cheers! Happy to be on this journey together wit you! tomas ☼

    1. Just noticed it πŸ˜€ But thank you for attention. I appreciate every ‘like’ and comment I receive.
      Your blog is wonderful, so much inspiration in one person is a rare thing nowadays. So keep that and continue to inspire others as well.

  15. Dear Lidiya
    Thank you very much for stopping by my blog and liked my post. I am truly impressed reading about you. Very inspiring and I look forward to reading your posts. πŸ™‚
    Warm hugs
    Karina

  16. Lidiya, keep on writing! You are inspiring many people and making a difference in their lives–mine included. Thanks so much.

    Thanks also for the time visiting my blog.

    1. Thank you for recommending that. I’ve been following it for a long time now and find Jeff’s posts really motivational.

  17. Thank you very visiting and following me on twitter, I will follow you too. I like your way of thinking. it is very inspiring!

  18. Thanks for visiting the Jenn stories! I’m glad you found something you liked. Thanks for sharing your stories with the world as well.

    1. Thank you so much. This is a wonderful thing to hear and although I wouldn’t say so, I take it as the motivation I need to continue writing.
      Have a great day!

  19. Hi Lidiya, Thank you so much for stopping by at my blog. Your work is truly very inspiring and encouraging! Keep it going πŸ™‚ thanks!

  20. Hi, Lidya,
    thanks for stopping by my blog and thus given me the chance to find yours.
    I absolutely love how simple you put into words and explain issues that may seem big or overwhelming. Keep up the great job of inspiring us:)
    Laura

  21. Great writing, Lidiya, and it looks like you already ARE in business on the Internet!
    Thanks for your kind words!
    Keep up the great work!

  22. Wow! This blog seems really interesting to read about I guess. I’ll be looking forward to read your posts, Lidiya. Have a good day. God bless. Cheers!!

    Rahul

  23. Thanks for taking the time to drop by my blog and like one of the posts. I hope you get your book finished. There’s nothing quite like holding that first copy in your hand.

    God’s best to you.

  24. I really love the main topics of your blog, very inspirational for a life full of smiles =) Keep going and never lose your positive outlook =)

  25. Wow great blog. Thank you for liking mine. Just know it’s nothing wrong with being different because in reality none of us are the same we all are different. I am looking forward to staying connected to you we have a lot in common. Have a blessed day…

    1. Thank you for the kind words! My goal is to share my ideas and thoughts, help and inspire others. If I’m doin it, I’ll be more than happy.

  26. Blessings Lidiya,

    I read your about page and found it truly interesting. I see that you began to write a book last year. That is really awesome. I began writing my first book almost three years ago and it is being printed right now. The name of it is Rock Bottom, it’s my story from early childhood growing into a man. I can’t believe it, I am truly excited about it especially when I found out it is going to be printed in foreign languages. Talk about overwhelming and completely amazed.

    I would like to share the greatest advice I ever received about writhing a book. A wise man once told me to pray before writing and to only write when you feel inspired. I received it in great humility. I recently began my second book and it is going very well. I hope that it all comes together for you. That is awesome girl. Keep the faith and keep up the good work.

    If you have any questions regarding the book, feel free to ask. Many blessings to you and yours.

    Youth leader,
    Michael

    1. Congrats on having your book printed. It sound like a wonderful emotion. I’m sure it is interesting and profound, full of inspiration, and I hope it can get to many people.
      Thanks for the advice. I rarely receive such great ones and will definitely have it in mind.
      Thanks for the support as well. It’s always better to have someone to ask.
      Take care!

  27. Hey there Lidiya! You liked my post about my dog going vegan, so I wanted to check out your blog and say, ‘Hi!’ I’ve just read your about page, and I love the positive, optimistic nature of your blog. The main topics you write about are certainly interesting to me. I’m also excited to see that you’re a vegetarian. I’ve been vegan for a year and a half now, and I like connecting to others on a similar path. I also found the random things about you interesting. We have much in common! I’m amazed that you taught yourself Italian. I think that’s amazing! It’s wonderful to e-meet you and I look forward to getting to know you better. Celeste πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Celeste! You too seem like a positive and enthusiastic person who has many interesting things to say. And it’s pleasure for me to meet people with similar interest and ideas as well.
      I’ll be checking out your blog and we will support each other through our blog adventure πŸ˜€

  28. Lidiya, thanks for stopping by Lessons by Heart, which led me here. I’ll be back to look around. As a new blogger, there is so much to learn, so much to figure out as to purpose and direction. My blog took off like a rocket, and it’s a bit overwhelming. Can’t wait to see what God has in mind!

    Tami

    Praise Jesus!

    1. Thank you, Tami! I’m happy we found each other and my blog made an impression on you. It’s always better to have support in what you do.
      Good luck with your blog and stay positive.

