Today I am most THANKFUL for life’s lessons. Life has a way of bringing out the best, and sometimes the worst, in all of us, but either way, it will challenge your every fiber and force you to grow and expand mentally and emotionally. Every storm is followed by sunshine, and sometimes a beautiful rainbow. Although it may be hard to find the silver lining during hardships, know that it exists. Even when you can’t see it or have doubts, hold onto that belief, fight through, and remember this too shall pass. No different from school, we are tested to see if we have learned and retained the lesson, and such is life.
We have to go through the fire to be purified and polished. Gold is dull and lackluster until it is put through extreme heat and a diamond is no more than a lump of coal before it is put through extreme pressure. From both you are rewarded with a rare and valuable jewel, just like life’s lessons. The things we go through shape us into the people we are and strive to become. Be THANKFUL for your life lessons as they are a road map to your future and breadcrumbs from where you’ve come.
Life is the greatest teacher and the lessons it offers will carry you through the best and worst days. So, take it for all it’s worth and enjoy the ride. THANK you LIFE for blessing me with opportunity after opportunity to share my lessons with all I can reach and learn from all that I meet.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is… START. You have so many great ideas, but no idea where to begin or how to get the ball rolling. Don’t let the enormity of the dream deter you from beginning the journey. Put one foot in the front the other and start moving. Like a pebble rolling down a hill, the more it rolls, the more it picks up steam, the larger it gets, and it begins encompassing all it comes in contact with. Imagine jump-starting a vehicle. It’s difficult pushing it, 2 tons of dead weight, immobile, at a standstill. As hard as it may be initially, the vehicle begins to rock, the tires start turning, and inch by inch, you’re pushing forward, moving steadily. Eventually, you pick up a little momentum, a little more speed, enough to hop in, pop the clutch, and off you go. No different when pursuing your dreams and aspirations. It may seem like an insurmountable task at first, and enormous hill to climb, but the only way to achieve the dream is to START. Get moving, build your momentum, and enjoy the ride. #Begin2Win
