My sentiments exactly!
I recently celebrated my birthday. T’was nice to be around close good friends, eating, chatting and drinking. It was definitely the affair, Champagne and yummy cake and good conversations. I wasn’t picture obsessive, like I usually am. I just enjoyed the good company.
Let’s see what this new year and chapter in my life will unfold. Two years ago I was in a similar position I am right now.Life at some what of a stand still and not sure what direction I wanted to take. Then I went on a path that put me back at square one. You’re probably wondering what on earth am I referring to- Or not! I’ll assume you don’t care to know. But this time around it’s different. I’m emotionally more mature and I can clearly see what is what and not worse than it is. And as such, I have come to see the good that is and the direction that my life is taking. Right now, I’m laying down the bricks to make my life the way I WANT IT TO BE.
Till next time,
(you guys are my friends, right?)

It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.
Henry Ward Beecher
All friendships need this. I haven’t always mastered this, but I think I’m getting the hang of it. Is this something you are aiming to master?
I would like to connect more with you, follow me over on Twitter. If you have been reading my blog for the short time I have been around, you know that I have a love and hate relationship with Twitter.

Till next time,
It feels like forever since I did a book review. The book review on the Slight Edge has been long overdue. So,let me just get to it. This book review will be quiet precise as I plan to later delve into the discussion of this book further. I want to start a dialogue and I want you to be apart of it, by commenting with your personal takes on this book.
The Slight Edge written by Jeff Olsen is an incredible book. Really and truly, its to the point and it highlights the desires and dreams that we all want. The book is divided into two parts, how the slight edge works and living the slight edge. How the slight edge works, is that it you first need to find the first ingredient. The first ingredient is that missing piece of the puzzle in order to get started and figuring out what that ingredient is gives you the power to take action. Well, in actually you need to know what to do with this missing piece of the puzzle in order to take action. So do the thing and then you will have the power, also highlighted by Ralph Waldo Emerson Essay on Compensation. Then you need to be a master. Mastery is key to adapting it all in your life. Mastery small steps and being consistent over periods of time will provide you the results that you need. Why is it so hard? Well, Olson eloquently points out that it’s not that these task are hard, they are easy to do and they are easy not to do. 95% of people give up far to soon because instant gratification, laziness and being discouraged. While 5% excel and that’s why they are the slight edge.
Living the Slight Edge exemplifies mastery and to do so, you need to invest in yourself. Investing in yourself is critical to your personal development. Investing in your own personal improvement gives life and light to your happiness, your accomplishments and your continuous learning. Your happiness is key and central to everything around you. Without having your happiness in check, success and accomplishments will come your way and you’ll be left empty.
Now, think about how you would like for the slight edge to work and how you plan on living the slight edge.
Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.
