I have learned a valuable lesson-no matter what happens you cannot give up on your dream. Yes, this lesson seems obvious. It's even something that I blabber on and on about but sometimes stress makes you think stupid stuff.
This past week I had to take my yearly blood test. And just like every year
before it's an afternoon filled with drama. Last year, the phlebotomist had a
hard time finding a vein in my arm. Instead of waiting patiently like every

For me the thing I haven't been able to succeed at is my blood work. For the past six years, I fail the test. My family has history of heart disease. I refuse to die

I had no idea that I was 12 hours away from passing one of the hardest
challenges of my life.
Is there something that you want to give up on? You have a dream that no
matter what you do it seems hopeless? My friends, try just one more time.
Who knows, you could be one step away from achieving your dream.
