She shouldn’t care more about you

than you do yourself.

Your success should be on your shoulders

not on hers.

She can guide, support, aid,

but you must do the work,

think the thoughts, stretch your brain,

believe you can.

There is no easy way.

You need to care enough to be your best,

trust the tools and safe venue for risk,

let her cheer from the side,

as she watches you ride

away into your future.

You need to trust, this isn’t a place

to stay.

    That is exactly what I am starting to believe, that this is not the place to stay 🙂

    We definitely cannot just stay in place, we need to grow. Thank you, Shawn!

    It’s terrifying how relevant this is to me right now! So cool, I love it!

  4. Plateaus need their own hoist. I am only going as far as I take myself.
