It's a long process, it's not sexy, but it works.
I definitely have the will to endure
My issue is with follow through...consistency as you say.
I've tried the Foci and just like everything else, I try it a few times and move onto something else and forget about it. This goes for herbal remedies, Yoga, video games, even paintings and projects. I'll start and then get bored or just not persist.
Bit of a contradiction to be able to endure so much and then on the other hand try something, see it's potential to help me, and still flake?
