CARLEY'S WORDS OF WISDOM
Be weary of your time and pick your spot because narrow is the window and opportunity to make it to the top. You live life everyday by moments and the hardest thing to do is to know when a moment means something. You have to realize that particular moment that something special is happening, and it's not as easy as it seems. It doesn't last long at all and when you do realize it you have to believe in it and trust it fully. You have to nurture it and see it through, pursue it, make it happen even if things don't go according to plan. Just remember that the seed is still there, reigns will come, and life will be given to the dream.
