In doing so, I have found a new sense of focus, purpose and determination with life overall. A new joy, that is lost in the doldrums everyday life. It is a 4-hour vacation from the stress and problems and has no side effects. It has not solved any problems, but rather, allows for the digestion of problems, issues, and life in a peaceful tone.