      1. You really deserve it. Your blog is absolutely brilliant and it inspires me very much.
        I wish you the best in health and happiness πŸ™‚

  29. Hi Lidiya! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Like everybody in this comment thread says, your posts are very inspiring and what I love about them is that they actually make the reader think and reflect. But what amazes me the most is that you seem to be pretty young and the “maturity” of your writing style is quite advanced. Congratulations on starting your first book and hope to be in touch with you through our blogs… Alan

    1. It’s so good to hear that it makes the reader think and reflect. Thank you for commenting and giving me motivation to continue writing πŸ™‚

  30. Hi Lidiya!

    I think you have a great blog going. And your potential for book making is not “minimal”. Your style of writing will immediately endear you to the reading public. I just thought you should know that your prospects in writing and perhaps speaking is limitless. Keep it going! I haven’t come across a blog like yours for a while. (In spite of the long post, it “manages” to get a complete read). Well done and God bless you.

    1. Thank you! I need to hear that from time to time to boost my confidence and to continue making content.
      I appreciate the support. It’s wonderful to see people that think I can make a difference.
      Peace!

      1. You are welcome. And I must say that you are a much better writer than I am. Clarity is power! You will definitely make a difference in life. Keep moving forward.

        1. I can’t agree here. You write on such profound subjects and have done a great job.
          And as I think of it a writer can’t be compared to another one. They both have the same mission and purpose, but use different words and methods, combine them in unusual ways.
          We are both on a spiritual journey here and want to touch and inspire others while finding ourselves too.
          So keep up the good work and stay inspired πŸ™‚

          1. Thank you.
            Anyways, I’m learning a lot from your writing style.
            Just finished a book by John Maxwell, Everybody Communicates, Few Connects. You can check my review on goodreads.com by typing the name Olamide OPEYEMI.
            Let’s keep getting better.
            Cheers.

  31. You just introduced yourself to me and already i know I want to follow you. “A New Philosophy on Living”. How absolutely perfect. I read the post and knew right away that we are on the same pathway to social progress. My daughter has changed the way I view the world. She is all about organic food, living on the barest essentials, and raising her children to view the world and life as a journey into social progress, hence the subtitle of my blog. One person and their ideas can change the world.

    1. You’ve raised a great daughter. And it’s wonderful that you follow this lifestyle. We can support each other. I’ll be writing more posts on the subject.
      Have a great day!

  32. So glad you popped in… What a fabulous site you have! Very encouraging – simply lovely!

  33. I so love what you said about Peter Pan! I too don’t wish to grow up. Lol
    You sound beautiful and full of life. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great week Hugs Paula xxx

  34. thanks for reading my story i Want to Live! I read through you blog and found you interesting and inspiring and look forward to reading more from you.

    1. Thank you, Lori! I’m glad you liked what you saw here.
      Have a great day! I look forward to reading your posts.

  35. Thanks for liking my blog at http://thepfjournal.wordpress.com (I only put the link because I have quite a few and thought the automatic connection wordpress makes might not connect you to the one you liked). I’m quite impressed with your about page. You have some good thoughts and are quite a good writer. I appreciate you wanting to “be more” than what life throws at you. Press on… seek for Truth!

    1. Thank you for the kind words! I really believe everyone can be much more than he thinks he is, but few realize that.
      I’ll be visiting your blog to check your new posts.
      Have a great week and take care!

  36. love your outlook! πŸ™‚ oh and i just realized i didn’t have a follow button on my blog so if you want to get future updates in your reader from me that’s good place to start πŸ™‚

      1. you’re welcome. and glad to hear it :). i emailed you the other day about the followups you’re getting. did you get it?

        1. I subscribed with email so now I got it. Thanks for the newsletter.

  37. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you there quite often.
    I love your space here and can totally identify with your profile. It is like you are describing my life.
    πŸ™‚

  38. Well Lidiya, I can see why you visited my blog; thank you. I am so glad you did. We have much in common and share some of the same dreams, hopes, and desires in life and for those around us.
    Looking forward to browsing and reading more of your posts.
    Very best wishes to you. πŸ™‚

  39. Hi Lydia. thanks for following me on Twitter.

    Here is a little something I wish I would have taken to heart when I was your age… “can’t means won’t”.

    Grace and peace,
    Karl

  40. Hi Lidiya…….thanks for stopping by “Unwalled”……I’m happy that my post “Who are You Behind Closed Doors” was inspiring to you……you’re welcome to visit again…….Kim

  41. I thank you for following my blog; raggz2baggz. I am now following yours. After scanning through several of you posts and your pages I am going to enjoy reading the new inspirations you write. I do have one big question. What advice would you give a hobbyist, who like most others, has an extremely large ‘stash’ of supplies? Most of us tell people we aren’t hoarders. What do you think?
    Until next time, Cathy the Bagg Lady
    http://raggz2baggz.com

    1. As I understood from your blog all the supplies you have are something you make designs of. Which is wonderful. My mother too has an Etsy shop and I can tell you that the house looks like a place of a creative person, I think you know what I mean πŸ˜€
      You said it yourself, you’re a hobbyist. As long as you don’t keep unneeded stuff in your home and don’t pile up hundreds of belonging, it’s fine.
      Thank you for the comment and the follow. I always enjoy communicating with positive creative people who are always inspired.
      Take care!

    1. Thank you, Arianna! It’s nice to meet other people who are positive and try to find the inspiration in everything. We’ll keep in touch through our blogs.

    1. Thank you for commenting and offering ways to contact you. I enjoyed your articles and will be stopping by your blog often to see the new ones.

