If the future were certain, then we wouldn’t have to worry about anything anymore.

Kindness to yourself in the midst of hard work is a balance we often overlook.
Making sure your manager knows how to actually manage people is one thing, but sharing that responsibility to manage yourself is equally as important.
Struggles with myself and everything else have taught me lessons that no class ever could, and I do believe everything is always a matter of perspective.
My 2017 was filled with chances, failures, breakdowns, and a whole lot of trying to keep everything upright. But the best part of it was that I’m still here a year later.
