I need to have an blog post (approximately 1700 words) to be proofread.

The topic is about personal development and it is written in English. Here is a small sample of the text:

"This first lesson I learned took some time until I fully understood it – however, I now realize that this is a very crucial thing to grasp when your future in concerned.

People seem to blame everyone else or their surroundings for their current situation. At the same time, they are not able to see that they are responsible for their current situation.

The post is approximately 4 pages long.

I want appropriate spelling and grammar and punctuation. Also, if you can improve my formatting, that would be appreciated.

I hope to have the final copy back in 5 days but I am negotiable.

If I like the quality of the work, I have 4 other posts that needs to be checked in the same manner as the one I'm talking about here.
