“I learned one of my greatest life lessons—if you don’t know who you are, you will never be content with what you can do…

I choose my work based on what I have defined as my purpose and say “no” to everything else. When I am buried under a to-do list, I prioritize and let some things go with no guilt. My exercise and fun time can’t be compromised. These are the good days.
