no matter what is it- work or play- i have been lucky this year to be busy and growing as a person. the interesting thing with constantly learning is that – everything is the long way. it’s never familiar so there are no short cuts. i’ve never been a short cut kind of person- but there are weeks where i feel like i just can’t catch a break. luckily, i have found myself surrounded by people who, without question step up and catch me if i’m falling. i don’t thank all of you enough- but my life wouldn’t be anything without you.
