How were your workouts this week?

Any fun plans for Halloween weekend?


No one said it would be easy. No one said that everything would go smoothly and perfectly. No one said there wouldn’t be sacrifice or pain or long days and sleepless nights.

In fact most people said I was crazy.

And maybe I am. So what? 

Maybe I think it’s worth the risk. In fact I FEEL it’s worth the risk. I feel in my core that something about this is worth every challenge, every risk, and every sleepless night.


I don’t expect most people around me to understand; to believe it; to agree. And quite honestly, I see most days that they don’t.

Yes, it’s upsetting and challenging and adds to the roller coaster of the whole thing, but I also understand it’s necessary. It’s part of what will make me stronger, make me a better planner and leader and dreamer. Make me better at taking the ideas I dream up in my head and turn them into a reality.

You may not understand it, but I do.

You may not see it that way, but I do.

But if we don’t believe in our own dreams, if we don’t believe that we have what it takes to make it happen, if we don’t believe that it’s worth it, then we’ll never be able to make it happen.