  43. “What you are today is a result of every decision and action of yours through the years.”….That’s interesting, cos I have penciled down this fact for a future post. Hmnnn…same line of thoughts… that’s what i call “blog coincidence”… πŸ™‚

    1. Hello, Michael. I’m glad you enjoyed my words. I really hope you don’t mean that this is any kind of plagiarism. This is a common phrase and that is just how I formulated it.
      Anyways, I find your blog very interesting and inspiring. Thanks for stopping by here and commenting.
      Peace.

      1. Plagiarism? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Far from it. I have not even done the post πŸ™‚ Moreover, mine is going to be a personal case study. Thanks a lot for your kind words about my blog. I hope you will find More time regularly to read what I have to share. **hugs**

  44. Thanks so much for visiting the Jenn stories! I think you’re right–we do have a lot in common. All the best to you!

  45. Hi Lidiya. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my post! Setting goals is the easy part, isn’t it? It’s the day-to-day effort to meet those goals that’s hard. Don’t feel “weird” over not being like everybody else — rather, we should celebrate our differences and rejoice that we’re not all carbon copies! Now I’m off to browse your posts!

  46. Hi Lidiya, thanks for the visit. I share some of your views on staying positive and life in general. Hope we can share our experiences. Looking forward to see more posts and more inspiration.

  47. Hi Lidiya, Its great to meet you on here, So pleased you visited my blog and thanks for the like. Looking forward to getting to know you through your writing. I’m going to enjoy reading your blog.
    Hope to speak soon, my warmest regards, James πŸ˜‰

    They are empowering

  50. Hi Lidiya, thanks for stopping by and liking my post. It’s great stuff you have here and reading this “about” alone is inspiring πŸ˜€ I will be visiting again to read what’s in store (5.30am here) πŸ˜‰

  51. You have a good outlook on life and great goals. If you maintain that positive attitude – there’s nothing you won’t be able to do.

  52. Hello Lidiya,

    Wow! I was reading your page and noticed that you live by the sea and that you are Bulgarian. How interesting. I’ve never met a Bulgarian woman in my life. So obviously you aren’t in the United States. This is quite unreal girl, think about it, I live in Kansas. Just outside Kansas City as matter of fact. Maybe you have heard of it and you are in Bulgaria I take it. Is English common there? This is really cool, many blessings to you.

    1. Well, the chance to have met a Bulgarian woman in your life is quite small πŸ˜€
      Of course I’ve heard of Kansas. I’m sure it’s a great place to live.
      English is as common here as in other European countries. Many people know it quite well as the tourism here is growing. The economical situation though isn’t very bright.

      1. Blessings Lidiya,

        Well, I guess I missed your response to my question. My apologies, however, I do feel in my heart that it was the Lord speaking to you encouraging you to step outside of your comfort zone because you have a gift, hoping you would step out in faith that you may see it even clearer.

        Anyway, I understand that you will be busy, I know how that is for real. Thanks for sharing the info about your country, it’s truly intriguing.

        In the gym it’s nothing but determination girl. People look at me and my buddy crazy. My workout is called animal for a reason. I am filled with joy unspeakable that we have had the opportunity to get to know one another a little. You have been a blessing in my life. Thank you.

        I’m glad the prayer hit you in the heart, the Lord knows what we need before we do and that is why I prayed for you, He revealed it to me. Have a wonderful day and thank you for the compliments, I am doing the best I can. I pray that the Lords blessings continue to rain upon you as you walk this journey Lidiya.

        Michael,

      2. Thank you too for all the great things you say about me.
        I believe we’ll get to know each other more through our blogs. πŸ™‚
        Take care!

  53. Hello, I nominated you for the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ because I enjoy reading your blog. Please dont feel obliged to reply or forward on the award if you dont wish too, I just wanted to let people know that I enjoy your words. Check it out here: http://misshappyspirits.com/
    LOVE + KINDNESS to you

    1. Thanks! I’m honoured to receive it. And to hear that you enjoy my blog.
      Love and kindness to you too! Always stay positive and inspired πŸ™‚

  54. Hi there!
    Seems like we have a whole bunch of things common, including writing and learning languages (mine is Japanese) and psych and reading.
    Phew.
    What’s your work-in-progress-about? πŸ™‚

    1. Nice to meet you then πŸ™‚ It’s great to meet people with similar interests.
      Still haven’t told anyone about the project and what it’s about. I guess I’m not ready to say anything before it’s finished. But for now I’m devoting more time to my blog and other stuff.

  55. Lidiya, thank you for providing nourishment and inspiration. You are a bright light showing the way. Thank you for visiting my blog!

  56. Hi Lydia, congratulations on a Blog where the content has some real meaning behind it. I’ve just started doing the same. I think there comes a time where it is ones duty to share ones best and highest ideals in whichever form is appropriate, in our case blogging. Best of luck*

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoy my blog.
      And I definitely agree with you on that. No one should keep his thoughts, ideas, etc. in his mind. There are many ways to share them with the world and find like-minded people with whom to turn them into something even more powerful. Mine is writing.
      Good luck to you too. We’ll keep in touch through our blogs.

  57. Hi Lidiya. Sadly I’m beyond help writing is the only way to keep my sanity. I’ve made too many mistakes to worry about any more. Thank you so much for liking my poem ‘ Friends Had Said!’ Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.

