I wanted to take the time out to tell everyone that TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE!!! (both literally and figuratively). Time is so precious and tomorrow is never promised. Within last year and a half, I have experienced both the deaths of my friend who died in a motor vehicle accident and the death of my grandfather who suffered from medical complications.

Many people have goals and dreams but are too afraid to step out on faith and live out loud. If you have an idea, pray about it, research it, come up with an action plan, and simply go for it. And never be afraid to ask for help. Take the leap.
I encourage everyone to not be afraid of failure. Conversely, don’t procrastinate because that’s also another way fear can manifest itself. For me, the fear is not in failure but the fear is in not trying. Go for what you want and desire.
