And even if all the procedure go as we want, a very small percentage sometimes fail because every time we must find the right proportions for the specific factors. Yet, I can’t forget that the greatest things happened to my life after a period of introspection, self-questioning and disappointment because I didn’t get what I thought I wanted. It was something like restoring the cosmic balance…