    1. Thank you too for the visit.
      I understand you. Writing to me is theraphy, hobby, well spent time and many other things. After that I feel so much better.
      Take care!

  58. A wonderful and thoughtful piece Lidiya. You have learned much. And taught the rest of us.

  59. I’m so glad I’ve found your blog. Keep doing what you’re doing! πŸ™‚

  60. Hello Lidiya! I look forward to really diving into your blog. Also, thank you for following my blog at Faith1st Ministries. I hope it has and will continue to be a major blessing in your life. May God richly bless you as you continue to write and blog. Please continue with us on this journey and remember to have Faith 1st because the “just shall live by his faith.” — Sebastian

  61. Thanks for liking my post, The Pain of the Entrepreneur, Lidiya. I am glad to be connected with someone so like minded. I look forward to reading more πŸ™‚

  62. I can relate to you soo well! Most of the descriptions on the list fit to me as well and I am really glad to have found your blog πŸ™‚

  63. I nominated YOU for the Triple Bouquet Award which is The Best Moment Award, The Most Versatile Blogger Award and Sunshine Award. Congratulations!! Come on down by clicking here, http://wp.me/s3ia4v-1187 to collect your awards along with instructions on accepting said awards …which means a little bit of homework to follow said rules.
    Whispering Insights aka Oliana Kim

  64. Indeed, only a ‘a little’ people who intentionally develop into complete human beings. You’re a ‘a little’ it. I hope you got a lot of intuition to continue sharing. Several months later, I was bored in developing myrself, do not open the blog, and then back again. These events are always repeated. Human, is not it? I am sorry for my bad English. I am glad to know you …. πŸ™‚

    1. Of course I will accept it! Thank you so much, that just made my day. It’s great to know that people care about what I have to say and like my work.

  65. Lidiya,
    You haven’t posted in awhile and I was concerned that you are alright. I believe you live in Bulgaria so I was wondering if there were any messages you would like me to convey. What is the situation in Bulgaria like?
    Thank you,
    Jerry

    1. Thank you for asking, Jerry! Everything is alright, I’m back now. I just had a summer job in a resort near my city and didn’t have time to write or be online. I missed it and can’t wait to get back on track. How are things with you?

  66. You have a beautiful and elegant style of writing. I like how you address issues that are normally “swept underneath the rug,” so to speak. You also put an interesting spin on certain topics. Will enjoy following!

  67. Most people probably think you are “strange” because you intimidate them. It’s scary for people to think there is a possibility to live life fully, from a happy heart. Keep being exactly who you are because the world needs more people like you!! And when you are truly authentic in your living and your loving, you will eventually discover that like-minded people will connect with you. I used to “dampen my light” so others wouldn’t feel jealously or fear; but it was when I let my light shine fully with hope and grace that I discovered who I am meant to be in my life. And I can finally say that I am surrounded by 7 true friends who understand me and accept the all of me (but it wasn’t until my late 30’s that this happened!). You are an inspiring, beautiful soul. Never lose sight of that!!

    1. Beautiful words! I’m on the same opinion and at the beginning it was a bit hard but now I know how to be who I am and to let my shine light! Thanks for the encouragement !

  68. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog, and for liking it! I love your philosophy and try to keep myself focused on the same things as you. Being strange is just being different to people who are afraid to be themselves. I’m proud of my oddity! Keep at it.

  69. Hi Lidiya,

    Found you because you liked a post on my on-line training diary (http://yotg.net). Thanks!
    I think our blogs are similar, in that both are about discovering yourself. In my case, the growth is focused around one specific aim: mastering Olympic pistol shooting. The deep issues, however, are universal: how do we improve, how do we overcome our current limitations, how do we fully realize (as in make real in the world) who and what we are, removing the barriers which we place in our path…

    Please check back in with me every now and then; it makes a big difference to me if I think my daily notes from my travel can help others on their journey. I’ll try to do the same for you.

    Best!

    Glenn (@yearotg)

    1. I love meeting people here who are on another journey of their own but we still have similar goals, fears, experiences and so on. Thank you for letting me know because I actually read only one of your posts. It will be great to follow each other’s improvement and be supportive.
      Take care and good luck!

  70. Hi Lidiya! Thanks for liking my post (“Incomplete.” on joiningthehumanrace). I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog thus far, and will continue viewing your posts. Your words are inspiring! Just wanted to leave this note of encouragement as you experience life and share your story with us.

  71. Assuming that you were born and grew up on the coast of the Black Sea, you have an astonishing command of English. How did that come about? Two years of my life were spent on the southern shores of the Black Sea. That was about 50 years ago.

    1. Thank you! Well I graduated from an English High School but have been learning english years before that. I would say it’s all a matter of interest. I love foreign languages and think that if I like it enough and am interested in the country too, I can learn whichever language I want. And last but not least, life without english is unthinkable. Unless I only want to communicate with people from my country.

  72. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post ’embrace who you are’. Reading about you I realize we have a lot in common and will enjoy following your blog.

  73. Very nice about page. Your topics are perfect, I can relate. I was an underachiever in school, my nickname was dumb-dumb and I was placed in the bottom class in high school. Next month my first book will be published. So, yes, each day is a new day to start over, and where you are at today is a result of every decision you ever made. Go for it!

