    Me too. I want you to picture yourself running towards a finish line wito me at the line in one of those ridiculous cheer leader outfits. Cheering you on. I pictured it and couldn't help but giggle. You have to be a size 4 to fit such. Any way there is a prize at the line. Keep your eyes on the prize.

    Many, many, numberous days of feeling discouraged. Those were the days that I’d straighten my “crown” hold my head a little higher just to remind myself and those around me that I was on a mission and they were either with me or against me. If they needed help with me placing my foot on their head to keep them out of my line of vision so be it. Try water aerobics, I love rock climbing, and weight lifting. Anything that can be done outdoors that’s where you’ll find me.

    I’ll respond honestly and with compassion as needed. Never look down upon others who are making the correct move for their personal outcome.
