Biggest personal lesson you learned in 2018:
Alexis J | This year was so much patience and having to just trust. One step has to lead to your next step and you can’t skip any steps no matter how bumpy the road gets. There was a lot of “Why God?”s and questioning why I was there in that circumstance, but learning that there is a reason and it’s to get to whatever is coming next.
Jay | 2018 was a lot of patience. I was very ungrateful of a lot of blessings I had. I was doubting myself and then you get blessed and you’re like “what was I worried about in the first place?” So it’s just time and patience and learning just to calm down and everything will work out for the most part.
