One of the hardest lessons that I had to learn during my transformation from child to woman has been to Think for Myself and to stand up for myself and my beliefs. Sometimes the only way to be the best you can be is to put yourself first. Women tend to have the hardest time with this as often part of our job description is to care for others. I have been blessed with some amazing role models in my life of strong women. I have learned through watching them. I have received support, encouragement and advice from them. The best part of life is the challenge of the choices we have the ability to make. Life is good and the best is yet to come…I believe that!!
