So I know we all wish we would have looked at life a little differently when we were younger. Some of us stumbled off our paths and some of use found new ones. Some of you might have found your passion at a very young age and some of you might be discovering yours right now! Whatever your story is though you can’t change the past.

“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye,
life will reward you with a
