Lots of self reflecting lately. I think sometimes people think I’m so self confident. I’ve charged life with a passion and that nothing can bother me. Maybe that people’s opinions don’t matter to me. But the truth is anyone that knows me understands how much i care for people as well as animals. This past week has been hard on a few levels. First losing Artemis and dealing with the overwhelming sadness of her not being in our lives and secondly trying to reflect on the directions i personally need to take in life both professionally and as a person. I’ve seen some major things i can do better on and I’m trying to achieve those things. In honesty it’s been hard to keep the energy i normally have with the emotional stress of the last week. But I’m working on being the person that i want to be and doing the things that make me happy. My passion for reaching people with the message of love of animals is what has driven me for years and will continue driving my future. Hang in there with me as i get my feet back underneath me. The future will be awesome and we will continue to show the world how to love all wildlife and in particular reptiles. I love the support you’ve all have shown my family and i. Each of you mean the world to me and all i ever want to do is make you proud! Have a wonderful day and please be kind to someone today!!
