“Do or do not… there is no try.”…I AM OFF*

I have a lot of stuff I have to do.
Trying to do them is not working.
Part of the reason is because I am taking too much time doing things I really do not need to be doing…right now.
Blogging is one of them.
There are many, believe me.
I am happy to be here to do them… I just need to “Do or do not…there is no try.”
So, excuse my absence. I can not make any guess as to when I will return. I only know that I will return…one day.
Until then, I wish you ALL the very best. You have been so loving and supportive of me and my crazy ways. I appreciate that. I will miss you all. Those of you who have been with me for a long time…I will be thinking of you even more. Even though we have never met in person, I feel as if we have been close friends for soooo lomg.
Stay happy and healthy,

Have a smile on your face every day.
Enjoy life to the fullest.

Believe in Yourself;

Luisa Doraz
