Pushes you the hardest?
WT is all about Defining Your Normal. So, let’s find out more about what makes you You!
What is your definition of ‘normal’?
Normal for me is the abnormal. I think in life the only thing that is normal is that everything and everyone is unique.
We are all about celebrating people’s awesomeness, so what makes you awesome?
I’m not that awesome, however, I do have many really awesome friends.
Being able to accept compliments.
What makes your life easier?
Life becomes easier after overcoming a life challenge. We develop the tools we need to get over similar challenges that we will face in the future.
What makes your life more difficult?
When people do not think of the greater good and only think of the impact of an action on their life.
What is your definition of success?
To leave the world a better place then I found it. The causes and values that I would like to move the needle on are: environment sustainability, animal rights, equality, justice, and unity.
