  1. I usually enjoy your messages. So, when this came up in my in-box, I listened as a treat to myself. I’m glad I did. I appreciate the encouragement. What spoke directly to my heart was the part towards the end where you spoke about the meme and “I want to be the person who crosses oceans”. I try to be that person, too, even though people around me don’t always understand it. Thank you.
