  1. I’m one of those child prodigies who dropped out of college – my teachers and most adults always told me I could achieve anything I wanted, but a handful of the grown ups in my life closest to me told me the opposite… that I would never amount to anything. It’s always easier to listen to the negative than the positive, and to let it hold sway over our lives.

    Now that I have my own daughter, I’ve realized that it’s my responsibility to prove to her that dreams are achievable and that, as women, we can do anything we put our minds to. My overriding goal in life is to make her life better than mine has been, and in order to do that, I have to make my own life better. It’s all about setting your sights on what you want and going for it!

    this is a great reminder that we should not settle. We need to make sure we are continually growing and learning, each day making ourselves better. When we do this we are better equipped to help our own families, our neighbors, and communities. Thanks!
