Sarah, this is spot on. We put our eyes on the prize and often forget to live in the moments that take us to those mountaintops.

In a society fixated on instant gratification (streaming content, immediate likes, etc) it's tempting to want the same from success stories.

I appreciate how you use your own background to push us to dig deeper and see our experiences as a whole instead of a "before" and "after"--to even find success in failure.

There's so much wisdom here.
