"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it." – Maya Angelou

I've been working hard already this year at my next big goals.

Of course I've had setbacks. I'm sure you have too.

Here's your permission to love all your failures in Episode 307.
