Lessons We Can't Run From
July 7, 2020
I "failed" on July 1st but I decided to keep going. I paid close attention to how my mind & body responded to this failure (or rather my fear of failure) and where I needed to shift my mindset and push harder. I told myself, "The goal was great but the journey is greater -- so keep going".
