You Are the Most Important Person in Your Life

On the Path to 2018

When I was sixteen I had a poster on the wall in my bedroom with the most elegant ballerina standing on point with a caption that read “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it, if you can dream it, you can become it,” by William Arthur Ward.
