Think About This: “When was the last time you embraced a situation that you didn’t like? Did you complain through the entire experience or did you run away from the situation altogether? If you did either, you missed a wonderful opportunity to be something that you’ve never been before. It just might have been that one thing that you had been wishing for.” ~ Les Brown
