Doubt’s Kryptonite

The pursuit of anything worthwhile is, in large part, a war against doubt. All of us are fighting the same fight. All of us have doubts.

Laws of the Universe

Headlines often suggest that things just “poof” happen overnight. A record gets set. Someone files for divorce. Someone drops a few pounds. Someone gains a lot of pounds.
