  1. Tori!! This was so good, you rocked this first one, and yeah, tough topic. It’s a long road to realize that others have these same struggles. And ultimately to realize that there’s no shame in choosing the path that is calling you, even if it means doing something totally different than you thought you’d be doing. We’re each unique and there’s an equally unique path there for the taking for every on of us.


    • Thank you for listening Mary! And beautifully said, we all are on our on unique path that has twists and turns we don’t even know about yet. There is no shame in deviating from the path our predecessors laid out for us!
