Remember each new day you get to turn a page in your life and write your own story. So how do you choose to write it?”
— Tammy Mentzer Brown
Challenges and disappointments will come, but you determine your destiny. So, do not feel discouraged. If you have a setback, pick yourself up, try again, and make sure you’re ready for the comeback.
You are so much more powerful than you know. Don’t shy away from unexpected opportunities; embrace the unknown and step out fearlessly. If it does not work out, at least you would’ve tried and learnt a valuable lesson on the way. Remember, you can always try again because you are the author of your story.
Together, let’s take that leap of faith. As always, we at Out and About Magazine are here to encourage and highlight what is possible if you believe in yourself. You can count on us to give you that extra push. You’ve got this!
