There's been a lot of talk over the past few days about the 'legacy' of these athletes, of the social progress which comes from events like these and of the lessons they teach us all. It would be nice to think that their legacy is global and profound, that it challenges perspectives, shifts attitudes and redresses relationships.
These frames sit on my desk. I share this photo because I am not "Political". I appreciate GREAT leaders. I am not a Democrat(My Mom is). I am not a Republican(My Dad is). I am an American. I am an American who believes in spreading love so that there is no room for hate. I believe that leaders should unify, inspire and connect.
Confidence really can unlock many doors to success as it can lead to many other qualities. Too many people are being held back by unnecessary fears and hiding talents that the whole world should see. Let today be the day that you start believing in yourself and start taking the first steps to your dream life!
We do not know what is around the corner, so we often cling to the negative feelings surrounding past events. It can be hard to let go, and often for good reason. I struggle all the time to release, and stay open. That evening I learned, even more so than my son, that when we trust that the universe conspires in our favor, good things happen
