“Every time an opportunity challenges you to become more than you presently are-to take responsibility for the state of your life, express yourself authentically, act with integrity, pursue your dreams, open your heart wide to that experience of life, say no to what doesn’t inspire you and yes to what does-you are acting with courage”. Margie Warrell
