Living for Each Today

Writing (for me) in any form is therapy. I love journaling because I don’t have to care about correct grammar, punctuation, or making any sense whatsoever.

It is a determined discipline of the mind, body, and spirit—all that we are. Examples of self-control include exercising, detoxing our bodies, and consuming healthy foods… Continue reading Focused Discipline
