As I was watching the 2014 Espy Awards I was touched by Michael Sam’s acceptance speech. He quoted the late great Arthur Ashe, “Start where you are, Use what you have, Do what you can”! How many of you find yourself saying, I don’t have what it takes? Other people have it so easy! Not today, maybe tomorrow. I find myself listening to the same chatter from time to time and as my friend Stacy says, restrain the monkey. If you step out and just Start where you are, each day you will get a little closer to your goal. Use your gifts and talents and do what ever it is your heart desires. The road is not easy. Somedays you may want to throw in the towel but remember why you started.