    1. Hi, Jim! Thanks for visiting my blog. Your story sounds like a perfect example of what success really is. Seems like you found your passion, did all the hard work, didn’t give up and now it’s time to enjoy the results.

  74. Hey Lidiya,
    how are you? I loved reading your about page, we share a lot of thoughts about happiness and personal development πŸ™‚
    Thank you very much for liking http://gammagamification.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/remember-happiness-today-day-09/ by the way!
    Maybe you want to answer my key questions to happiness which you can find at the end of the following post: http://gammagamification.wordpress.com/2013/09/15/a-sketch-of-the-face-of-happiness-part-i/
    Would be glad to be able to read your answers πŸ™‚
    Have a great day,
    Chris

      1. Hey Lidiya, thank you so much again for answering my questions πŸ™‚ you might want to join my remember happiness today daily question series? πŸ™‚

        1. I might do later on. I really appreciate what you’re doing through your blog. Your posts are so positive and aim to include more people. Good luck with that!

  75. Hi Lidiya. So nice to meet you you.Well I have always taken the wrong road. Writing is the only way I have stayed sane. I to Like Italy. But I can only speak English, would love to learn Italian such a lovely romantic language, so like their music as well. Thank you so much for liking my poem ‘ remorse.’ Best Wishes, The Foureyed Poet.

  76. Lidiya thank you for checking out my blog, Love your positive attitude and the one point that struck me as being a necessity for everyone today, : Simplify your life.

  77. I was lucky and my family moved to Italy when I was young – 12 years old – so I learned Italian with the other kids (and in school) – Yes, it’s a fun language! Ciao! e tante buone cose per te, Cara Lidiya! tomas ☼

  78. Hi,
    I’m so happy that you stopped by my blog as I believe we have lots of interests in common! =) I look forward to reading more of your posts, and I hope we can inspire and motivate each other! <3
    Christina

  79. Very interesting life perspective from some one who appears to be so very young. What is your book about and how is it progressing?

    1. Hello there! Thanks for commenting. It’s a fiction novel and I still think the main idea is really nice. Unfortunately it’s not progressing at all now because I have many things to do and I prefer writing for my blog as I want to grow it, and to be honest writing a post is so easier for me than another chapter of the novel. Really have to work on the procrastination and organization problem.

      1. Having written 5 books – two has a ghostwriter – I can appreciate the challenges. Look forward to reading (and sharing) your blog posts.

  80. Hi Lidiya,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post on Summer of Fun. Sounds like we share similar philosophies! Looking forward to reading more!
    Sue

  81. Wow, I’ve just found your blog and have subscribed you really seem like the type of person I’d like to connect with, I really look forward to reading more of your posts!. I also know what you mean when you say… ‘have many friends but almost none of them has my interests and actually understands me’.
    Lisa

    1. Thank you, Lisa! I just checked out your blog too and I love it. I’ll definitely visit it every now and then to see what’s new. We’ll keep in touch πŸ™‚

  82. Thank you for the like on my poem which let me find your page. I’m enjoying my read so far and hope to enjoy more. I likewise hope you will find other of my posts worth the read.

  83. Hi Lidiya, nice to meet you. What a wonderfully inspirational blog you have.
    Thanks for visiting our blog and for all the ‘likes’.
    Wishing you many blessings
    Alison

  84. Thanks, Lidiya, for stopping by my blog (and the Like).

    I’m glad you did and I’m glad I found your blog. I look forward to reading more of your thoughts.

    Be well.

  85. Hello Lidiya, I see that you are following what I write but I wish to tell you two things: 1) I have just about stopped writing for the very good reason that I have, I sense, written all that needs to be written in this regard and 2) Having had a brief look at your material, motivation and interests I strongly recommend that you read what I have written – in the recommended order (which is set out in the web site) – as that will empower you in many ways. Feel free to ask questions.
    All the best in your endeavours.

  86. Hey, thank you so much for stoping by my blog! means a lot since i’m just starting out :p. You’ve got a great blog to, looking forward to future posts! πŸ™‚

  87. I love your list. I can relate to lots of it including being called strange. Thanks for liking my self Learn Self Defense page. I just taught 2 classes this weekend and love being part of empowering others. Using self defense when I was attacked in college and teaching it now have been two of the most empowering experiences in my life.
    Life is this amazing adventure, but only if we take actions to make it great.

    1. Thanks for the positive comment. Keep up the good work. It’s wonderful that you’ve come this far in your self-development and now share what you know with others.

  90. Glad you found me so that i found you too.
    I am hopeful that i wil undertake the “getting 1% better each day journey” with your blog now.
    Thank you Lidiya!
    I loved d reasons u love poppy. πŸ™‚

    1. Nice to meet you too, Pamela! πŸ™‚
      Thank you for liking my posts. You are very welcome to join my journey. We’ll keep in touch through our blogs. Looking forward to your next posts.

