Hey chum, don’t be glum! Change is hard and a wee bit scary. You’re totally up for it though. It may seem like this is just one more thing, on top of one more thing, and it is—you can still do it. You’re made of tuff stuff and this aint nothing, but a little thing. Your heart will live and...

Get out of your head and start living in the moment. You’ll do just fine. You’re ready. Go!
