Another was maybe six months ago and today's was from a weekend right before pandemic totally changed our lives. It was tough. It was tough when bean esa president and then i was an intern advent health. Which looking back. It was very beneficial. I believe that we have to have lows in life to appreciate the high moments. In fact the the high moments are are made better stronger and more lasting. When you have those moments where you can be in a humble state of mind when you can be in a reflective state of mind where everything is not that the peak of its experience taught me to welcome those moments. They're not comfortable. They're uncomfortable and itami to welcome the uncomfortable moments. Because that's where you learned deaths. That's where you come back to. God the most and so looking back it was. It was difficult but it was necessary to take the next step. I had a conversation. With moses meyer a mentor. The student association president of my university right before me. We talked about why everyone should own a pair of tacos. How he asks girlfriend and mary him at monse. Up to what he saw me before. I saw it within myself and how he found a life and purpose after leaving office. I'm so glad to be back for a little as i prepare to share with you guys next year. Thanks for writing with me.
