What is the greatest lesson

I have learned?

Life isn’t always fair, but you have to make the most of what has been put in front of you. My youngest son was diagnosed with an intellectual disability at two years of age, and at the time I thought it was the worst thing that had happened to me, but now, looking back, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Not everyone will understand you or like you, and that’s OK.

One poignant piece of advice that a professor in college shared with me is “always compare myself to myself rather than comparing myself to others.” This resonated with me so deeply and still does today. These words of wisdom inspired me to embrace every facet of who I am authentically and focus intently on evaluating personal growth by recalling the evidence of where I’ve been, how far I’ve come, becoming clear about where I want to be and celebrating all of life’s wins great and small along the way.
