Notable Quotes   

~ “Your successes and your failures are both equal breaks in the foundation that you are building. You won’t always succeed at everything, but you won’t always fail, either. Each setback or victory is an important building block for your future success.”

~ “Having an occasional setback can be a real blessing in disguise. When you need to cancel plans or embrace your emotions, don’t forget that it takes time to grow stronger and smarter. Embrace the suck, it takes time to overcome your disappointments.” 

~ “Before you can help others, you need to know how to help yourself first. You have to fill the kettle up before you start sharing, but you cannot fill the kettle if there’s nothing to fill it.”
