“Pursuing my dreams is the hardest thing I have ever done. There are moments when I want to give up and walk away. There are moments when I do – but I always start again. I have missed the mark. If I didn’t I’d question the size of my dream. Missing the mark isn’t failure – giving up on my dreams is.” ~ Adam Biel in Day 98 – Dream Big
