Start somewhere, take a tiny step.
Something is better than nothing.
Everyone starts somewhere.

Work in progress

We are all a work in progress. Not every day is perfect, blissful, extraordinary, or filled only with the “happy” emotion. Everyone I know has down times, unhappy days, troughs of long, hard work, and problems they have or currently are working through. It’s okay not to be okay.

Are You Learning?

The expectation: achievement dance

“Achievement is rarely is in line with expectation; and if it is, dream bigger.” Each time you cross the threshold and reach a goal; a goal set forth determinedly by your younger self, you may encounter both a sense of satisfaction and a sense of gnawing expectation for more, for greater.
