It’s easier to abdicate responsibility, easier to put of taking action. Procrastination and denial are two of the culprits.But living in the LIGHT is truly more gratifying. It’s the difference between waking up to a beautiful sunning day or preferring a dark, cold, rainy day that provides the excuse to stay in and do nothing.
