I wake up every morning, more often than not on about two hours of sleep, ready to go and take on the next day, ready for whatever is coming next. I'm EXCITED.
I am very aware that I am blessed to feel this way, and am very grateful for every gift I've been given, every opportunity that has been offered to me and for the wisdom to be able to see that I had something to offer.