    1. Thank you too for checking out my blog!
      I’d love to read it as I read some of your posts and liked what you’ve shared there, but I’m afraid I won’t have any time to make reviews or else.
      Now I’m busy with university, job (internship), reading and writing my stuff. My blog is my biggest personal project now and I don’t even have enough time to write many posts, I’m also planning a new ebook soon.
      Thanks again for commenting and if you want to connect with me you can always email me: lidiya@letsreachsuccess.com

  91. Thank you for you recent ‘likes’ on my blog, they do have purpose and they also give pleasure, they have also brought me to your own wonderful blog.

  92. I was just reading some random things about you, and they so identify with me!
    Here are just a few that do…1.- a Marketing student (my B.S. is in Marketing) 2.- a writer by nature (I love to write) 3.- a positive thinker (I live in positivity) 4.- enjoy deep conversations (I so enjoy deep meaningful conversations, there’s nothing like it) 5.- always seeking the hidden truth in everything and everyone (I do this as well) 6.- can find the beauty in everything (I feel that since God made everything, it has to have some beauty in it) 6.- interested in Psychology (I also took a lot of Psych classes while I was in undergraduate school)

    1. That’s so nice! I’m always happy to meet like-minded people!
      I think starting a blog would make a big difference in your life and you’ll love it. Give it a try if you want people to see what you write πŸ™‚

  93. There is a lot here to digest and learn from. You clearly touch lives. Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to what you share.

  94. Your blog is quite inspiring and motivating. From now and then, It sheds light on aspects of human being that seems to be dying as days pass by (unfortunately). Se keep thinking differently and writing πŸ™‚

  95. Good morning Liya – I love the Like button. Not because it means “I am popular”, but because it allows me to maybe connect with another person – different and similar – in this global village. Some of your key words, phrases, reasons for writing, your torrent of words(!) – all ring many bells with stuff in my head (and keyboard). So good morning, and thank you for allowing me to connect. Now where is the follow button ….?

  96. Hello Lidiya!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚
    You seem to be such a positive person! I’ve seldom met people like you πŸ™‚
    I like what you say about passion. Doing what we love is the best and, in fact the only way of truly being happy and accomplished; unfortunately, it’s often so hard!
    Let’s not lose hope, though! πŸ˜€
    Thank you for this wonderful blog,
    Ahlem

    1. Thank you too for stopping by. I’m glad you like my posts and ideas. We’ll keep in touch! Can’t wait to read your new posts πŸ™‚

  97. Hello Lidiya! Thank you ever so much for noticing Shadows of Love and noting a few posts with a like. It is so very appreciated.

  98. Thanks for stopping by my blog My Awakening Life. I love your blog as well. It is very encouraging to see a young person like yourself with such old soul knowledge. Keep up the good writing and inspiring us with your words of wisdom.

        1. Done. We’ll stay connected on every social media. I’ll be following your blog and waiting for your next posts.
          Stay inspired πŸ™‚

  99. thanks for reading my blog Lidiya, you must also get to Australia someday to see a lay back life style, I don’t think we are too stressed out down here, but any hints on how too be stress free are always good to read about adn take on- keep it up. Enjoy life!
    Tony

    1. Thanks, Tony! I’ve heard only nice things about Australia and have friends form there actually. It’s definitely on my list of places I’ll visit some day.
      Take care!

  100. Thanks for checking out my blog, Lidiya. I really enjoyed going through your articles! Truly inspiring. Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  101. Hi, thank you for visiting my blogaso I could find you. I love your posts and advise. I do need to read more of it , when I have more time! You are a fantasatic lady!

  102. Thank you for stopping by my blog and registering a “Like.” I meet so many fascinating people with similar goals online, like you. I am intrigued by your facility with language and your willingness to be open to some many new ideas and experiences.

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. Your blog is great. And I’m happy to hear that we have similar interests. Good luck with everything.

  103. Thanks for liking my post. I will check in on yours periodically to gain more inspiration!

  104. Hey Lidiya,
    Hope you are doing fine. You liked my post , i m here to thanks you and to know about you πŸ™‚ , And i am glad that i met another interesting person on this Blog sphere. Well, why you stopped eating non-veg ? and why u think no one understand you ?.. I am asking you these questions because they just raised in my mind and then in the last lines of this post “about” says , i can ask anything i like πŸ˜› ..
    I will be waiting for answers ..
    Take care and best regards
    Afsheen

    1. Hello there. Glad you stopped by my blog too.
      The answer to the first question you asked is way too long. And the moment I took the decision to stop eating meat I also decided not to persuade others to start living this way. And if you’re a veg, or know a lot on the subject, then I’ll say I did it for all of the reasons. And I jusr don’t think our bodies are created to process that kind of food. It also because of the animals – once we were all humane… Another reason, a big one, is the way animals are treated before being killed, all the fake hormones in them, all the misery they’ve been through and the diseases they have… and we eat all that. I guess I managed to summarize it in a few sentences.
      No one in my surroundings understand me, and who knows, maybe that’s the thing that makes me feel a bit special sometimes. But since I started the blog, I’ve had the chance to communicate with like-minded people.
      Thanks again for the comment and the visit. Keep up the good work and best wishes to you too.

  105. Hi Lidiya thanks for liking one of my posts, I really appreciate it! It was a pleasure reading your blog too! I really love the personal, heartfelt touch you place in each posting you have, and I really did learn something along the way too.

