Life is a journey and for the most part, you have always chosen the more difficult path. You like a challenge, you like the feeling of achievement. In the process, you might have made yourself a little crazy and the people around you. Fortunately for you, you have a wonderful family and amazing friends that love and support you. Just remember one of the most valuable life lessons is to learn from your past. The paths you walked were not mistakes but roads traveled that lead you to become who and where you are today. As you continue your journey, please keep these lessons close at hand to use as a map for a happy and healthy future.
