believes we are all more capable and stronger than we think; nothing is impossible if we believe we can; preparation leads to results; to achieve anything, we need to work at it; the road is full of up hills and down hills, successes and lessons learned; to keep moving forward, we only have to take one step at a time; challenges keep us motivated, in the discomfort lies our growth; we should focus on being OUR best and not compare ourselves to others; patience is an important tool; there is freedom in accepting what we have no control over; investing in ourselves is the best investment we can make; sharing our best selves with others will improve our world and help us lead longer and healthier lives…

It’s all about the journey.
