I have missed out on some amazing opportunities. There are so many chances I didn’t take. There are too many challenges I backed away from.
We all have limits, but we all don’t have excuses. I took my daughter to see Hidden Figures (You NEED to see this movie). Many of my friends have taken their daughters to see this movie, because it was so much more than a movie.
