I guess I should be grateful that I'm in a place in my life where I can turn down seemingly perfect opportunities for the sake of my sanity. I learned a year ago to trust my gut for the first time in my entire life. For 26 years, things were black and white -- decisions were easy because I always knew what the "right" thing to do was. This left me feeling completely void of fulfillment and happiness. Since trusting my gut a year ago, I have been the happiest and most content I have ever been. Learn to trust your guts.

That's my best life lesson for you guys today.
