Sunday Superthoughts: Greatest Accomplishment

Hey everybody!

I've written this blog post three different times. Each time I get near the end, a new idea pops into my brain about what I should share. Finally, I've decided to share something pretty personal with you. Read on...

In high school, I had about 10 people in my closest circle of friends. It didn't take long before some of them started making bad choices about what they were doing with their after-school time (you don't need specifics, but you can use your imagination). It was this time in my life that I was truly tested via peer pressure to do some things that would have changed my life in a big way.

By saying no, I forged a new path for myself. I truly believe that when I didn't give in to peer pressure to do things that I know weren't right, I set in motion a chain of events that would take me to a place better than I could ever imagine.

I write today's post as encouragement to anybody who is being pressured by outside forces to be a certain way. Don't forget that you have the option to be yourself. And most often, that is the best option.

Talk to you soon,
