Infrequently Asked Questions

Do you think people can really change?

Change is a possibility, not a given. It’s important to recognize that people can change, but it’s just as important to know when to move on. In most cases, change doesn’t happen until someone wants it for themselves. 

What belief took you the longest to unlearn?

I had to learn it the hard way that the past may most certainly affect you, but it’s the knowledge of life that you gain and eventually move on from it that matters the most. Your present and the actions and decisions you take, are what’s going to shape you into the amazing human being you are going to be. 
Don’t live in the past. Take a grip of your present and you will hold the reigns to your bright future.
