I want to share this advice with everyone I know.

It’s so easy to get penned in by the expectations of family and society. To define success as defined by someone other than yourself.

Sometimes, it takes stepping back to see expectations for what they are: opinions, values that you may not share.

It’s harder to set our own expectations as aligned with our own values, but it’s so worth it!