    The other post about finding your passion is spot on too. Opinions, past failures and doubters are from other people’s experiences and sometimes fear. You have to put the blinkers on, and not stop until you really find it. And even once you do find it, we have to keep working consistently at it. Otherwise as Snoopy says, we will lose that fine edge.

    Thanks once again, and will be looking forward to reading your blog too!

  106. Hi Lidiya! Thanks for liking my recent post! You’re blog is awesome!!
    xoxo,
    Lauren

  107. Hello Lidiya, thanks for stopping by my blog. You sound very interesting indeed! I’m sorry some people would call you “strange.” How rude!
    Perhaps that’s one reason I remain a recluse. By the way, I am an editor and proofreader, and would like to let you know that when using the possessive form of the word “it,” there’s no apostrophe. “It” only takes an apostrophe when it’s used as a contraction of “it is.” And now you know more about English grammar than 90% of native English speakers!

    1. Thank you for correcting me. Of course I know that rule. Actually I’ve known it for 12 years or so. But mistakes always happen when people write fast. I’m glad you pointed it out, though. Because I really do my best not to make any.
      Thank you for visiting me too. And actually I started taking ‘strange’as a compliment. πŸ˜€
      Best wishes!

  108. Hi Lidiya, thanks for your appreciation of my newbie blog post. am following yours too. i’m certain our blogs/posts will be interacting with each other in future. i’ll soon post some contrarian insights on forgiveness for your consideration. in the interim, let’s intentionally misinterpret a common cliche — what doesn’t kill me, makes me stranger. love & light to you, sister bliss

  109. Thank you Lidiya for liking my blog posts. I also enjoy your blog posts and your positive messages. Thanks for your contribution to making the world a better place!

  110. You have a very powerful blog, and I’m drawn like a moth to a flame:-) as I like to surround myself with positive people. I’m grateful that you visited my blog so that I could find yours. Keep well.

  111. I relate to you a lot Lydiya! honestly I have no words. You described me as weird as that sounds. I’ll be following you as if you were my mentor. So much I need to learn. So much to clarify. First language for me: spanish, I’m argentinean.
    Besos!

  112. Hi Lidiya,
    I’m an introvert too, but at the same time I love companies and socializing. English is also my second language (I’m a Nigerian). Most people think I’m ‘strange’. I’m n avid reader and love to write as well. You seem very interesting to me, as we have some things in common. Thanks for always stopping by my blog to like my post. You are an encouragement. Hope you do come back often.
    I like your blog… I love it. Your write ups are so motivating and inspiring. Hope to read more from you.
    Blessings.
    Grace

    1. We have so much in common πŸ™‚ Amazing!
      Thanks for the visit and comment. I will keep coming to your blog. Keep up the good work!

  113. Hi Lidiya, thanks for visiting my blog. English is my 3rd language but I learned it when I was 5 so it is my best one πŸ™‚ You are an interesting woman and I am already inspired by some of your words. I am feeling very ‘stuck’ as the result of many poor choices over the years. I am committing to improve – I like the way you put it, 1% every day. Looking forward to reading more…

    1. Nice to meet you! Thank you too for the visit and comment.
      Everyone gets ‘stuck’ every now and then. The question is what are we going to do about it. Good luck with that. I’m sure you’ll find a way πŸ™‚

  114. Thanks for your visit to Discover Santosha, Lidiya. Sounds like we share a a lot of the same interests. Here’s to contentment!

  115. Thanks for ‘liking’ my blog on feeding the neighbour’s child πŸ™‚ I enjoyed reading your list of random things about you. When I was young, I was often seen as strange, or “black sheep of the family” or a ‘misfit’. Now I see that being those ways made it easier for me to observe the world objectively and see things differently, more analytically. At 72, I am grateful to continue as a ‘misfit’ with many friends who are also proud misfits πŸ™‚ It takes a strange person to make the world a better place! I have no doubt you will do that.

  116. Hi Lidiya,
    Thanks for visiting my blog, to begin with πŸ™‚
    When I started going through your list of what you are about, the first time my smile turned into an empathic laugh was with this > ‘can’t do something well if it’s obligatory;’ But I recognize most of the other points as well… very much so…

    I think I will enjoy your blog πŸ™‚

  117. I like your blog. It’s refreshing to see someone else looking to put good out there. πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas.

  118. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

    I just read your piece on Minimalism titled “A New Philosophy of Living”, it is much more comprehensive than what I have written on my experience of minimalism . Nice to meet another “intro-optimist” introvert + optimist πŸ™‚

    More power to you and your writing. Cheers.

    1. Thank you so much for the beautiful words! I’m glad you liked my post on minimalism. I’ll be writing many more on that subject.
      Best wishes πŸ™‚

  119. I liked your blog a lot, Lidiya, particularly because of the tremendous amount of positive energy you have put into it…May God bless you and may you continue to write the way you are …

  120. I just had to comment on your Love for the poppy flower, it must be because you are secretly Canadian.. because the poppy is used on Canada’s remembrance day πŸ™‚

  121. Thanks so much for liking one of my posts. Your blog looks fascinating, and now I’m going to explore it. Happy New Year! Warmest wishes, πŸ™‚ Jane

  122. I am a big believer in small daily changes too. I can’t wait for more inspirational posts!

  123. Hi Lidiya! Thank you so much for liking my post! I’ve read so many of your posts and I just love your blog! So glad I was able to find it πŸ™‚ Happy new year!

