As promised, I worked on the principles suggested by Josie Santi and Regina Bonds. Originally I was fearing doing this-coming up with a plan. But as I started doing it, it became really natural to complete. I feel real good about it; I have hope that I can do this.
In my younger years, I was very self-confident and would just push through, and keep pushing, until the end result was achieved. I’m sure I had disappointments or felt embarrassed at times, but I really don’t recall any memories of this or when the goal wasn’t achieved; I got what I wanted (within reason, of course).
