This past year has been a year of challenge. It's felt like an uphill run with weights on my back, ankles, wrists, and head while people where were driving by hurled insults and garbage at me. And like any hard workout, I am glad I finished it. I am grateful for the experience because I am now stronger, more capable, and more motivated to keep going than I have felt before.
I was once told, "You can't help other people through something you have not experienced yourself." I believe that. I want to help a lot of people, so I guess I need all the "experience" I can get.
Here's to 2019!
