Victem or Victor

Hardships and obstacles suck. Hardships and obstacles do not define me. They don’t. I have faced , stared down and climbed over some icky stuff. That stuff is not how I am pigeon holed or defined by anyone. So it is with with a headache that I listen to people come to me and proudlyContinue reading “Victem or Victor”

Tell Me Why You Are Great.
