I constantly think through my personal culture and values, and take inventory of them. I want to be known for gratitude, wisdom, and flexibility. I also want to live more in the moment, and write a good and inspirational story with my life. I was talking to my father recently about risks, and how my grandfather (who died in 2016) wasn’t a risk taker. He passed up things that could have changed the course of his and my families life choosing to pursue the comfort of the known. I know all too well how easy it is to do this, myself. He was such a great man, but I want to write a different story with my life. So here’s to taking more chances, and continuing to pursue my personal culture and values. And to taking greater risks.
