Most of my life I’ve been seeking balance.  Whether it was on top of a horse or trying to be the best parent/student/employee/employee/athlete-at-the-same-time ever … it has been difficult to find a comfortable combination of “doing all of the right things.”

It took waking up one morning and making a profound decision to change. I did it because I knew that I had two beautiful and impressionable daughters who were depending on me to not only keep a roof over our heads, but also to be the loving role model they needed and deserved.

Along the way, I’ve learned that I can.
