Keep An Open Mind: Say Yes

You may realize that life takes us on a journey. This journey requires flexibility and an open mind. When you say yes to the detour and yes to the route you didn’t think you’d go, you may find that you’ll meet just the right people and find your way, exactly how it was supposed to…

You Are Not Your Mistakes: Begin Again

I want to encourage someone today who may feel like they’ve messed up in life some way or another. I want you to know that everyone does. Mistakes are good for you when you choose to learn from them. Most of all when you choose to persevere. We don’t always understand life’s lessons right away…

You Make Better Choices When You Are Confident

Friendship: Grateful Moments