  124. Heya Lidiya, I’m honored to have you read one of my entries, and when I decided to find out who you are, I’ve gotta say, I’m amazed! So much so, that I think I’ve found a kindred spirit within you. So thank you! I’ll be following you with great interest!

    1. Your blog is great. Keep up the good work and you’ll go far.
      Thanks for the compliment. I’m glad you like mine.
      We can keep in touch through our blogs to stay motivated πŸ™‚

  125. Π·Π΄Ρ€Π°Π²Π΅ΠΉ! благодаря Π·Π° “Like”!
    Haha, hope that is correct! Google Translate isn’t always the best, but it works. (I’ve never been to Bulgaria, but I’ve always wanted to visit. The closest I’ve come is Oradea, Transylvania in Romania.)
    I’m glad you enjoyed my short story! Your blog looks awesome so, I figure I’ll give you a follow.
    I, too, seek balance, success, and continue to cultivate joy in my life. Life can be hard, so I write. πŸ™‚
    Much love and respect!
    In Earnest,

  127. Hi Lidiya, Thanks for liking my post. I don’t generally subscribe to very many blogs. It’s a matter of time, but I’m intrigued by yours. It’s so well done and I appreciate your thoughts and love your topics so I would like to subscribe. But when I put in my email address, it tells me it’s incorrect. I’m not very tech savvy so I can’t figure out what’s wrong.

    1. Hi there! Thank you. It means a lot to me that you’d like to subscribe.
      Well, I guess you may have written it wrong. I just tried it and it works. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
      It’s supposed to be easy, but it’s technology – you know, anything happens.
      You may try again or with another email.

  131. Came across your blog and wanted to comment on one thing you said in the Bio.
    listening: I wasted many years forming responses while others talk. (I thought I was so witty) Now I listen on purpose and am amazed at the wisdom I receive.
    FYI, you don’t sound ‘strange’ to me.

  147. Hi Lidiya!
    I do enjoy listening to what you say about your life. I do love psychology & have used it most of my life in where & what I have done & accomplished. I have gone from a baby with lots of health issues which I was called a “Miracle Baby” as i was told this later on in life. I have accomplished a lot through the years as I was growing up getting through poor circulation, chronic allergies, low blood sugar & pressure, along with being someone who loved sports a lot. I don’t much now get to do sports, but watch a few good wrestling shows, racing a lot in movies & sports events & some boxing. I haven’t participated in boxing, but a good way to cheer others on to be competitive though. Racing is a thrill seeking event & have done it a lot. I just never got to the big leagues & now am just watching most movies if down & need a lift & seeing a lot of wrestling to get me up when very down also or just burnt from each day’s activities. I don’t care for news as so depressing & love playing online games to keep me interested since am physically disabled to work or do stuff that normal people can do each & every day. That is nice, but still not good enough in my life sometimes when find nothing else to pass time other than reading books in my hand or online too.

    1. Hi there, Rodney! Thanks for sharing all that.
      You sure have been through so much. And I think it’s what made you stronger than the average person.
      I see sport it a huge deal for you. And that’s not bad even if you can’t practice it. At least, you’ve found your passion. And, believe me, most people haven’t.

      I guess you’re constantly fighting with your inner demons and try to stay positive no matter how hard, meaningless or boring things are. But I’m not sure if you’ve actually seen all the benefits there.

      You have a lot of free time. Yes, it’s for a bad reason, and you prefer doing something else, but just can’t. But the fact in front of us is your free time. And most people don’t have it these days. That means that you can invest it in something big, something that can help others and you at the same time.

      This takes me to the next thing you need to stress on – all the hardships you’ve been through. I myself haven’t, so sorry if I can’t really get in your shoes.
      But here is my idea: you’ve got so much experience in dealing with bad conditions and difficulties, and can use that to inspire others. You’re already doing it with your blog.
      But to combine those two, I think you can read everything you can about blogging, get really good in it, and make a bog think of your blog. Once you build a name in the nitch, you can make another one connected with spots and share all you’re passionate about there. People can connect with you and ask for help, advice and direction, you can write ebooks or offer some kind of service.

      I know this all sounds too positive but I think it can change you life significantly as you’ll be doing it all for people. And that’s priceless. Giving is the ultimate investment and the more we do it, the more we get in return.

      And anyways, all we have today started from a simple idea. Combined with persistence, passion and belief in what you do, it can work wonders.

      You mentioned you read a lot, so I just wanted to recommend you Napoleon Hill. You may have heard of him and read his books already, but if you haven’t – give it a go. It’s all on the Internet for free.

      Cheers πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks for all your input Lidiya. I am thankful for people like you who can help me by helping me out in my thinking & what I do right now. I am also trying a lot to get feedback & comments in what I am doing & saying. I want them all to see how important it is to me of anyone & everyone who can get in touch & stay in touch about their selves. This to me is a great deal when we live to just destroy ourselves instead of learning what it means to recover & bring life back instead of thinking what life has brought us to. We control what we do in life as opposed to what life brings us otherwise. That’s why I bring topics I know about which will let others see there is a new way of life & hope too.
        Rodney
