Enter with good intentions

Welcome. Enter my site and share with me joys and sorrows, successes and temporary defeats. Temporary, because I know that I can fall to the ground any time, yet I know that I must stand up again as soon as possible. Each fall holds the beginning of a future rise. Are you ready to fall and rise with me? Then you are in the right place. I do not fight with others, but with myself.
I try to be better than I was yesterday. Should you support me on my way, I would be very grateful. I will try to reciprocate your visit with love, understanding and a good word. Please, feel free to enter. Welcome.   
Jozef Banáš
