I AM: two of the most powerful of words; for what you put after them shapes your reality. We tend to believe what we are repeatedly told. What you say about yourself impacts not only who you are, but who you can become. Be kind, be aspirational, be tough when needed. I AM: Fit. Focused. Fearless.
Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.
