Life has a funny way of testing you. And I have learned the hard way that sometimes the actual test is how you react to the issue. Starting something new brings fear and challenges to your plate and for me figuring out my balance showed the true strength of my determination. Also knowing that not everything works out, but hopefully what prevails is the lessons learned. I have always been upfront with the fact that I fail, and even when I think I may be right at the time, I can look back and realize where to grow from there.
