This takes guts, work, prayers, fortitude, and don't give up! I've had several complications, tears of joy and sorrow. I didn't let anything hold me back and I continue to thrive! I have done a ton of things that being MO would have prevented or slowed me down. Guess what the secret is? It is about mindfulness and mindset!

I appreciate and respect all the words of kindness everyone shows to one another. So many of you are doing so well and  It is very encouraging for a beginner like me trying to make up her mind.
