No guts, No glory. A saying I learned early in life and one I’ve strived to live by. For as long as I can remember, this is something my parents have truly embodied. And if they ever doubted themselves, it never showed.
They taught me to have grit, take a few risks, and have confidence. I’ve learned that life will knock you down, probably more than once, but it’s not the number of times you fall, it’s how you get back up.

I could hear the beeping off in the distance. It was faint, but I knew it was there. After what seemed like an hour the beeping stopped. And even though silence can be eerie, this time it was peaceful. My mind started to relax, slowly drifting off into another world.
