The Struggle

The Struggle.

Is real. It always is, because I honestly think nothing can get realer than a struggle in life. In as much as sometimes we don’t even know that we’re actually struggling with ourselves, other people or things around us.

What's your Drive?

What’s Drives You?

Ever sat and wondered what drives you to do what you do every day? For me, it’s the promise of growth, the promise of change and the desire to be more than what I am at present. I appreciate that I have been to a point where I had zero drive, and I realized early enough…
