There Is No Such Thing As Ready

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” Now is the only time…

Welp, I gained 3 pounds.

Well, I have to say, my May goals are getting crushed. My motivation has been exceptional.
