Ramblings of a People-Pleaser

“Libra’s are kind but some people construed it as their weakness” Is being kind considered a weakness? That is the question I keep asking myself. They’d say, fake it ’till you make it.

Did you remember my post about Saying No to “Not”? (Click the title to view it) Though I have been trying to practice it, like everyone else, I find it so bizarre and hard to follow. And I certainly know, I also break that. And, as I was writing that article, there is one word that I had a hard time, looking for its positive counter part. That word is Procrastination. This is one killer word for me. I am certainly a slave of it. (Who isn’t? right?) I always considered myself  The Great Procrastinator. But, I got this light bulb moment after days of …
