I was always a strong-headed young lady. From the time I was a little girl I learned how to get other kids to see things my way. But when that strength became a controlling weakness in my life, I knew it needed to change.
It was a hot August day. The sun was shining bright. I made my way across the busy parking lot to my car in a daze.
As I sat in the sweltering heat, I couldn’t focus on anything else but the medical report in my hands. The doctor had taken over an hour to explain in detail what was happening in my body but all I truly remembered hearing was, “stage 4 adrenal failure.” I thought, What does that even mean?
I took the news with a grain of salt and asked how I could manage my workouts and my current work schedule. The doctor looked sternly at me and said, “Kris, I don’t think you understand.

Most people treat happiness as a destination. I know I did.
If you want to achieve great things in life you have to grow personally. It’s a necessary part of the process, because your dreams will only be as solid as you are.
In the pursuit of your dreams, you’ve likely thought about all of the ways you need to grow, but have you ever given thought to areas that need to ‘go’?
