Grateful to reach this milestone! So many twists and turns on life's journey, looking back I am amazed I made it this far. Although the correct path was not always chosen, I have bennifited from the lessons learned and gained strength from each obstacle overcome. Without the support of friends, family, loves and mentors I would not had the courage to continue. Like the lotus growing in muddy water, breaking the surface becomming a symbol of purity, we must rise and blossom to our full potential, for ourselves and as an inspiration to others.
Know that whatever life presents you, the strength is within you to persevere and move forth.
