As well as being small loose particles of stone and sand, to have grit is to have courage and resolve; it is to have strength of character; it is to be brave.

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Shower Thoughts of an Extroverted Introvert; I know you've missed me. Missed me and all my whimsy, my truth, my inspiration - toot toot! (that's me blowing my own horn).
"Every job is a self portrait of the person who does it. Autograph your work with excellence." That little thunderbolt of motivation struck me and really got me thinking; Do I always autograph my work with excellence?
I woke up yesterday and wrote my first list in a long while.

Can, could, may, might, must, shall, will, would and should are the devil's time wasters. You don't 'try,' you 'do.'

That's why you have to change your modals from ones of probability, to that of obligation.
