3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I am now convinced that either due to diet or more likely an inability to get the Chromium out of food, I have spent most of my life Chromium deficient, because I've now had experience of both being with and without this mineral in sufficient quantity.
The problem with nutrition is that there are few absolutes - everybody's body chemistry is unique, and it's taken a lifetime to get a reasonable understanding of my own and what it needs.

9. ZEN WISDOM
Where can we find happiness? Happiness is not found in a tranquil life free of storms and tempests. Real happiness is found in the struggles we undergo to realize our goals, in our efforts to move forward.
