Has it been a smooth road?
I don’t look back at it as smooth or rough. I look back at it as GREAT! Everything along the way got me here and HERE is great! Everyone has struggles, there is nothing original about a struggle whether it’s financial, emotional, physical, trust issues, self-inflicted, psychological, or just plain tired! We push through, we focus on our short and long term goals, and we get after it.
