Some words for the day:

“Own your choices, especially the ones you avoid. Everything begins with choices. You could easily brush that off as something you’ve heard before. Most people do and that’s why they stay stuck in ruts they don’t want to be in. They’re unwilling to make the choices that would get them out and move them in the direction they want. Be aware of the self choices you’re willing to make and the choices you’re not willing to make. Own both and act with confidence. Be willing to make any choice you need to take to get you where you want. Because if you won’t do that, what are you really doing?”

Perfect temps this morning. Enjoyed it fellas and have a great one! SYITG.
