You know, sometimes you don’t need someone to rub your back and tell you everything is going to be ok. Sometimes we need someone who is going to smack us upside the head and tell us to snap out of it and grow a pair. It’s time. Do it. You so got this.

  • The language is “tough” but the
    thought is “tough love” and the
    lesson is “make a plan” take action
    and go after your dream.
    It takes courage. The best people I
    know or have known – were “overcomers” and people who grew
    up and faced their challenges.
