And some good advice:) :
Hack Your Feelings Into Productive Energy in 6 Steps (
"A lot of people (specifically males) are trained from birth to believe that feelings are a sign of weakness. We’re always told not to let our feelings “get in the way.”
I find this to be a ridiculous concept. If you take into account all the factors that can affect your health, the way you “feel” is certainly not near the bottom of that list. In fact, I’d say it was rather near the top."

¿Usted se ha preguntado siempre si alguna gente hace realmente para arriba la materia que ella pone encendido el Internet? Pregunto a veces el alarde de la gente de la manera sobre sí mismos. Apenas indico hechos y si la gente tiene un rato duro que lo cree, Les demuestro la prueba con las palabras de la gente -- en la forma de testimonials. Apenas pienso que algunos sitios fuera de allí producen muchos del contenido de la chatarra. Y entonces hay algunos sitios fuera allí de eso correcto encendido, hasta la rotura del amanecer, y estoy diciendo seriamente que este un sitio se convirtió en un recurso verdadero para mí para %keyword% Ningunos gráficos o animación llamativos, apenas precise y la información opcional que me consigue en tacto con el everythng que buscaba en el asunto.
