I didn't think that I would ever find the courage to start writing again. When I was finally released from prison my best friend died from… Continue

Fitting In or Having the Success You Desire

A few years ago in a conversation with a friend, she asked how I was as I moving through a problem that had come into my life. I replied that I was focusing on solutions. She responded that she would do the same but since everyone else was complaining about everything, she felt she wouldn’t fit unless she did the same.



I asked her, and I ask you “Which is more important – fitting in or having the success you desire?”



“The definition of Insanity is doing the… Continue

Spice Up Your Life - The Flexitarian Way - Bindu Grandhi, Author

Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
