Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Friends:

    You should be less of a risk taker.

  • How I responded:

    Friends mean well, but they have their own tolerance for risks in their lives. You need to define what you are willing to live through to get what you want in life. Do not let others set limits for you.
