“Will the real YOU Please Stand Up?”
Life is a journey full of cycles and sequences of activities. It is marked by events, moments and opportunities. My journey has provided training on how to be the person I was created to be so that the real me could stand up. There have been no headlines along the way, no RSS feeds or trending on Twitter. I have learned that headlines don’t make a person extraordinary or remarkable. It’s consistently being the real you and standing on your story. “It’s extraordinary how extraordinary the ordinary person is.” (unknown)
