Social media is a huge part of business but let's not forget why we began. I realized through this, that "my why" is definitely connection. I thrive off connection.

You aren't the mistakes of your past, you aren't the labels cruel people or ignorant people put on you, you aren't the horrific things done to you or by you.

This post has been a long time coming because it’s been a long time in the making. It’s the trials in life that always grow us the most. I began the year with bright eyes and determination. Don’t we all? It’s January…it’s fresh, everything’s new, the world is yours for the taking. February holds promise, then March comes and the newness begins to wear off.
