Can you believe we’re already eight months into 2014? This year has been an incredible ride and I’ve learned more about what fuels me, where my motivation lies, and my capacity for love (and forgiveness) than I could have ever imagined. I’ve also been an observer of the incredible growth of my loved ones and been witness to the long awaited success of friends that have given more than sweat, blood and (plenty) tears to make their dreams come to life.  
Through my own personal experiences and the stories that have been shared with me, there has been a consistent theme. Be afraid of not trying, but never fear failure. In your career, in relationships, and in life; the only boundaries that exist are the ones we place on ourselves.  
To wrap this up, in the words of the late, great Christopher Wallace…

Stay far from timid, only make moves when you’re heart is in it, and live by the phrase
