“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Michael Jordan
When I first discovered that I needed to tell my story, I was scared. Scared that no one cared. Scared that I would leave myself open to criticism and ridicule. I asked myself “who am I?” Imposter Syndrome cued up and ready to launch.

What do I gain from making myself vulnerable? I gain the satisfaction of knowing you recognize that this too shall pass. I gain the understanding that I’m not in control. I know that he who is in control gives us the power to believe — in ourselves, in his love, in our ability to love, dream, and achieve our best lives.
You have the courage to believe.
